Wait, Could Your Period Be What’s Giving You Nightmares?

Did you have a strange or scary dream last night? Chances are you’re ovulating.

Studies have linked changes in body temperature with a change in how vivid or scary our dreams become. A woman’s temperature generally rises half-way through the monthly cycle, around the time of ovulation, which could cause the dream weirdness!

It’s also been proven that, on average, women have scarier or more aggressive dreams than men. Women are also more likely to remember their horrible dreams on waking. But what do they mean? Here are some pointers on what your cycle-related dreams could be telling you…

Being chased

If someone is chasing you in your dream it usually means you’re avoiding a situation or person in real-life. It could also relate to any fears, stress or phobias that you haven’t dealt with in your waking hours.

Your teeth falling out

This very common dream could symbolise a very real loss such as a job or friend. It could also signify a transition period such as starting a new job or a child leaving home. Some analysts also believe that dreaming of your teeth falling out indicates a desire to regress back to childhood when you didn’t have teeth.

Being naked

If you’ve ever dreamt of being naked while at work or in the supermarket then it literally means you’re feeling exposed. It could be that you’re feeling vulnerable about a situation or that you’ve revealed to much about yourself to someone.

Falling

To dream of falling indicates insecurities and anxieties about a situation in your waking life. Quite possibly you’re feeling overwhelmed at the moment, which is why these dreams occur. Falling dreams can also be about a sense of failure or a loss of self-esteem.

Your period

If you dream about your period when it’s not your time of the month, this may indicate some form of anxiety about your cycle. In general, period-related dreams are all about releasing pent-up worry and may well signal an end to a difficult time you’ve been having.
