Summer vagina tips have gone viral online – but not everyone agrees with them.
The advice claims women’s intimate areas change during the hottest months of the year.
After seeing reports on the matter, Dr Jen Gunter argued that this isn’t actually true.
Teen Vogue published an article that was headlined: “How to get your best summer vagina ever”.
An excerpt from the story reads: “The unique elements of summer – water, sunshine, sand, sweat – can be tricky to navigate…
“While you might think there’s little difference in the TLC she gets every other season, ob-gyns note that summer is especially important to pay attention to any symptoms, changes, and funkiness you notice south of the border.”
The report noted that wet swimsuits and sunbathing naked could wreak havoc on your vagina.
After the article was published, some readers were amused by the wording.
One Twitter user joked: “Wait, I need a summer vagina now?
“I didn’t know I was supposed to be switching them out with the seasons.”
Another amused commenter wrote: “I had best tell the wife.
“She’s still got her winter one fitted, time to root through the draws and dig out the summer vagina.”
As many were baffled by the article, Dr Gunter decided to clear things up.
The medical expert argued that your vagina doesn’t change in the summer unless you switch up your beauty regime.
She said: “Vaginas function quite well in all seasons. Really. I run a clinic for vulvovaginal disorders and we are no busier when it is hot.
“The only possible issue that women might have during the summer months is with their vulva if they start a new hair removal technique or do more hair removal.
“This can lead to ingrown hairs, injuries, and an increased risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).”
