dd and I on the same period schedule for a long time, wives tale or fact?

we have had our periods a day apart for over a year. Is it true what they say about women living under the same roof get their periods around the same time? And if so,,,why?

  • Fact! I don't know why but, I have three sisters and we and our Mom were around the same time on our period. It just happens, even with roommates! Weird, but true!

  • I don't know why it happens but it does! My DD and I were about 4 days to a week apart. I also worked in an office with all women and about 2 weeks out of the month everyone was either about to be or on or just getting over their peroid.

  • thanks ladies, I asked this b/c I had the first booster meeting of the school yr tonight, and dd came along to help with teachers kids. We met up at a park and the meeting went on for close to three hours. When dd and I finally met up and got back in the car, the first thing she said was, "omg I have such bad cramps", I felt exactly the same way,,,lol,,,,we hadnt even talked about it before the meeting, but by the end we where both toast. I find it interesting and wanted your views,
