Menstrual synchrony

 

rica cruz - sexy mind answers

Hello Ma’am Rica,

Totoo bang kapag magka-kasama ‘yung mga babae living together, nagkaka-sabay-sabay din ‘yung mga period nila? Nag-iisip kasi akong mag-dorm kesa uwian pero parang hindi ko kaya na lahat kami masungit. Sanay kasi ako sa bahay naming dahil ako lang ang girl and my mom is working elsewhere. So kapag medyo bratty ako kapag meron ako, my brother and dad will adjust for me. Haha.

Thank you,

UnicaHija

 

Hi UnicaHija,

Nakakatuwa ang iyong pag-acknowledge ng kasungitan mo when you have your period and hindi lang ikaw ang uncomfort­able na may kasabay having your period dahil especially in a dorm setting, medyo kailangan mong makisama and of course, ‘yung thought na lahat kayo masungit is just not something you want to go through every month for the school year.

That being said, madami nang debates regarding menstrual synchrony. Meron kasing research in 1971 na ‘yung mga menstrual cycles ay nagsi-synchronize sa isang residence hall.

Dulot daw ito sa pheromones ng isang babae. Pero ‘yung mga sumunod na mga researches ay hindi na ma-replicate ang results na ‘to. Mas likely siguro that be­cause all of you are undergoing the same stresses in school and living conditions, kaya nagkakaroon ng adjustment sa period ng women in the same living setting.

If you want to be in a dorm and have control over your menstrual cycle, baka mas effective if you use birth control pills. This will help alter the levels of progesterone and estrogen in the body.

Mahirap kasi ma-pinpoint cur­rently kung paano talaga magsi-synch ang period ng dalawang tao. You can read up on researches or you can actually start your own investigation if you decide to live in a dorm. Keep me posted, always enjoy and be safe.

With Love and Lust,

Rica
