What is your book about?

Super Week explore the seven very specific days leading up to ovulation – including all the incredible things that happen in the minds and bodies of women during that week. Women change physically, mentally, and psychologically almost from day to day. Guaranteed from week to week. And very predictably from month to month. Due to our 28-day cycle, we basically morph between being four different versions of ourselves four weeks every month. And the best one; I have named “Super Week” – the week before ovulation.

The effects of ovulation are almost endless. They give us more confidence, sexual drive, creativity, and joy. We become more empathetic, communicate better, suddenly run faster on the treadmill, and are not as easily stressed. All proven by new scientific research. But are women around the world aware of their “Super Weeks”? Probably not. Do they understand that ovulation can be used to create life in thousands of other ways than making a baby? You tell me.

What sets your book apart from other books in the same genre?

This is not just another cycle book. It is not about pain or shame – but look to what the positive, more unknown side can do for us, once we know it exists. There are already some very inspiring non-fiction books out there that deal with menstruation and the cycle, although most of them covers the entire period and don´t deep dive into this one particular subject. Not all of them are based on new and concrete science.

In Super Week, you’ll meet many voices and learn a cascade of new things. From how to track your cycle, find Super Week, hear about magical mucus and the fascinating journey of the egg. But most importantly – understand how your Super Week can improve your mental health, career, dating life, and workouts. To help shed light on one of humanity’s greatest mysteries, I interviewed world leading researchers from the USA, England, Poland, Canada, Sweden, and New Zealand. Oh, and yeah: I also share quite unabashedly my own slightly cheeky, personal experiences from sex parties, love life, and work situations where I most likely… was in my Super Week.
