My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: You’re more likely to take things in stride and go with the flow if plans change today. Folks who ask for a different appointment time, restaurant or activity can thank your rising estrogen for your a-okayness with the switcheroo. As this hormone climbs, it boosts feel-good brain chemicals that help you overcome unexpected snags and rebound quickly.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Today’s a day for breaking rules and defying convention. High estrogen and testosterone are making you bold, fearless and independent, a combination that has you easily bored with the same-old same-old and questioning why things have been done a certain way for ages without anyone actually realizing that it can be done a better way: Your way!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: People who got used to making you laugh for the past two weeks are going to start to worry that they’ve broken their funny bone when they’re around you. The reason? During Week 1 and Week 2, you were all guffaws as estrogen rose since this hormone boosted laugh-triggering endorphins. But, in Week 3, not only does estrogen dip to a lower level, making the giggles farther and fewer between, rising progesterone is also on the scene, making you seem more serious and sober.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may wonder why everyone’s giving rave reviews to a restaurant, dance club or other spot when you find it just barely adequate. The reason for the difference in opinion? Plunging estrogen and testosterone are making negative aspects stand out more prominently. So, while restaurant reviewers may say a certain dish is divine, all you focus on is the dirty tablecloths and while friends may say a certain dance club is full of hotties, all you see are losers who dance like someone’s shooting at their feet.
