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

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Keep your eyes and ears open for new opportunities! Your rising estrogen and testosterone are making you more interested in learning more about the outside world, including listening to the news, reading online posts, surfing the ‘net, networking with colleagues and doing other activities that give you more information. Somewhere in that sea of data may be the lucky break you need to find a better job, get back to school, open your own business or connect with the love of your life!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Rising estrogen is supposed to be making you feel super-happy today. However, this high hormone is also making you more prone to major stress-outs. The result? If you’ve got something today that makes you worried—say, a job interview or test—it could turn into a tummy-churning stress-out of epic proportions. Some good news? Stress relievers—like deep breathing and visualization—can help quash a stress-out before it gets out of hand and get you back to the happy mood your estrogen has in store.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll probably find yourself getting lost in daydreams today as rising progesterone slows your thinking and has your brain going on auto-pilot more frequently than in the past two weeks. Luckily, research shows you can still get a lot of work done while daydreaming. Turns out, when you let your thoughts wander, your brain connects different ideas together to help you come up with creative solutions to nagging problems.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel the urge to chew out a friend, family member or co-worker today as estrogen plunges. Before you blow your stack, try treating yourself to a cookie, soda or ice cream cone. Recent research shows that sugar cools off a hot temper by supplying the brain with glucose, its primary source of fuel, which gives you more control over your emotions.
