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: A fantastic thing happens today: You look prettier! Why? Rising estrogen helps your body shed excess fluid that had you feeling as bloated as a puffer fish during the second half of your cycle. Plus, this hormone is making your skin subtley moister, making your facial features slightly more symmetrical and prompting you to smile more, which adds beauty to anyone’s face.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’re more willing to overlook the faults of your current sweetie or the hottie you’re interested in. The reason? As estrogen rises, it boosts feel-good brain chemicals that help you focus on what’s right about the object of your affection and minimize what’s wrong.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may be turning the radio down a notch, wishing a colleague wasn’t so chatty and choosing muted colors to wear over bright ones today as rising progesterone mellows you out and has you preferring calmness over Week 2 kind of excitement.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Plunging estrogen makes you more sensitive to aromas and noise. So, even scents and music you usually enjoy during other weeks of your cycle can end up annoying you. To keep your mood from getting ruined, stick to mellow scents, or none at all, and be ready to change the radio or iPod quickly if the music starts to grate your nerves.
