For men who ride bicycles, there is a risk that pads and helmets will not help.
According to a scientific reviewpublished in the journal Sports Medicine, bicycle contraction saddles can destroy male reproductive organs, causing erectile dysfunction and nerve damage.
Scientists now say that common male cyclists are about to avoid injuries and long-term side effects that can affect their gender and their father's ability to have children. It suggests that you should stand up in the peddle every 10 minutes.
Polish researchers have put together a review of 22recent studieson pain and injuries caused by bicycle seats, including saddle pain, such as a "noseless" style. I have outlined the best solution to prevent. It removes the narrow areas found in traditional saddles and reduces pressure on the genitals.
"Many men suffer from discomfort when riding a bicycle, and there are concerns that this can lead to sexual problems," said Kamil Ritwino, lead author of the study. Witztold the Daily Mail. "But there is also strong evidence that sedentary tendency is associated with erectile dysfunction, so cycling as a form of activity can reduce that risk."
Previous studiesshow that traditional bicycle saddles can put pressure on sensitive nerve endings in the crotch area of both men and women, ultimately causing damage. I am. Numbness due to repeated vehicles. One such study,, found that 91% of male cyclists lost sensation around their genitals after riding. However, findings related to erectile dysfunction or infertilityare mixed and restricted. ..
Wroclaw Medical College researchers examine elements such as seat cushions, handlebars, and bicycle shorts to analyze previous findings on the manufacture of various bicycles and put pressure on the male genitals. We have decided what to mitigate the most.
According to the review, the nose saddle came out on top of all other changes — proven by one particular study of biking police. After using the nose saddle for 6 months, the number of people who said that their numbness had subsided in the nose style increased from 27% to 82%. Police officers also reported that they had little experience with ED after boarding.
Researchers warn that nose seats require practice as they can reduce riding stability. However, they say that if men can manage it, noseless seats help improve blood flow to the genitals compared to other seats.
This study concludes that: "Current evidence favors the use of noseless saddles as a means of reducing the adverse effects of cycling on penile oxygen pressure. Pedaling every 10 minutes may be effective and widely applicable.
For those who don't want to switch, six previous studies mentioned in the new report show that they're just sitting on the bike. Therefore, standing on the pedals of your bicycle regularly while riding is the best way to prevent numbness and subsequent ED. It can slow circulation and increase blood pressure in that area.
Litwinowicz says, "I don't want men to stop cycling, but I'll consider standing on a pedal or using a different saddle instead."
