Abstract

Based on the hypothesis that olfactory communication may underlie menstrual synchrony, we examined menstrual synchrony among eight professional basketball teams in the Israeli womens' major basketball league. We investigated whether team synchrony occurred, whether best friends among the teammates synchronized, and whether menstrual-related or social-interaction factors were associated with synchrony. Synchrony was not found among the teams nor among best friends. No meaningful relation was found between synchrony and menstrual-related or social-interaction variables.
