Q: You know Amma it’s strange but the menstrual cycle of my group of friends tends to sync up? It’s very absurd. Is there a concrete cause?

A: Haha. Sometimes you guys come up with such unbelievable ones. Always a pleasure answering them though. No one is sure why women who live together or spend a lot of time in each other’s presence tend to ovulate in tandem.  But it has been observed in clinical studies as well as anecdotally in the real world and is considered a valid phenomenon.

The prevailing theory is that chemicals emitted from our sweat glands called pheromones somehow trigger each woman’s cycle to synchronize. The purpose of this is still a mystery. It may be that back in caveman times, having a group of females be fertile all at once helped propagate the species, since one man could impregnate them very quickly. So there! Lots of trivia I provided, no? Thanks for the question. I had fun answering it.

Q: My boyfriend and I have been having sex for a fairly long time now. The sex is great, no complaints. But it’s odd that after it’s done, he passes out and I lie wide awake. Now, why would that happen? I expect us to have a little talk, if not be all charged up. I’m trying not to get frustrated with this habit of his and your telling me that it’s normal will only help. Please tell me the cause.

A: Dear child, It’s a misconception that sex always leads to peaceful slumber. For some, it has the opposite effect, since lovemaking raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and adrenaline levels. Don’t think I don’t have a solution to this for I do! And it’ll work, trust me. So, to prevent post-sex insomnia, reschedule the action for earlier in the evening. And try not to let him drift off until you’re satisfied. Orgasm can help bring the body down to its normal resting state. So if you’re not climaxing regularly, you need to have a chat with your guy about how the two of you can be more in sync. I feel like all my knowledge is finally being put to relevant use. No no I’m not bragging. Only appreciating the “quality of questions” being sent in lately. Keep it up guys. Clap for yourselves.
