It’s a subject that gets little attention, but affects countless women: Many women face problems related to cycling, spinning, and horseback riding that can be traumatizing to the vagina. Up until recent times women were often discouraged from participating in these particular activities because of vaginal maladies that seemed unavoidable. Of course we know now that there are ways to avoid trauma to the vagina, but some women, unlike Bren, are either too embarrassed to ask the right questions or they imagine that they must simply grin and bear the pain.
It’s estimated that nineteen million women regularly participate in cycling or spinning as their primary source of physical exercise. That’s a whole lot of potential vaginal trauma. For triathlon competitors, the longest distance is also covered by bicycle. There’s V-trauma on top of the potential muscle pain and cramps of the swimming and running segments.
