The new study expands on a 2006 Yale study which found that female cyclists experienced less "genital sensation" compared with female runners. For the new study, 48 hardcore female riders who cycled at least 10 miles a week were observed to measure their soreness, numbness, and tingling sensations.
Researchers discovered that bikes with handlebars positioned lower than the seats experienced more pressure in an area of soft tissue called the perineum, and had decreased sensation in the pelvic floor.

That means higher handlebars might be an easy solution to fertility woes.
