Women were showed two snaps of a girl who was clicked at different phases of her life. One picture was clicked at the time of ovulation while other was clicked when she was not ovulating.
The participants in the research were at peak estrogen levels in their monthly cycles and therefore, got easily jealous of the girl in the picture.
Higher levels of estrogen in the body are responsible for creating the feeling of jealousy in the women. Researchers noticed jealousy only when the participants were at a high hormonal point in their menstrual cycle.
