A quarter of men believe that they experience a monthly “man period”, according to new research.

As part of a study of 2,412 people (50pc men and 50pc women), males were asked if they frequently suffered the same side effects of premenstrual syndrome that women experience, including tiredness, cramps and increased sensitivity.

Whilst 26pc of men in the British survey revealed that they did experience these feelings on a regular basis, perhaps a more shocking statistic was that 58pc of their female partners believed them.

Furthermore, all female respondents whose partners claimed to experience “man periods” were asked whether or not they offered any special support to their partners during these times – and 43pc did. Of those who didn’t believe their partners, 33pc admitted to telling their partner to “man up”.
