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: Influenced by energy-boosting and project-launching rising estrogen, you may be inspired to come up with a new system for doing something that saves time, makes your life easier or simply makes a task more fun!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Some may say you’re a little colder or more flippant than during other weeks of your cycle, for instance, you may think a fired co-worker had it coming to him for poor performance, a friend deserved to get dumped for flirting with someone else or that it would be good for Lindsay Lohan to cool her heels in the slammer for a few years. Why the lack of heart? High estrogen and testosterone are making you less sentimental and emotionally attached, which can lower the empathy you have for others.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You have the opposite problem of Week 2 gals: You may feel more empathetic than you usually do during other times of your cycle, leading you to offer to help a fired co-worker find a new job, lend an ear to a friend who just got dumped or write a comment on TMZ.com about why Lindsay Lohan got totally railroaded and is getting pushed around because of her celebrity status. Why the extra dose of heart? Rising progesterone is bringing out your nurturing side and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone make you less emotionally detached.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Today might be a big, fat “Ugh!” if you have allergies, asthma, acne, arthritis, migraines or other chronic conditions. That’s because plunging estrogen is threatening to trigger a big, fat flare-up. One way to cope: Medicate pre-emptively if your doc allows it or have medication nearby to combat it as soon as possible.
