  • That's happened everywhere I've worked; all of us would end up cycling around the same time. It's (ancient) nature; back when there were a limited amount of males, it made sense to have everyone fertile at the same time - when the men came in from hunting the women would be ready to conceive.

  • I'm not sure what causes that but the whole time I was growing up in my parents' house I was on the same schedule as my mom. When I moved out I no longer was. I also had the same cycle as my 2 closest friends in hs.
