You realize that your desperate need for companionship and the cycle sync are unrelated, right? Women who work or live in close proximity often experience synced menstrual periods. So, you're not special. Sorry.

You deserve it for being stupid, lmao. If you work with other females the sync is bound to happen.

I think what 45 tried to say wasn't that she's stupid for working with women but rather that she's stupid because she thinks her loneliness is the cause of the sync. He meant that it always happens when you work with other women so she's stupid to expect otherwise

2. It can go a little something like this:

'hey girl sorry to bug you and its a little embarrassing,but you don't happen to have a pad or tampon do you? I just started my period and I'm not prepared'

Other girl: 'yea of course, I just got my period too.. Omg SISTERS!'..

Or maybe not, but most likely.

This is essentially what happened to me and a co worker. ? We were talking and complaining about cramps and realized we started and ending the same days.

They aren't related, but the fact that OP synced with someone in a cubicle next to her implies that she doesn't spend much time with female friends outside of work (I understand that if she works long hours then she doesn't have the time to). So in a way the FML is implying that she doesn't hang out with friends.

3, you saved me the trouble of explaining...thank you!! :-)

14- from my understanding, for periods to sync you have to spend A LOT of time with each other, which is why households sync but I'm not synced with my friends. So while OP might not get out a lot, the syncing doesn't necessarily mean she's lonely.

I've read articles explaining the whole cycle syncing thing is a myth. Most women are not completely regular and, even if they are, months are not. Eventually you could be in line then in a few months, you'll be out of sync again.

Ugh thank you! OP is an idiot.

Pretty sure that is not true. My Mom is in the late stages of menopause and gets a migraine every time I'm on my period on the first day. This used to be one of her symptoms when she had her period. Why would she be getting them on that particular day and no other ones unless there was some hormonal synching going on.

And yet when I mentioned on an older FML about women who live together sometimes having their periods in sync I got massively thumbed down and many sarcastic replies about how the female body isn't a machine. Go figure!

I love people who try to sound smart on FML but use the words in the wrong context and end up sounding ignorant.

3- Thanks for making OP feel worse than she already was feeling. Asshole.

  MiloBear  |  11

OP didn't necessarily sync with her co-worker because of spending so much time together. Their cycles could just happen to co-incide for a few months. If you have a seven day period there's about a 25% chance that some of your days will match up with a friend's.

By  DocBastard  |  38

Or it's just possible that it's completely normal for women who live or work together to become synced.

Nah, who am I kidding! You've been so lonely for so long, you're lucky your uterus hasn't abandoned ship.


Hey 6 it isn't that far off. I went to the same school with the same people for 8 years and in 8th grade these girls discovered that most of us were on our periods at the same time.

Biological calendars can sync up


No I'm not new here. To be quite honest, I posted that comment at about 11 o clock last night. It seemed like a good idea to my sleep deprived self. But now that I read it, I'm just like 'what?' so by all means, ignore my comment, thumb it down, whatever :)

Well, you work what, 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week, right? Actually makes perfect sense. Doesn't mean ur desperate for companionship, just mother nature working her lovely "magic".


Unfortunately, I couldn't find the word tampoon in the dictionary, so I made up my own definition for it.

Tampoon- A harpoon like contraption that shoots tampons in the vagina in the same fashion in which a harpoon would.
