Dating relationship cycle

Reach out to the hottie you’ve wanted to ask out all month.

During this week, your energy is the lowest it will be in your cycle and you may feel tired, withdrawn and introspective.

You might even be more open to a brief fling during this time. During the first week, you will continue to ride high off the ovulatory phase as estrogen and testosterone gradually decline. The follicle that released the egg will begin to produce progesterone to prepare for a potential pregnancy.

Progesterone is the “chill-out” hormone, like natural Valium, so you will find yourself starting to wind down.

FSH stimulates the follicles (which contain your eggs) in your ovaries to mature.

This causes estrogen and testosterone to rise which brings a boost to your energy, mood and brain skills.

When you honor your body’s innate need for rest and relaxation during this phase, you will enhance your ability to get more out of the active phases of your cycle.
