Anyone else in synch with a woman's period?

    I don't think I'm losing my mind (that happened long ago) but I believe that I am getting emotionally in synch with my feminine roommate's monthly cycle. It's not physical, it's mental and it's driving me nuts. I wanna know if any of you are familiar with this phenom, and how you deal with it. Do I need a testoterone boost? Maybe I just need to get nailed. icon_twisted.gif

    Maybe it's because you live in San Francisco...

    Women produce strong pheromones during their periods, that are subconsciously detectable by both men & women. Studies have shown that women who live together for a while, such as in college dorms, tend to involuntarily synchronize their periods to all occur at the same time. Pheromones are thought to be the signal that prompts this outcome.

    I'm not aware of any studies linking male behavior changes to female menstrual pheromone production. It wouldn't be inconceivable, however, and you might be a good subject for a case study.

    At the same time, I wonder if there's a psychological component. How do you know when she's having her period? Does she tell you? Or do you deduce it from a change in her behavior, perhaps exhibiting some PMS?

    Some men do experience a false pregnancy phenomenon, getting morning sickness and labor pains, when their wives are expecting. Perhaps a similar thing can happen when around a woman known to be menstruating. Curious. I agree with GQ -- keep some tampons handy.

    Something I noticed while living with my mom and sister was that I'd have acne breakouts when they were having their periods. After I moved out the problem seemed to go away after a few months.

    Actually, I feel it all around me. My neighors, the cleaning lady, women in traffic, women at work. I'm going out of my mind! Periods, periods, everywhere!!!

    I just love that you said "my feminine roommate's..." Lmao. For some reason that was just funny to me. Sorry to hear about your synchronization with the leaky red faucet! Good luck with that!

    Haha you laugh, but men go through a monthly period where their brain chemicals change (recycle/rejuvinate/whatever). So combined with what Red_Vespa said, I could see it as a possibility.

    Yeah. I've had female managers before.
    There was a certain feel to the rush of crazy memos and stupid decisions for a few days every month. Everyone just sort of tacitly ignored them and revisited any important questions two weeks later.

    Men do have cycles. I think the more in touch you are with your body the more you are aware of this cycle.

    Me and my best friend used to live together. I could tell her to the hour when she was gonna pull out that tampon.
