Women’s Views on Women Who Are Ovulating

Participants in a study of the effects of ovulation were shown these two photos and asked which woman would be more likely to entice a dating partner.

Several studies suggest that men find women more attractive when they are in the ovulatory phase of their menstrual cycle.

The thesis takes a strange turn in a new study in which women were questioned: Each subject was asked whether a woman in an image was likely to entice a man that she was dating.

Although women do not find images of ovulatory women particularly attractive, scientists found, women with higher estrogen levels did perceive such images to be more threatening.

Women with high estrogen, the researchers noted, have a high potential for fertility. “We’re still trying to pinpoint exactly what all is involved in this,” said Janek S. Lobmaier, a psychologist at the University of Bern.
