Is getting pregnant "contagious?"

We've all witnessed that "It must be in the water" effect when it seems like everyone around is getting pregnant all at once. In neighborhoods, in schools, among close groups of friends...

What do you think causes this? Women's cycles tend to sync up, so do you think it's something like that?

I would say it's just following our peers... but often it happens without us even knowing at first!

Do you know what causes this? Any speculation?

    It does seem to be. Lol I think it's nature taking over...humans way of making their family bigger and stronger than the one next door.
      A random coincidence I think.
        I think it's probably a mixture of hormones/pheromones. I think someone should do a study on this stuff. lol. I find it extremely interesting.
