You blow up air mattresses faster in the week after ovulation

 

Have an air mattress to blow up? Lots of party balloons to fill? An inflatable toy that needs pumping up? Or need a whole lot of breath for something else?

Save all the blowing for Week 3 of your cycle–the week right after ovulation.

Research shows that you exhale more breath on these days compared to the rest of your cycle.

As a result, you’ll fill up these air-filled objects faster.

Credit for the deeper exhales during your Week 3 goes to the combination of estrogen and progesterone, which make it easier to exert pressure on muscles that help your lungs expel air.
