On 5 September 2016, Dr Alexandra Alvergne was interviewed on the BBC World Service programme More or Less about Menstrual Syncing.
'It is a commonly held belief that if women spend enough time together, their bodies start to communicate through chemical signals, known as pheromones. Eventually the women’s bodies will start to menstruate at the same time.
But where does this idea come from? And is it really true? We look at the evidence and wonder – could it be down to chance?'
