Can Cycling Decrease a Man's Ability to Produce Semen

 

Semen and cycling
I am 68 years old so this topic has very little to do with me but I know that there are a lot of people who wonder if cycling can decrease a man's ability to produce semen. Surprisingly, many of the people searching for this are women. I guess that they wonder if their cycling obsessed partner will be able to get them pregnant.

There is no credible research suggesting that riding a bicycle decreases a man's ability to produce semen. In fact, cycling is a low-impact aerobic exercise that can improve cardiovascular health and overall fitness.

However, some studies have suggested that prolonged and intense cycling can cause temporary discomfort and numbness in the genital area, which can lead to erectile dysfunction or decreased sexual function. This is due to pressure on the perineum, the area between the scrotum and anus, which can compress nerves and blood vessels.

To avoid this issue, it is important to choose a bicycle that fits your body properly and to use padded shorts or a cushioned seat. Taking breaks and standing up periodically during long rides can also help relieve pressure on the perineum.

There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that riding a bicycle decreases a man's ability to produce semen. However, prolonged and intense cycling can cause temporary discomfort in the genital area, which can lead to erectile dysfunction or decreased sexual function. By choosing the right bike, using proper equipment, and taking breaks during long rides, you can enjoy the many health benefits of cycling without compromising your sexual health.
