Unrelated: drinking apple cider vinegar should have no effect on your vagina. If you are having dry vaginal intercourse, you might want to try a new kind of water based or silicone lubricant. You may also want to discuss your condition with your partner in order to better accommodate your sexual concerns.hope that helps and good luck.
