Period Sync 👯♀️
FACT OR MYTH? 🤔
Ever hung out with a friend for quite some time and discover you're both on your period? #FriendshipGoals 👯♀️
This is actually called the McClintock Effect which suggests anything you excrete (e.g. sweat or scent) can influence and synchronize periods of women who hang out together. However, various studies have proven that there is no correlation between proximity with other women and your menstrual cycle. There may be times that it may seem that way but it's purely coincidental.
This belief is a MYTH 🩸 Nothing will stop you from getting through your period with your bestie!
