Cycling Doesn’t Damage Men’s Urinary Functions: Men who cycle a lot were being in a dilemma that their urinary functions and sexual health may be damaged according to the earlier reports. But, during a study that researchers made on this issue didn’t find any thing which may harm men’s health in Urinary and sexual health. In the study, neither recreational nor intense cycling appear to have a negative impact on men’s sexual and urinary function.
The multinational study which was done on a cross-section of three athletic groups namely cyclists, swimmers, and runners – was surveyed using Facebook ads and outreach to sporting clubs for athletes. 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.
“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”, explained lead investigator Benjamin Breyer from the University of California-San Francisco. Breyer noted that the results will be encouraging for cyclists. This is a crucial thing towards men’s health.
He further added that “Cycling provides tremendous cardiovascular benefits and is low impact on joints. We believe the health benefits enjoyed by cyclists who ride safely will far out weight health risks.” In addition to the comparisons between similar athletic activities with and without perineal pressure, the researchers examined how cycling intensity, bicycle configuration, and even road conditions might impact sexual and urinary functions.
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.
