Lucid Dreams & Periods

Postby TheLAWvirus » 14 Sep 2016 19:10

Ok hear me out first.
I know exactly how this is going to sound and trust me this is as awkward to write as it's going to be to read but I'm genuinely confused and amazed by this.

So far I have only had 2 lucid dreams that I can recall, but this is the really strange thing. Every time I have had a lucid dream it has always been on the first day of my period. (I know I'm sorry but I've got to ask because this is really strange). Both this month and last month I've had a lucid dream which has been exactly 1 month and 1 day apart. It sounds strange and it is strange but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

My best guess is that your periods make you self-conscious, one of the main ingredients for lucid dreaming. Other than that, I've never experienced period-induced lucid dreams. I'm a guy. Sorry. :mrgreen:

Here is an interesting article about the menstrual cycle.
- "9 Things Every Woman Should Know About Menstruation" - huffingtonpost.ca
Info. item # 6 - describes heightened introspection and intuition and greater activity in the right hemisphere of the brain.

Wikipedia has a very detailed article about the monthly shifts in female hormones.
- Article - "Menstrual cycle"
No wonder a woman's moods (and achy belly days) can vary like the phases of the moon.
