Psychologists have found that up to 10 days before a woman has her period she will go out on a shopping spree and spend, spend and spend. They believe that this can be a way for premenstrual women to deal with the negative emotions caused by their hormonal changes. This should come as a warning to men everywhere especially as the credit crunch bites!
New research will be presented to the British Psychological Society meeting in Brighton later this week. It will show that almost two thirds of the women interviewed were found to be in the later stages of their menstrual cycle. Many were found to have overspent by £25 and a minority spent over £250, mainly on clothes. It was important to note that many of them felt no shame or remorse and yet at the time when they came on, they were full of remorse! Women are like werewolves at the wrong time of the month and should be avoided at all costs.
Credit cards should be kept out of their reach at all times during that period, scientists warn.
It is apparent that girls like to buy extravagant clothes and accessories, including high heels and lots of bling. Psychologists say they like to dress to impress in their fertile days.
Speaking of which, if a girl misses her period , she can spend equally vast amounts of money buying baby clothes. Either way, the man loses! It is only when they become older, that the man becomes richer.
In her new book, "Sheconomics", Professor Karen Pine advises women not go shopping during this time - spend the time (and money) on your partner - because you're worth it!
