@all the previous posts: yes mood swings are some of the signs. Sometimes I can also tell, about some of my  friends,  because they become slightly lovey dovey and look slightly tired.


@ bold
Reallly.....LOL
Well not in my case!
tired...Yes!Ouch
 
Yah, some of my friends take time off and some who come, look so lost they I can tell pretty easily. In my case, I feel very very tired half a day before it is coming n I know its time but once it comes, I am my usual self.

In XX century was discover the phenomenon where in the menstrual cycles of women living in close quarters tend to synchronize. This phenomenon has been observed in women living together. It has been found in room-mates, close friends, lesbian couples and most strongly between mothers and daughters. It has also been noted in mice, hamsters and rats. It as suggested that Ovulation (process of releasing egg from ovary) is socially regulated and this lead to what is called menstrual synchronicity (McClintock effect).Smile

Synchronized periods known as the McClintock effect, also known as menstrual synchrony or the dormitory effect, is a theory that proposes that the menstrual cycles of women who live together (such as in prisons, convents, bordellos, or dormitories) tend to become synchronized over time.Smile

It is thought to be analogous to the Whitten effect, which is the synchronization of the estrous cycle and has been noted in small animals such as mice and guinea pigs. In contrast to the Whitten effect, which is driven by male pheromones, the McClintock effect is postulated to have only female pheromonal involvement.Tongue

The phenomenon about women synchronized periods was called as the McClintock effect for the author of the first article to discuss the phenomenon, Menstrual Synchrony and Suppression, by Martha McClintock, which appeared in Nature in 1971. It seems she was at a conference where the phenomenon of synchronized ovulation in mice was broached. Ms. McClintock commented that the same thing happened in human females as well, as evidenced in dormitory life. While at first wary of the assertion, the scientists challenged her, as an undergraduate, to address the issue scientifically. McClintock did just that when she pursued the topic for her senior thesis at Wellesley and then published it when she was working on her graduate degree at Harvard.Tongue
This was the first paper to suggest any operation of pheromones in humans. While it did not definitively prove that pheromones were acting causally, it did offer tantalizing evidence. Further research by McClintock and others (Russell et al., 1980; Stern and McClintock, 1988; etc) did prove that it was pheromones causing the synchrony. Other studies have also found influences of male pheromones on women's menstrual cycles as well as evidence of female pheromones effecting men's hair growth.Tongue
