For Ladies: Your Cycle and the Moon

MeliPixie MeliPixie
In ancient times, before the bustle of the city or extensive travel in a short time, our bodies were in tune with Nature in a way I feel most of us will never be. The seasons were important for reasons other than opening and closing the pool, grumbling while shoveling snow, and selling Christmas decor on Halloween. We worshipped the divine male and female in everything we did, everything we saw, everything we experienced.

Long ago, a woman's body was governed by the Moon. She ovulated when the Moon was full, and menstruated when it went dark. It was in this way that procreation was made easy: our bodies even to this day can often be turned on by the sight of the full Moon, and more babies are born at this part of her cycle as well.

My question for you ladies is this: Have you noticed any kind of correlation between your cycle and the Moon's?

The last day of my period is the full moon. I started the pill a year after my first period (fifteen years ago) and have only been off of it a handful of times.

From what I remember, it did always start at night and ect. but after I started the pill, the pill kinda dictates my period.

My last period started four days after the last full moon, not sure if that counts or not, since the moon was still pretty round three days after its full phase.

I don't know about our cycles and the moon, but I've realized that if a few women work or spend a lot of time together every day, they'll affect each others cycles. The pattern of their periods will be very similar to each others'.

Yes and no. It depends on how many of those women are using hormonal contraception. But, the really neat thing about that fun fact is that it centers around the dominant or alpha-female in the group.

I hadn't really noticed the moon making much difference, though I wish it could be that predictable. As Rossie and Sapphire Storm mentioned, it seems like I'm more influenced by the women with whom I live or work, especially if we're talking about a group of women. I'd never heard the alpha-female theory though; that's pretty interesting.

Mine doesn't really correlate with the lunar cycle. My cycle is about 32-33 days long as opposed to the lunar cycle which is 28 days long. So maybe one month it might fall under a full moon, but it wouldn't every month.

Ha, that's interesting. So when the alpha-female starts her period, the others will follow suit?

Another thing, women in the same group tends to get pregnant within close range also.

I've been on the pill for about 4 years. Before that my cycle was really irregular and didn't seem to have any sort of pattern to it. I probably wouldn't notice even if it had though.

No idea! never paid attention.

My period always starts within 1 day of the full moon. My contraception is non-hormonal, and my body's pretty much been right on with the full moon ever since I started menstruating.

And when I've been in close groups with females (>3 classes together, or office mates or whatever) the other females will follow my pattern. I always am surprised at that because I'm definitely not a dominant female

I have never really noticed for my cycle but my dreams do get some what more vivid.

I will be checking though, now that I have read this!

I've never taken any notice of what the moon is doing compared to my cycle.

I've never really paid attention to it, but I would guess no. Like Taylor, my cycle is 32-34 days.

Mine coincides with the last quarter of the moon more than anything. I keep track but had to check it against the lunar cycle. It's almost always on a Friday night when I get it, grrr! It's really short though and gone by Monday.

My best girl friends and I are always within 48 hours of each other. I find that amazing.

Well I am menstruating right now and current moon is waning crescent. Although I am on birth control so I think I do not count.

Same here.
I never noticed a correlation with the moon before, but I will have to pay attention to it this month.

Yeah, same with me. I'm going to watch the moon cycle next month and see where we start. Interesting.

I'm not in tune with the moon at all, unfortunately.

I never really payed much attention, but mine was always very irregular; now I'm on a 28 day-cycle birth control so it is in sync with the lunar cycles, just not naturally!

On and off the pill my cycle likes to follow the moon. It's somewhat annoying because I usually start at like 2am in the morning. I've never not started at night.

Ok, so I follow the moon, start with the new moon. Very interesting.

my cycle has always been able to be timed by the moon's cycle, but, I start with the full moon, rather I start cramping with the full moon, then the next day when the moon begins to wane I start bleeding.

The most common time for a woman to start her period is 4 am

OMG, I get my period on/near the day of the full moon! Crazy!

This is really interesting. I'd never heard of a woman's cycle matching the moons. I'm going to start paying attention and see what happens

Mine seems to always start at night and its every 21 days exactly. The 21 day thing has only happened this past year, before that, it was all erratic and happened whenever it wanted to.

I don't think you should be on this website if you haven't started menstruating yet... with exceptions, of course.
