I'm relatively new to riding, and have been on the bike every day for the past few weeks and climbing a lot of hills. I noticed in the past few days that my perineum is swollen. It's not uncomfortable when I'm on the bike, but is a little alarming. Is this something anyone else has experienced? Will the swelling go down? Any advice would be great. I'd rather not go to the doctor...

Thank you!

As an amateur gynecologist who studied by Braille I would say give "it" a rest and see if "it" goes away. If it does, get back on the bike and see if "it" comes back. If so, you will have no choice but The Doctor. And anyway I (and prob'ly most of us on TE) would rather see a gynecologist than not ride.
Also sometimes you need your perineum for Other Things so best get it sorted.

and if you're 'more than swollen' than I am (like rug burn) get Max Strength Vagisil cream, wipes and powder and lots of hi-cut brief cotton undies in white. no dyes or fancy schmancy lace to irritate you. the elastic will do that all its own.
