Monthly hormone fluctuations can make you feel blue or blissful, pooped or energized, indifferent to sex or voraciously horny. But if you anticipate these changes, you can max out the good times. Here, your cycle from day 1 to 28. Plus, strategies that keep you not your hormones in the driver's seat.
Days 1 Through 7
It's a BAD WEEK for YOUR BODY
Your menstrual period kicks off on day one, bringing with it some temporary glitches, like diarrhea (brought on by increased levels of prostaglandin, a chemical that stimulates the intestines). You may also notice worsened asthma, and migraines may be exacerbated.
It's a GOOD WEEK for YOUR BRAIN
As you near day six, you will be entering the follicular phase. It's a peaceful time as an egg matures and gets ready to be released by an ovary. It's a fab moment for tasks that will require creative concentration, like working up a killer proposal or giving a presentation.
Low estrogen levels now mean less natural lubrication. Ask your partner for some extra foreplay or keep a bottle of lubricant (like K-Y Ultragel) handy, at your bedside.
