A former midwife of the NHS has warned women to be on & # 39; winter vagina & # 39; to fit and has given advice on how to prevent this.
The condition can be both shameful and painful and have a serious impact on your sex life.
But if you now have what you need to do, you can avoid problems that start at this time of the year and last until spring, The Mirror reports.
Mary Burke, a former NHS midwife and senior clinical nurse at the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic told The Sun: "Dry autumn and winter air draws moisture from our bodies, leaving our skin dehydrated and cracked, and our sinuses dehydrated.
"And although it is a matter that few people want to talk about openly, our vagina's can also enter drought mode at this time.
"If we spend a lot of time in air-conditioned or heated rooms, we live in air that contains very little moisture."
In search of medical instruments there are self-help options available, such as buying a lubricant or vaginal moisturizer.
Mary Burke says that simple changes in lifestyle, such as eating your greens, avoiding hard soap and buying a humidifier, can also help.
If this does not work, you can ask for help from your doctor.
But not all experts believe that cold weather and dry air will cause a problem.
The NHS says that vaginal dryness is caused by a decrease in estrogen levels.
Earlier this year, Teen Vogue's post about getting your & # 39; best summer page & # 39; mercilessly ridiculed.
Dr. Jen Gunter then said: "Vagina's function pretty well in all seasons".
This comes months after men claimed that the warm weather them & # 39; summery penis & # 39; gave – a phenomenon that causes elevated temperatures to make the penis appear larger.
