40% of menstruators report feeling more productive at work during ovulation


 Mira, a company that produces fertility trackers, recently conducted a study of 150 women to explore how luteinizing hormones, estrogen, and progesterone impact various aspects of their lives, such as mood, sex drive, and productivity. According to the survey, 46% of participants link changes in mood and physical symptoms to hormones, but a third of the participants admitted to having little knowledge about hormones. Here are some key findings from the study:

Mood: During ovulation, when luteinizing hormone peaks, 58% of menstruators reported feeling happiest, while 18% reported feeling tired, irritable, and sad. However, after ovulation, when progesterone begins to rise, 50% reported feeling tired and irritable.

Sex drive: Before ovulation, when estrogen starts to rise, 32% of participants reported an increase in their sex drive, and nearly half reported increased sex drive during ovulation.

Productivity: 40% of participants felt more productive at work during ovulation, and positive feelings about exercise also peaked around this time.

Sylvia Kang, founder and CEO of Mira, highlighted the importance of understanding how hormones influence productivity for both individuals and employers. She also noted that this understanding can help dispel unfair stereotypes about women being perceived as 'overly emotional' or 'moody', which may hinder their career progression.
