An app charting women’s menstrual cycles reportedly has 65 million downloads. Most are presumably women, though we suspect some are certain
pervy males in the Ministry of Human Resources who are allegedly now requiring female civil service applicants to describe their periods SMCP reports:
Few male mainlanders outside the medical profession know as much about women’s menstrual cycles as Chai Ke.
The 28-year-old developed the health app Dayima – Putonghua slang for a woman’s period – which has been downloaded 65 million times since it was created last year and has more than 21 million registered users.
Women use it to record their periods and get reminders of whether they are on time and what their chances of getting pregnant are on a particular day. Other basic health indicators, such as body mass index, can be recorded for users to get health and dietary tips.
In fact, the app has collected so much data that its makers feel confident enough to hypothesise that mainland women are going longer between periods than the 28 to 30 days widely established. Some wait well over 30 days between periods.
….Chai said the app aimed to provide very detailed answers to menstruation problems. For example, one tip is that good laughter helps relieve period pain because it stimulates production of dopamine. The app even provides a few jokes for this purpose.
Hopefully none are related to the subject at hand because menstruation jokes are *not* funny, period.
