Do men have "periods" ??? : LUSENET : live sweet shrimp : One Thread

OK, for some strange reason I was thinking about this a year ago, and exactly a year later I thought about it again. So now I'm wondering, be it physical or emotional, do/can men experience anything approximating the highs and lows of the female, um, monthly cycle? As for me, I'm gonna start keeping a personal calendar of my physical/mental states...

I think men have mood cycles. Biorythms? I dunno.

A friend says that men have mood cycles, only they're totally unpredictable, unlike womens', which makes them more of a problem.

Unpredicable, yes. More of a problem? I dunno. We certainly don't have the, um, messiness aspect of it...

Yes, men have monthly testosterone cycles that predict changes in mood and temperment. I don't know if there are any physical changes, such as your beard growing more quickly or something of that nature... - rachel

My friend meant they were more of a problem for other people - she was thinking of stuff like starting wars...

oops, lizzie, i misread that. just like a man. must be that time of the month or something. wait, what am i saying?

rachel, is there any chance monthy cycles can accelerate hair growth on a man's head? just wondering...
