    Is there anyway to ease the pain caused by being on a bike too long, in the genital area?

    Like, it hurts to pee and all around is just sore. I have tried wearing a sanitary towel in the hope it would cushion the genitals..but it didn't. Lol.

    So what do other girls do?

    I have this trouble too, I did actually buy a seat that was supposed to be more comfy with foamy stuff in it and a wider area for your bum but it didn't really help as most of the padding is towards the back, not the front. Maybe try padded shorts or something.

    You may be using a male - specific saddle, which would apply pressure inappropriately for a woman - the majority of the pressure should be placed on the buttocks for a woman, whereas with a man the pressure can be placed more centrally. If you want to look at the specific differences the specialized body geometry range is scientifically designed - I have one of the mens ones and it is very good:

    Invest in some cycling shorts!
    saddle sore is the worst, do you cycle regularly? Maybe you're just not used to the saddle.
    Try some of this aswell Cream.

    Buy a good seat. Most seats are the thinner ones which are for men.
