The most romantic day of the year is Valentine's Day. Although it's a perfect excuse for many to physically express their affection, others hate it.

According to a survey, millions of British women say they "dread" having sex on Valentine's Day.

A survey of women between the ages of 40 and 61 found that three million are particularly anxious about the big day because they worry about future sexual activity.

The study, commissioned by Vagisil, also found that at some stage in their lives, nearly six million women suffer from vaginal dryness.

Because of this, a fifth of those surveyed made an excuse to avoid sex, and 24% admitted to "suffering in silence," hoping it would get better.

52% of women who said no to sex due to vaginal dryness said that they felt like they had let their partner down, and 33% felt that they were dissatisfied with their partner.

A third said that not being able to have sex made them feel "less womanly," according to the study that was commissioned as part of the Fearless GP Survey campaign.
