What Your Bicycle Seat Does to Your Vagina
Getting fit isn’t always comfortable. That bicycle seat may be unkind to your lady business.

The most important thing for comfort is proper placement of the bicycle seat. A saddle that is too high causes chaffing or pressure as you reach for the pedals. A saddle that is too low puts pressure on the vagina, because the legs aren’t supporting the body. If taking a spin class, your cycle instructor should know how to set your up body on the bike. Be sure to arrive 10-15 minutes early for a good, personalized fit.

A good seat also makes a difference. A wide saddle supports your hips. A divot in the seat relieves pressure on the vagina.

Your body will adapt. The key is to take the time for good seat positioning. Your bike adjustments will change as you lose (or gain) weight. Purchasing a seat cushion may provide more comfort for your body.

Wear sweat-wicking clothes for class. Be sure to shower and change your undergarments after class to avoid fungal and bacterial issues.

Listen as fitness expert Liz Corah joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss the importance of your bike seat in protecting your vagina.
