Once a month, women of reproductive age ovulate. While the egg cell leaves the ovary, hormones “strike” into the head. Familiar? But excessive emotionality is not the only symptom of ovulation.
Hormones affect not only the reproductive organs, but also thinking, behavior, and even appearance. We chose the most unusual symptoms of ovulation.
LIGHT RUMYANETS ON THE FACE
According to a study published in the journal PLoS One, the face of a woman in the days before ovulation is covered with a light blush. This is due to the fact that hormones affect the blood flow throughout the body. “Due to the increased level of estrogen during ovulation, blood vessels may expand. If this happens close to the skin, the face may turn a little red, ”says Dr. Gnatiuk.
The authors of the study believe that this may be noticeable to men. Therefore, women who have ovulation, they seem to be more attractive. But, on the other hand, it is unlikely. The blush on the face is so subtle that it cannot be seen with the naked eye.

INCREASED LIBIDO AND UNUSUAL ITS EXPRESSIONS
The libido of a woman rises at the time when there is the greatest chance of becoming pregnant. During ovulation, women not only consciously think more about sex, but even come up with more sophisticated ways to get what they want. Consumer Research magazine published an interesting study. It states that during ovulation, women may unknowingly buy and wear more sexy underwear.
During ovulation, women not only consciously think more about sex, but even come up with more sophisticated ways to get what they want.
Women think more about sex in the first half of the menstrual cycle when the body prepares for ovulation. Libido drops in the second half - before menstruation. And even these days women perceive art in different ways - before and during ovulation, they can interpret abstract painting more erotically.
“Libido is not completely dependent on hormones. If this were so, the question in sex would be only one - “when”, and not “with whom” and “where,” says Dr. Gnatiuk. But, of course, hung estrogen and testosterone levels increase a woman’s sexual desire.

ATTENTION TO MALE GUYS
During the ovulation period, women are more attracted to certain types of men - with traditional male features. Dr. Gnatyuk explains this by the fact that during ovulation, women subconsciously look for traits that are associated with good health. Including, and with a sufficient level of testosterone, which suggests that a man is able to produce and protect offspring.
In 2011, a study was published in the journal Psychological Science, which suggested that during this period women better distinguish the sexual orientation of men. This is logical, because it makes no sense to spend time on a man who is potentially not interested in a woman.

HANDLING AND OTHER SENSES
During ovulation, women better capture the musky scent and male pheromones. But this does not apply to women who take oral contraceptives that prevent ovulation. Another study says that women generally have an increased sense of smell and other feelings during ovulation. They can even detect potential danger to themselves and future offspring.

REFUSAL TO TALK TO RELATIVES OF THE MALE FLOOR
According to a study by the University of California, during this period women avoid contact with their fathers even by telephone. This is perhaps one of the strangest "side effects" of ovulation. It has historical roots. Previously, this symptom protected a woman from sexual relations with relatives. But Dr. Gnatyuk claims that this behavior is due to prohibitions on the part of the father. Indeed, at a young age, parents often warned girls against contact with men. And during ovulation, such contacts are physiologically necessary for a woman. Therefore, it subconsciously protected from the prohibitions.
