Menstrual synchrony is not a thing

Something’s out of sync with this way of thinking.

According to a study done by menstrual cycle tracking app Clue, and the University of Oxford, women’s durations do not magically align like the stars or Olympic swimmers since they spend a lot of time together. Contrary to renouned belief, either they’re siblings, best friends or a mother-daughter pair, women’s bodies do not find a way to menstruate at the same time – ever – regardless of romantic closeness, earthy proximity, sham fights or braiding any others’ hair.

“According to these results, cycles are actually some-more likely to separate (get out of sync) over time,” the study said.

Analyzing the information of 3 months’ worth of cycles in 360 pairs of women showed that 273 duos, over 75 percent of them, had a incomparable disproportion in duration start dates at the finish of the hearing than at the beginning. Only 79 pairs showed the conflicting results, with the opening in their cycle start dates lessening.

The Clue study is the latest to debunk the McClintock Effect, published in 1971, that tried to denote the existence of an “alpha uterus,” (not kidding) with “strong hormonal lift that influences the cycles around it to ovulate and menstruate in unison.” No systematic justification has been found to justify the existence of pronounced mythical, widespread uterus.

The information was collected by Clue and lead researcher Dr. Alexandra Alvergne. “We’d like to continue to do some-more research on this subject and others in the under-researched margin of womanlike health,” the study said.

Maybe having a lady at the helm will lead to some-more scientific-based supposition about the womanlike physique than an angry, dominant uterus.
