It's important to maintain pubic hair as it keeps the area clean.
But many women would have snubbed their usual appointments for a bikini wax during the coronavirus outbreak.
Now dermatologists have warned a pubic lice spike is on its way to the UK.
Although for years scientists have claimed the insects were on their way out, things might be changing now.
Experts at the Virtual Annual Meeting of the British Association of Dermatologists have claimed the lice might be sticking around.
According to dermatologists from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, there are a number of factors why they're here to stay.

Due to changes in pubic hair removal, that could be one reason why lice could be sneaking back up again.
If hair is present, it would be easier for the lice to stay around.
It could also be due to a resistance to chemical treatments, like permethrin, which makes it harder to eliminate them.
Experts say this is something that has previously been seen in head lice.
Climate change could also have an impact on where lice live, according to the experts.
As areas get warmer, others will get cooler, and lice have been known to increase during cold weather.
Dr Priya Patel, one of the researchers of "The pestilential past of Pthirus pubis" study at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, said: "Reports of the demise of pubic lice seem to have been made prematurely.
"This is by no means a disaster, as pubic lice are likely to remain an uncommon issue in this country, even if they are not completely eradicated."
She added: "The series certainly overlaps with the period which marks the low point for pubic lice.
"But having survived that, the pubic louse seems to be here to stay, at least for as long as humans are around."
Matthew Gass, a spokesman for the British Association of Dermatologists, said: "I suspect that they would be missed rather less.
"That said, for all the talk of deforestation of their natural habitat, they have clung on."
He concluded: "Although we are unlikely to ever truly eradicate this pest, it's arguable that the 'cure' is worse than the disease for most people.
"Issues stemming from waxing, and other methods of widespread pubic hair removal, such as ingrown hairs or skin irritation are more common than pubic lice are ever likely to be and represent a greater overall health burden to the average person."
Pubic lice are tiny insects that live on human hair.
Symptoms include itchiness, inflammation, small drops of blood on your skin and black powder in your underwear.
