is pain tolerance determined by sex?
or is it individual. do women have higher pain tolerance than men due to the menstrual cycle and childbirth or is this a myth?

I have heard that passing kidney stones can be as painful as having children, so I would imagine both women and men have similar pain tolerances.Source(s): A friend of a relative who has experiened both.

Medical research into pain tolerance have found that, generally, men have a higher pain tolerance compared to women.
But of course an individual subject may have a variety of pain tolerance that falls outside this experimental norm.
Women, at one point in time, tended to go to Justin Bieber concerts, ... for example.
