Is It Normal to Be Numb While Bicycling?

Bicycling is a great form of exercise, along with a healthy and economical way to commute. However, for some cyclists, sitting on the seat can cause compression of nerves and blood vessels in an area of the body called the perineum. Contrary to some cyclists' belief, it is not normal for any part of your body to go numb. Compression of the perineum can lead to nerve damage and lack of blood flow through the blood vessels. These problems can become more serious and lead to erectile dysfunction (ED), permanent groin numbness, and other potentially permanent problems. However, there are a number of ways to help prevent these problems while bicycling, including a few simple changes in equipment.
