The thing is the lady in the article may be prone to Bartholian cysts even without cycling. As a healthcare professional in this area I’ve seen quite a few Bartholian cysts and none of the women in question were keen cyclists. I think some womens ducts drain better than others and some get clogged up regardless of cycling. 🤷‍♀️😬😆

Obviously an Aubergine
It must be true, the Daily Mail says so (in graphic detail!).

Gutter journalism at its worst or a valuable warning to half the population?
Ah yes the good old Heil..

At the forefront of concern for women's wellbeing..

Not.

The same ones who, if I got attacked by a predatory male whilst out solo bike packing, would probs run an article implying that either

a) I was asking for it in some way, by having the temerity to wear

"Shorts like these!!"

And or.

b) "It's not safe for women to go out alone.. What was she thinking of??"

I'm not opening the article because

a) it's dm clickbait,

And b) its just going to be a pruriant excuse to talk about women's bits and pieces, with no real substance, or resolution to the story.

Oh and c)

Got a bike packing trip to plan, on which I will use a saddle that my undercarriage is very happy on thankyou :okay:

hanging-on in quiet desperation ...
