sooo... I have some interesting facts about menstruation. :p

1. It’s a biological fact that menstruating makes you less attractive to men.

A man’s testosterone levels are directly affected by a woman’s scent, which changes during a menstrual cycle. One study where men sniffed the T-shirts of women who were ovulating showed the men’s testosterone levels spike, while testosterone decreased when they sniffed T-shirts of women who weren’t ovulating. Another study showed that strippers make twice as much in tips when they’re ovulating than when they’re on their period.

2. Menstrual symptoms lead to 100 million lost work hours in America yearly.

3. You may think more like a male while you’re menstruating.

Lowered estrogen levels during menstruation may actually enhance a woman’s “male cognitive skills,” lending a temporary cognitive advantage in areas such as spatial thinking.

and this one is a little weird - I've never experienced this ( and i'm sorry for those who have )

4. While menstruating, you may bleed from other places.

In a very rare medical condition known as “vicarious menstruation,” women on their period may also harmlessly bleed from their mouth, ears, lungs, nose, eyes, and skin.

Interesting, is it not?

Great info. Thanks

Number 3 is so accurate

not sure about the first one

Oh yeah, because you know better than researchers who have actually studied what happens.

kind of know personally. but yeah cant trust everything. things change. not all scientific things are accurate. you should always question. if you dont things will never get corrected or changed. thats one thing you should learn about science.

some men I know love the tabooness of it.

It's quite interesting.
Thank you for sharing this.

Odd... I always felt like men seem more attracted to me when I'm on my period....I know I'm more attracted to them for sure

well, it is also biologically proven that women get hornier on their periods as well.

Thanks for sharing. It is very interesting.
