Sometimes women make many assumptions about males and about what they can and cannot do. We wish they realized what is like to feel abdominal pain during periods or breastfeed a baby.
In fact, the male body is very different from a woman's body. This applies to the organization of the brain, hormone system, vision, smell and blood composition. But you should know that some features of the male body may be surprising for you and for your man too. Are you interested?
We would like to show you ten surprising facts you didn't know about the male body. You will be shocked by all these strange and interesting facts about the male body. Scroll down to read them right now!
#1. They can breastfeed
Yes, that is strange but true. Men can produce milk, but it is not enough to feed a real baby.
#2. “Man periods” is a real thing
We aren't joking! Studies show that a quarter of the male population suffers from period-like symptoms once a month. They may feel exhausted, hungry, irritated and even experience slight cramps.
#3. Dads experience hormonal changes too
Women's bodies produce a huge amount of oxytocin, which can help them create a strong connection with their little baby. Studies show that men's bodies produce the same hormone that can help them build a strong connection with their baby and become a wonderful father.
#4. Male body can produce estrogen
Although estrogen is the female hormone, it can be produced by the male body. You should know that the lack of estrogen in men's bodies can lead to health problems such as childlessness, breast tissue growths, nervous disorders and diabetes.
#5. All men were once women
According to science, all men were once female, well, for the first six weeks when they were embryos.
#6. They have thicker skin than women
Men's skin is about twenty-five percent thicker than that of a woman.
#7. They have bigger feet
You may have noticed that most men have bigger feet. In fact, women have smaller feet, smaller brains, tinier elbows and narrower shoulders.
#8. Male's body has thousands of whiskers
The number of hair on a man’s face can vary from five thousand to twenty-five thousand stubs of hair on his cheeks and chin. That is why they spend almost five years of their lives shaving their facial hair.
#9. Male hair loss doesn’t always come down to his mother
Most people think that men's baldness is passed down from the mother, but it's not true. There are some studies confirming that it can be passed down from the father.
#10. Men use only half of brain to think
Studies show that males usually use the left side of their brain, which is considered to be rational and logical. That is why women are better at multitasking, while men are better at logical tasks.
