Biking And Sperm Heath
Studies have shown that men who bike ride excessively have poorer quality sperm than men who do not bike. This is because the pressure created from riding on the bicycle seat restricts blood flow to the groin area and interferes with the healthy production of sperm.
In 2009, at the University of Cordoba in Spain, researchers studied the sperm quality of tri athletes and discovered that those men who cycled more than 186 miles per week had less than 4% normal looking sperm. This low level is associated with male fertility problems. More recently, researchers in Boston have shown that men who cycle more than 5 hours per day have twice the risk of low sperm concentration and low sperm mobility than men who did not cycle.
If you are hoping to conceive a child in the near future it is recommend that you cut the number of hours you spend riding on a bicycle or invest in a bike seat without the protruding nose as this may help to put less pressure on the groin and increase the blood flow to the penis while riding..
