Results of a study conducted over five consecutive months in Polish student dormitories provide further evidence that women do not synchronize their menstrual cycles.
A multitude of errors in menstrual-synchrony research: replies to Weller and Weller (2002) and Graham (2002).

In her commentary, C. A. Graham stated that A. Weller and L. weller's later research did not use recall data, but the author of this reply shows that this is not true.

It is shown that cycle variability produces convergences and subsequent divergences of cycle onsets and may explain perceptions of synchrony.
Demystifying Menstrual Synchrony: Women's Subjective Beliefs About Bleeding in Tandem With Other Women
Despite the empirical uncertainty about the existence of menstrual synchrony (i.e., the phenomenon where some women's menstrual cycles synchronize when they live in close proximity with one another),…
Do human menstrual-cycle pheromones exist?
- BiologyHuman nature
Research over the past 15 years indicates, contrary to earlier results, that women do not synchronize their menstrual cycles, and it follows that that there are no pheromones that modulate the length of menstrual cycles.
A preliminary investigation of synchronous pregnancies in women
Abstract Menstrual synchrony is when the menstrual cycles of friends or family members coincide, such that women conform to the same cycle. In this paper, we propose for the existence of synchronous…
