Have you ever wondered why women feel cold more than men? Or at least that is what women claim. Let’s find out if this is just a myth or if there’s some truth to it.
Why women feel cold more than men?
It’s not rare during the night, to see a man without any cover, while his wife is up around her neck in the quilt, wishing she put on wool socks. While both sides complain about the other one, it’s time to learn about the differences in the cardiovascular system of women and men. Women lose heat more easily than men. This is happening because the heat preservation is based on the area of abdomen and uterus, probably from reproductive reasons, so women lose the temperature of the skin and other body parts much faster. In men, the heat is evenly distributed, and when they are exposed to the cold, the temperature of their bodies only mildly goes down, and they don’t even notice it.
Women also have less muscle causing the temperature changes to have more influence on them than on their stronger half. This is why women more than men, feel cold or have bouts of heat, depending on the season.
