Comparative research conducted on mammalian females, including women, has led to the conclusion that women have lost explicit ovulation cues throughout evolution. However, over the past decade, results of numerous studies imply that ovulation is not entirely concealed. The aim of this paper is to give a review and synthesis of previous findings which show that the most fertile period is characterized by various changes in behaviour.
One of those changes is shift in preference for different male characteristics. The fertile phase is also characterized by changes in sexual behaviour, i.e. they feel more attractive, take more care of their physical appearance, use more beauty products, more often initiate sexual intercourse and fantasize more about sex. Furthermore, changes in the levels of jealousy are also found. All of these changes are assumed to represent revolutionary adaptive mechanisms. At the same time, different mechanisms developed that enabled men to detect a fertile phase in order to enhance their reproductive success. Detection of the fertile phase is based on olfactory, visual and auditory information.
