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: Rising estrogen is making you feel more and more extroverted and that can make you feel like a caterpillar ready to escape its cocoon. Staying indoors at work, school or home is a real drag. You’re happier out in nature, going for a shopping trip or dining al fresco.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may be feeling prouder of your accomplishments today as high estrogen and testosterone boost your confidence. And this may lead you to wonder why other folks aren’t praising your accomplishments, too. No worries: Your high hormone confidence will banish any shyness you might otherwise have had about prodding friends, family and coworkers for compliments!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Your taste in potential partners changes this week. While a rough, rugged look caught your eye last week when estrogen was peaking, this week’s lower level of estrogen has you drawn to more sensitive, softer-looking sweeties.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may sense a slight lack of self-assurance today as estrogen and testosterone plunge, taking confidence-lifting brain chemicals with them. As a result, you may find yourself hunching instead of standing up straight, volunteering to answer questions less often or second-guessing things you’ve said or done. Try not to beat yourself up about it. Instead, think back to successes you can be proud of. Research shows that reminding yourself of past achievements helps boost flagging self-confidence right back up.
