My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s hormone horoscope: Consider taking time to go over your household budget, find ways to trim expenses, look over bills for errors or find other ways to save. As estrogen and testosterone rise, they make it easier for you to focus on details by upping your powers of concentration, they’re giving you the mental oomph you need to come up with creative ways to put more money in the bank and they’re delivering a heaping dose of optimism that makes you less likely to get overwhelmed or frustrated when going over money matters.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormone horoscope: You may find yourself using more slang, speaking with a deeper native accent or making one up just for fun, telling more jokes or singing even when the radio isn’t on. That’s because high estrogen is amping up your desire to talk, sing or use your voice in other ways, plus it’s making you sillier than during any other week of your cycle. Together that translates into you being a lot more fun to be around today!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormone horoscope: Rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone are mellowing you out and bringing you down to Earth compared to where you were in Week 2. This means you can use Week 3 as a “reality check” phase of your cycle. For instance, you can use it to tell if you’re really into that hottie you were so ga-ga about last week or it was just high libido-revving testosterone talking. You could use it to figure out if the project you’re working on is going in the right direction or if high estrogen from last week was making you a little over-optimistic and now you need to make adjustments. Or you could use it to see if you’re really okay with your roommate being late with the rent/your significant other forgetting your anniversary/your neighbor parking in your spot yet again or if last week’s high hormones were simply making you overly hopeful that they wouldn’t do it again and now it’s time for a serious talk.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Today’s hormone horoscope: Your challenge today is to focus your mental energy on a task that really needs to get done, for instance, a project at work or writing checks for bills that need to be paid. With estrogen and testosterone plunging, you have less mental energy and you’re more easily distracted by anything that’s even slightly more interesting than dull to-dos.
