Before ovulation, usually commencing 10 days from the start of menstruation, women tend to be more sexy. "As if to find a partner as the fertile period," said Brizendine. The following week, progesterone increases. The impact of female hormones tranquilizer is so over-leyeh leyeh hooked. "The following week progesterone drop, makes women so easily offended," he said.
