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’re likely to go with whatever whim you get today, whether it’s playing hooky and going to an amusement park, signing up to a new gym or deciding to plan a big party for no good reason at all. Why? Rising estrogen is bringing out your fun and silly side and amping up your energy, and rising testosterone is making you more impulsive, making you more likely to act on any fun and silly ideas you have.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Careful out there, Week 2 gal: High estrogen and testosterone are putting your head in the clouds and making you prone to missing important details, like that a car is coming at you as you cross the road, your boss is lurking behind you as you surf the Internet or that a big pile of stuff in your closet is about to come tumbling out in your direction the moment you open the door!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may be considering joining in on classes or activities that you would have shrugged off during Week 2 because they were too sedate, such as yoga, meditation or pottery painting. That’s because rising progesterone is slowing you down and making you drawn toward more relaxing pastimes.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Unlike Week 2 gals, you may be hyper-aware of things around you. What’s more, you’re prone to putting a negative spin on why they’re there in the first place, for instance, you may see a car coming at you as you cross the road and accuse the driver of deliberately trying to run into you, you may notice your boss looking in your direction and think it’s because she’s not happy with your performance or you may theorize that your significant other purposely piled all the stuff in the closet so it would all fall out on top of you the moment you opened the door to be able to capture it on video and laugh about it. The reason for your eagle eye and suspicious mind goes to plunging estrogen, which makes you more vigilant about your environment and more apt to see the darker side of things.
