I asked women cyclists, from beginners to pros, if they had questions they didn’t feel comfortable asking in a shop, or even at the gynecologist’s office. The answer? A resounding YES! So, after collecting questions ranging from the basic (pad or tampon?) to the scary (is it OK if I’m numb down there after a ride?) to the practical (should I get a Brazilian wax if I’m riding a lot of hours?) to the technical (how do I find the right saddle?) to the painful (how do I deal with bad PMS cramps on the bike?), I went to the experts to get the right answers. I spoke with women in the industry, from bike shop workers to saddle designers, and then to the “other” experts: a panel of gynecologists ranging from serious cyclists to doctors who only ride occasionally, plus bikini waxers, nutritionists and more.
