During this stage in the cycle, estrogens are elevated in the female and progesterone levels are low.

Ultimately, these higher levels of testosterone may increase the reproductive success of males exposed to female ovulation cues.

The relationship between testosterone and female sexual motivation is somewhat ambiguous.

Research from male rhesus monkeys suggests testosterone functions to increase sexual motivation, thereby motivating males to compete for access to sexual partners.

It is postulated that the motivating effects of testosterone in male rhesus monkeys promotes successful sexual competition and may be particularly important motivating tools for low ranking males.

Females at different stages of their menstrual cycle have been shown to display differences in sexual attraction.

Heterosexual females not using birth control pills who are ovulating (high levels of estrogens) have a preference for the scent of males with low levels of fluctuating asymmetry.

It is also suggested that levels of testosterone are related to the type of relationship in which one is involved.

Men involved in polyamorous relationships display higher levels of testosterone than men involved in either a single partner relationship or single men.

Males who were exposed to scents of ovulating women recorded a higher testosterone level than males who were exposed to scents of nonovulating women.

Being exposed to female ovulating cues may increase testosterone, which in turn may increase males' motivation to engage in, and initiate, sexual behaviour.

However, sex hormones do not directly regulate the ability to copulate in primates (including humans).
