Do menstrual cycles sync? Unlikely, finds Clue data

Interesting! “Syncing” of mentrual cycles could very much be down to us remembering instances of confirmation. I mean, we are more likely to remember the times we “synced” rather than not – all women can likely point to a recent time when a colleague or friend exclaimed, “oh, I’m also on my period!” than a time when someone said, “oh you’re on your period? I’m not.” And I’d be interested to see a calculation of what the statistical chances are where women just coincide (based purely on chance alone). The psychologist and statistical nerd in me is overly excited with this! Thanks for a great lunch break read :)
