Can a man sense when a woman is ovulating?

    Is it true? I’ve heard we’re “animals” and especially males can detect if you’re ovulating, like a natural reaction to procreate and preserve the humankind. In my case, I actually do not notice anything with my boyfriend, we’re always like very stable (during the whole month, even on my period), but maybe there are slight signs that I don’t even notice. So, is it true that attraction during ovulation occurs?

  2. Dear Hearted Girl,

    Yes, it is true. In fact, a man can smell when a woman is ovulating thanks to something called “female pheromones”, in combination with the role of testosterone. Olfactory clues from women who are on their ovulatory phase (i.e. their most fertile time) can make men more willing to have intercourse with them.

    Various studies have confirmed that smells affect hormones, and subsequently the mating habits of animals, as odors emitted by females increase the testosterone levels of males, particularly during ovulation.

    I hope this helps,

    Best wishes
