5 Amazing Things That Happen EVERY TIME Women Ovulate

Ever wondered what the tell-tale signs were that a woman was on her period/ovulating?

Wonder no more! We have the six things to look out for:

1. We Are More Attractive To Partners

Okay, so this one's a little weird. Apparently, on a subliminal level, men and women can actually detect ovulating women, and find them more attractive, in scent, sound and looks.

Which, we guess makes sense on an evolutionary level - but really?

We also groom ourselves more when we're feeling fertile, according to a 2006 study.

Women will spend more time picking outfits and we'll care a little bit more about how we present ourselves.

Apparently, it's called ornamentation.

2. We Blush Way More

According to a study released in Science, women blush more during ovulation, but not enough to be able to tell with the naked eye.

What's the point of that?

3. Dogs Sniff Us More

So we know that dogs have an incredible sense of smell, so it makes sense that they would know when a lady is ovulating!

Apparently dogs can also sniff out ovarian cancer at ridiculously early stages, so we guess we aren't surprised!

4. Our partners get more possessive...

Have men ever really gotten past their cave man days? In most ways they have but they still have an innate protective instinct over their partners.

Especially during ovulation, where they want to keep us because they know we're putting out the "we want a baby" signals...

5. Our Sense Of Smell Is Better

We're not really sure why this happens, but a 2013 study proved women have a sharper sense of smell while ovulating.

Why though? The study didn't come to a firm conclusion, but maybe it's so women can make a better judgement on a prospective mate?
