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: Make plans to hang with friends, try new restaurants and find other reasons to get out of the house this week. As estrogen and testosterone rise, they’re making you more outgoing and interested in socializing!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Thanks to high estrogen and testosterone, which up your confidence and derring-do, you may be tempted to try something that is way different from what you usually do. For instance, you might apply for a job that sounds interesting, but for which you have absolutely no qualifications, you may drag your friends to try a restaurant with a strange fusion menu that frightens even your most daring pals, or you could be tempted to give your phone number to someone who is the total opposite of what you’re looking for in a long-term mate!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Your concern about your appearances isn’t as high as it was in the first two weeks of your cycle as estrogen dips and progesterone rises. As a result, you may skip putting on makeup, tie your hair back rather than blow it out and see how long you can get away with wearing those cut-off sweatpants with the holes in them before anyone notices.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Tears may suddenly well up in your eyes while watching a sad movie, reading the news or for really no reason whatsoever. Why? Estrogen plunges today, which brings down mood-stabilizing serotonin in the brain. Now the good news: Research shows that letting out a few tears over anything or nothing at all is a proven stress reliever that makes you feel brighter in seconds. So grab some tissues and start crying your way to a better mood!
