    In the first 1-2 days of your period, your estrogen is low, which leads to fatigue. Also, most women know the hellish cramps these two days bring. This is a good time to exercise a bit. It may ease the cramping!

    At the 3-5 day mark, your period should have ended and your estrogen has kicked back in leading to more energy. Very Rosie The Riveter vibes during this time.

    6-9 days into your cycle, your estrogen is PUMPING. Your face might look more symmetrical and glowy. Testosterone is also kicking into gear, and you're on top of your game. This is a good time to take initiative.

    Your estrogen peaks at the 10-13 day mark. Look at that sexy, fertile binch! Orgasms are more intense and attainable and you're feeling social and optimistic.

    Uh oh. Trouble in the ovaries. It's ovulation time around the 14 day mark. These sudden hormone changes may intensify emotions and make you sleepy.

    At the 19-22 day mark, your estrogen has dropped, but testosterone and progesterone and going strong. This is a good time to eat healthy.

    WELCOME TO BLOAT TOWN! 23-25 days into your cycle your progesterone is surging. You're not feeling your sexiest.
