    My wife gets teh pms, but hers manifests itself in anxiety. I tend to be hungrier than usual during that week too.

    Yup, men have PMS. Although for them it's called IMS (irritable male syndrome).

    Men do go through andropause, but men also have cycles. They're daily, rather than monthly like for women. Testosterone levels are highest in the morning and gradually fall through the day.

    And like for women, symptoms may vary even within the same person. My PMS symptoms aren't always the same. Some months are worse than others.

    Mega, you may be having sympathetic symptoms with your wife. There is no monthly cycle that I'm aware of for men, but that's a pretty common phenomena between partners who live together.

    What really blew my mind, though, was when I had a partner who could tell exactly where I was in my cycle by how I smelled. What made this impressive is that once every few months, I'll skip a week or two randomly - like my cycle is re-setting itself. So it wasn't a matter of him just memorizing how long my cycles are. Even when it would "reset" he would be able to tell before I would. It was really strange.

    Sometimes however I catch myself being a complete bitch for no reason. I usually attribute it to my man period.

    Women periods I am sure is a main reason women have more time awareness than men.
    Biorhythms! Thank you. I couldn't come up with that word with two dictionaries and Google access. Derp.

    Well, I certainly cry every time I sit down to pay the monthly bills.

    I know where my wife is by the way she tastes. So I can see where that is possible.

    Why? I don't see anything smackish about this thread. It's actually a fairly interesting topic from a biological standpoint.

    The simple fact is, that a woman's hormones do affect the composition of her fluids.

    The Sex & Sexuality forum is likely a better fit. I just put all polls in polls, and then mods move them as they see fit. I've only had one moved, and that was the abortion billboard thread.
