Can the cold weather affect flow of period?i am experiencing it right now and wondering why? Didn't have a regular period for the last 2months either.

My friend sleeps most nights in a damp t-shirt will this make her sick especially in the cold weather?
Not particularly: Hi, I'd have liked to know why she sleeps in damp Tshirt? Intentionally or does she sweat causing Tshirt to become damp? If weather is cold maybe it's still too warm for her indoors. Most people find it unpleasant and cold to wear/sleep in damp clothing and dampness may cause skin irritation/chaffing but it won't make her catch a cold or other infection if that's what you mean by ill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dry air does suck...: ...The moisture out of your skin. After you bathe or shower, apply a good emollient lotion (any brand will do) to your skin while it is still moist, to lock in the moisture.
