I've been cycling for exercise the past few months and notice when I do long rides my incontinence rises. Typically if I do a 20 km ride I'll leak a bit more but can sometimes keep it at my 1 pad per day level. Earlier this week I did a 40 km ride and next day went through 3 pads. Today I`m back to about 1 third of a light pad.
Anyone have any idea if I`m hurting myself and my continence, I use a seat with the groove for anatomy to keep pressure off the perinium but I admit it sometimes does go numb down there when on long rides. I love the road bike and would hate to lose it.
I`d like opinions and experiences of others if you`re a cyclist.
