Regular Cycling May Not Have A Negative Impact On Male Sexual Health Study

A University of California study reveals that men's sexual health is not affected by intense cycling.

Participants completed validated questionnaires, including the Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM), International Prostate Symptom Score (I-PSS), and National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI), as well as questions about urinary tract infections (UTIs), urethral strictures, genital numbness, and saddle sores. Participants included 2,774 cyclists, 539 swimmers, and 789 runners whose data was collected and found this incredible results which made the earlier results void.

Athletes were divided into two groups: high-intensity cyclists, meaning riding more than two years, more than three times per week and averaging 25 miles per day and low-intensity cyclists meaning the athletes fell below that criteria.

The test results showed not only that there's no discernable connection between sexual health and cycling but also that professional cyclists aren't more prone to urinary infections and sexual dysfunction than swimmers and runners.

"This is the largest comparative study to date, exploring the associations of cycling, bike and road characteristics with sexual and urinary function using validated questionnaires", Breyer said. Cycling provides tremendous cardiovascular benefits and is low impact on joints.

Neither bicycle nor road characteristics appeared to have a negative impact on cyclists.

Cyclists were also asked about cycling intensity, bicycle configuration, bike type, saddle type, saddle angle, frequency of wearing padded shorts while cycling, percent of time standing out of the saddle, handlebar height, and the type of surface on which they usually ride. Adjusting handlebar height lower than the saddle height did increase the likelihood of genital numbness and saddle sores. "We believe the health benefits enjoyed by cyclists who ride safely will far out weight health risks".

He added that future studies will look more closely at those who reported numbness to determine if it is a sign for future problems.

The findings can be found published online in The Journal of Urology.
