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 find yourself procrastinating today, for instance, putting off paying your bills, working on an important project or setting up an appointment. The reason? Rising estrogen is making you feel optimistic, which gives you the false sense that you’ll eventually get to these important tasks before their due date.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: With estrogen and testosterone peaking, your energy level is at an all-cycle high. So, be careful when chugging caffeinated drinks and watching edge-of-your-seat thrillers. You may end up getting the jitters or triggering nervous habits, like nail biting or jaw clenching.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: If it’s the first half of your Week 3, your day may be dotted with bouts of irritability and frustration as estrogen plunges, taking your good mood and patience down with it. If it’s the second half of your Week 3, it’ll be harder to ruffle your feathers as rising estrogen and progesterone put you in a mellow, calm mood that makes wasting energy on life’s little irritations not worth the trouble.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: It’s not that you become totally self-centered this week, but your focus is definitely on your own comfort and care, for instance, you might change the TV channel to one you like when someone else is watching a show, you may take 10 minutes to readjust a car seat to get it to your liking when riding as a passenger in somone’s car, and you might turn the the a/c on super-high when everyone else is already freezing. But, who can blame you? Plunging estrogen, testosterone and progesterone are putting you in a withdrawal-like state that results in down moods and makes you extra sensitive to physical discomforts!
