When speaking in terms of bleeding, bloating,and cramps, the answer is no. Men do not have a period the same way a woman does.
However , if defining a “period” as a time of hormonal change, then yes, men do have periods. This commonly depends on if they have a live in girlfriend or a wife. Even men that have girlfriends for more than a couple of months will have what some may consider a “male Period”.
Mother Nature designed us, humans, that is, to procreate to keep up the population. In able to procreate, she gave humans a chemical substance called hormones, estrogen for women and testosterone for men. When the two collide, sparks will fly.
It all depends on whether the man has a good sense of smell. When menstruating, the woman has a smell the male can detect and it puts men in the sexual mood. It’s the same with animals,they go by the smell of the female to know when they are ready to breed. Humans, unfortunately, are animals…some more than others. The smell of the woman in a man’s life, will send them into a “period” of biochemical changes and hormonal fluctuations, brought on by the woman going into her menstrual cycle.As to whether it’s a good or bad mood depends on the man. If he is stressed out due to work, worry, or other stress factors, he will get into a bad mood at just about the same time the woman in his life begins her menstrual cycle.
If you are a man that does not have a girlfriend or spouse, then you probably won’t suffer through a monthly cycle, but you will react to those women you meet.They will have a smell to them and it’s not perfume.The male’s sweat glands are also known to induce a similar response in women.
So, do men have periods ?
No, but they do have a monthly cycle that is connected to the female.
A man’s testosterone will go up and down about 4 to 5 times a day, while most women’s estrogen stays the same level for 3 to 4 days. As a man, you can track your “male period” by your moods. As the male testosterone level increases due to a woman’s menstrual cycle , his mood will change.It depends on the type of person the male is as to whether he will be happy or sad, angry or irritated, or just laid back.Just a side note: A man’s testosterone level will be higher in the winter than it will be in the spring. This is being studied to see why it happens.
