Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: You may see the silver lining or think that something happened for a reason even if you’re not sure yet what it is. Credit for the optimism goes to rising estrogen, which rosies up your view of the world and has you more likely to focus on the positive side of things.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may be doing routine acts more automatically without any thinking today, such as making breakfast, feeding the dogs or washing dishes. In fact, you may even go through a whole series of acts and not even remember doing them. The reason? High estrogen and testosterone are making your brain work at its fastest speed, so you don’t have to slow down and think about what you’re about to do.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Unlike Week 2 gals, you may find yourself a bit on the foggy side today. For example, you may walk into the kitchen and forget what you went in there for or you may put on two different shoes and not realize it till you’re almost out the door. Blame goes to rising progesterone, a hormone that saps your mental energy.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Unlike Week 1 gals, you may be prone to a woe-is-me attitude, wondering why something bad has happened or imagining how the outcome could get worse, which could fill you with fear and dread. The problem is plunging estrogen, which brings down that feel-good outlook you enjoyed so much during the first half of your cycle when this hormone was on the rise.
