Obviously when a girl is on her period, she may have metalic smell about her. But I'm wondering, can other people smell it too, or is it just noticeable to the girl who is on her period? I've never noticed it on other women, have you?

Can't speak for other guys, only myself.
Its not something I consciously smell, but subconsciously I always know when its happening, at least with certain women. This probably sounds a little creepy, but there are certain women where when they're on their period, I just can't ignore them, like there is some inperceivable signal calling my attention to them and stirring up my emotions
It happens the same time every month with certain co-workers, and I couldn't figure out why I kept feeling that way until after a few months of these events, I noticed they were making frequent trips to the restroom with their little sanitary bags (I never had any sisters, so was pretty dense to this kind of stuff.)
So, its not like a gross stinky thing that we perceive in my case, if thats what you're worried about. Its more just a blast of subconscious chemical signals that is only experienced from certain women and by certain men.
I actually mistook these feelings for crushes at first, until I realized they only lasted a few days at a time, the same time every month.1

There's this one certain girl who I used to have to sit next to on the bus and I could smell it at times. But most other people I never could so I'm guessing if we're really close together and they haven't you know, changed in awhile possibly.0
