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: Sure, embarrassing things happen—such as bumping into a pole, breaking a heel or stumbling down the steps. Luckily, if they happen to you today, rising estrogen is upping your feel-good brain chemicals, which makes it way easier to laugh off embarrassments and quickly move on without too much fuss.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: High testosterone is boosting your confidence. So take the opportunity to ask for something you want—for example, flex-time from your boss, money you loaned to a friend or a neck massage from your sweetie (and not the chintzy five-second kind either)!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Ice cream! Doritos! French fries! Oh my! Is there any snack item that won’t tempt your tastebuds today? Rising progesterone is betting a big, fat no.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You’re less inclined to try unfamiliar things today, like a different restaurant or a new driving route. Why? As estrogen and testosterone fall, they lower brain chemicals responsible for making you feel confident and impulsive, so you’re more comfortable with the tried-and-true.
