girls who are with eachother a lot get there periods at the same time?!

so i was telling my friend how it was weird that i got my period early. and she was telling me how if two girls are around each other a lot and use the same bathroom it lets out some kind of hormone that makes both girls periods come at the same time. this is really weird to me but she's going to school for her career in the medical field so i kind of believe it. anyone know if this is true?

  • It's totally true. I don't think you even have to use the same bathroom. I spent all my days after school with two friends when I was a freshman in high school. One day it hit us that we were all on our periods at the same time, which we never had been before. After that, every month at the same time we'd be asking each other for tampons lol.

  • I have heard that before. Especially about women who live in the same house together. But I am not sure if its true or not

  • I've heard this before and it's happened to me twice. I lived with my one girlfriend in college and my period changed with hers. Then after I moved out I moved in with a different friend and my period followed hers...I don't get it. Weird thing is their periods never changed, mine just followed them.

  • Anon :30, they say that the "leader" in this instance is usually the woman with the most dominant personality... are you maybe a little shy and timid... kind of a follower?

  • No Ati I'm definitely not a follower. I dislike followers(guess my period has a different opinion on that) You are right about being shy, though. I'm very introverted and reserved in every aspect of my life.
