One of the most fascinating characteristics of the female body is pregnancy. But the fact that women develop another human being within them is not the only thing that makes them so incredible. If you look more closely at the female organism, you can find many other interesting facts that women themselves do not even know.
Craft Side has collected 10 points that show that the female body is full of strange and wonderful surprises.
Women do distinguish colors better than men
Women see more shadows than men because color perception is connected to the X chromosome. Men have an X chromosome while women have 2.
One breast is always larger than the other.
No woman has absolutely symmetrical breasts. The difference in size may be invisible or quite noticeable, and there may be several reasons for this. For example, there may be a difference in the volume of breast tissue, the size or shape of the bag, or even the elasticity of the skin of each breast. However, there is nothing to worry about, as it is a natural and normal occurrence.
A woman’s body changes dramatically during childbirth.
Giving birth to a child is a very difficult job; Any woman can confirm it. In addition to feeling terrible pain, a woman’s body usually goes through many different changes. One is dilation of the cervix.
During childbirth, the cervix changes from a tightly closed entrance to a completely open exit for the baby. To be ready to push a child, you need to fully expand to 10 cm, which is really the size of a roll. But these 10 cm represent only the pressure point: the cervix can continue to expand to accommodate the baby’s head.
Women can deal better with pain.
Women feel more pain than men; This is a well-known fact. But it’s not about how strong they are, but how their brains work.
Some studies show that women and men remember their past pains differently. While men are more stressed and hypersensitive when they think of the pain they experienced before, women tend to forget it faster. And in general, the pain threshold in women is 9 times stronger than in men.
Women are very good with words.
When it comes to expressing oneself, nobody compares to women. It turns out that there is even an anatomical explanation for this phenomenon: women have larger frontal and temporal areas of the cortex, a region of the brain that is believed to influence language skills.
Women also have higher levels of FOXP2, also known as “language protein.” This large amount of protein helps an average woman speak about 20,000 words a day, 13,000 words more than the average man speaks.
Women have greater muscular endurance.
Some studies show that women can do resistance-related exercises about 75% more than men. The reason is hidden in their hormones: estrogen in women is believed to make their muscles more resistant to fatigue.
Women skin is very sensitive.
Normally, women’s skin is 25% thinner than men’s, which makes it much more sensitive to touch and other types of stimuli. Unfortunately, this feature also has a drawback. Too sensitive skin makes women more likely to develop lines and wrinkles as they lose collagen with aging.
A woman’s mood depends on her hormones.
Most women know all about the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. However, not all women realize that their body is affected by its cycle every day of the month. As hormonal levels constantly change in your brain and body, your perspectives, energy levels, and sensitivity also change.
For example, women tend to feel more irritated about 10 days after the start of the period and immediately before ovulation. During these days, they try to dress sexier to look more attractive to potential couples. A week later, when progesterone levels rise, women tend to stay home with a cup of hot tea and snuggle in bed with their loved ones.
The following week, they often feel teary and easily irritated. And, of course, your mood changes to the worst point 12 to 24 hours before the period begins.
Women go through adolescence twice
The second period of adolescence for women, or perimenopause, occurs in its 40 years. It is usually characterized by irregular periods, night sweats and other not-so-pleasant things caused by changes in hormonal levels. A woman’s hormones during this transition can be so crazy that she can even behave in a bad mood in adolescence.
Women are experts in reading faces.
From the moment they are born, women have the ability to read people’s faces, perfectly decoding their emotions and feelings. This helps them empathize with others and communicate better with them. In addition, some studies show that women have a perfect memory of facial features.
