    My sister complains of pain in - 3 similar sentences

    Hello all forum members!
    A woman's body parts are known to be much softer than those of a man. The below-mentioned sentences are stricty related to the fact.
    My sister complains of pain in her buttocks from having ridden her bicycle for a long time.
    My sister complains of backache from not having ridden her bicycle for a long time.
    My sister complains of pain in her legs from not riding her bicycle regularly enough.

    I hasten to explain what I mean.
    1. My sister complains of pain in her buttocks from having ridden her bicycle for a long time. =? 1.) Today my sister was riding/has been riding her bike for many hours and the result is that she is suffering from pain in her buttocks.
    2. My sister complains of backache from not having ridden her bicycle for a long time. =? 2.) My sister has not ridden her bike for a long time; that is why she is suffering from backache. The last time she got on her bike was many many years ago.
    3. My sister complains of pain in her legs from not riding her bicycle regularly enough. =? 3.) My sister complains of pain in her legs because she does not ride her bicycle regularly enough.
    What do you think of my 3 examples?
    If necessary, I will start one thread for each sentence.
    By "from having ridden", "not from having ridden" and "from not riding" I mean "as a result of having ridden", "as a result of not having ridden" and "as a result of not riding", respectively.
    Thank you.

    Never mind your various sentences. I'd like to know what you mean by the sentence I've left above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is known that the skin of women is more sensitive than that of men. Women have 15 % of muscular tissue whereas men have 40 %. A few months ago, my wife asked me early in the morning. What have you been doing to me at night? I am all covered in bruises. It was a joke, of course. She may have hit her arm on something and a bruise appeared.
    Could you answer my basic questions?
    Please do tell me what you think of my 3 bolded sentences.

    I think you should leave that statement at a doctor's office. We are not here to debate whose skin is more sensitive.
