Shhh! Do You Know These Period Facts?

Posted By:

When you hear the word "period/menses", the first reaction would be quite not so pleasing one. For few of the ladies, it is a happy time but generally most of them crib and suffer a lot from it.

Men tend to be curious to know about what happens during periods. At the same time, they maintain a safe distance from their lady. To break the ice, one of the studies has revealed that when women are on their periods, they tend to turn like men, as the testosterone level is up. However, this does not mean that you act like men typically.

From losing weight to having mood swings and acting cranky, these characteristics are a part of the menstrual cycle. Generally, as the facts are not discussed openly, there is a confusion as to why women still do not know about their body cycle.

There are some more interesting facts that you need to know about periods, so read on as we are here to share some of the fascinating and lesser known facts about your period.

Gone are the days when girls menstruated in their teens. These days, most of the girls get their periods around the age of 12. This monthly cycle goes on up to the age of 50.


Period Can Change Your Voice

A study has revealed that men can recognise the voice of a menstruating woman when they hear her audio. It is said that a woman's voice is more menacing than normal.
