Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormone-cast: You’re more likely to put forth suggestions to your family, friends, boss, even fellow shoppers at the grocery store. And it’s not just because rising estrogen is making you chatty and rising testosterone is making you bold. This hormonal duo is also making you think more quickly, so you’re coming up with more ideas, putting together information faster and remembering details that may have been lost to brain fog just a week ago.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormone-cast: You may get frustrated with someone who isn’t pulling their weight today. The reason? High estrogen and testosterone are amping up your energy and focus and you can’t imagine why people can’t work as hard and as diligently as you!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormone-cast: Progesterone is bringing out your nurturing side. As a result, you feel like you’re more in tune with other people’s emotions and can pick up on subtle voice or body language cues that reveal their true feelings.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormone-cast: Woe to the smarmy salesperson, backstabbing coworker or sneaky frenemy who tries to pull one over on you today. Plunging estrogen and testosterone make you a bit more suspicious of people and their intentions, so you’re less likely to be duped or fall prey to a scam.
