cycle's influences

page updated: 31-Mar-2004

Sleeping with a male partner is supposed to influence female cycles as well, but I'm not sure how. My only crack at this is the observation that my cycles compressed from about 4 1/2 weeks to about 3 when special boy and I got together (if that is the male influence it is really stupid, but I suppose it makes you fertile more often even if it does take you out of commission more often too).

For a long time I have wanted to try to line my cycle up with the moon, so that I would ovulate on the full moon and bleed at the half moon, the way folk lore suggests it used to be. Right now I can't cause of the pills, but sometime when I am free I would like to sleep in a room that gets moonlight at night and see if it warps my cycles to match it.

One last influence of note, is that my ubiquitous friend-- yes the same friend on the morning after pill and reusable menstrual cup and probably other pages, the only friend I've had many vaginal discussions with-- has mentioned that she suffered from skipped periods (amenorrhea) in her teens when she wasn't eating enough. I've never noticed any dietary influences, but I wouldn't say I've ever been malnourished.
