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: Today optimism-boosting estrogen has you giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Have your period? Then a rise in the “trust hormone” oxytocin that occurs during menstruation makes you tempted to believe something you shouldn’t, like that you’ll get the money owed to you next week or that jean stretch pants look good on anyone.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’re more likely to tap into your naughty side today, meaning you may drink more alcohol, sneak a cigarette or do another “bad” behavior. The reason? High estrogen and testosterone are making you impulsive and bold, a combination that eggs on your inner wild child!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Doughnuts, cookies, chocolate, oh my! Is there no diet resolution rising progesterone won’t try to make you break today? Not unless you resolved to up your annual Thin Mint consumption, there isn’t.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Careful of your feet, elbows and forehead. You’re more apt to stub your toes, bang into doorways and misjudge the height of the car when climbing in. The problem? As estrogen plunges today, it puts a dent in your coordination and dexterity.
