Healthy Morning Erections
« on: April 20, 2017, 04:29:21 PM »

I've read that nighttime and morning erections are good for recovery as it keep blood flowing and helps prevent build up of fibrosis etc. This makes sense to me.

My question is what constitutes a "good" morning erection? Should I be concerned about ED if my morning wood is only lasting a couple of minutes at 90% full? Some days I do better, if I stay in bed in can get almost fully hard and last 10-15 minutes after waking (I usually get mine right as I wake up). Some days I get half-erect before fading in a minute or two. Most nights I usually wake up to notice some kind of erection in various levels of fullness.

Also, I never get spontaneous daytime erections anymore so is that something I should stimulate in some way? I am not watching porn but could use my imagination or maybe get my partner to help (I am abstaining from sex/masturbation currently so this would be a bit of tease on both our parts).

I am not on Cialis, L-Arginine etc. at the moment, but hope to go back on them or something similar (I had a bad reaction to Cialis and have gone off everything for a week or two). I've also considered Pycnogenol with L-Arginine as well as naturally boosting testosterone with weight training, eating more protein etc. Any tips would be appreciated. I don't think I have ED but might be showing early signs of it and want to address it now. Either way I want to maintain regular blood flow down there during the acute phase.

I don't know that comparing morning erections is a good indicator of anything. Some mornings I have them, some not.

My urologist seems to think that morning erections don't mean very much.

Toronto34, I would substitute the Arginine for L-Citrulline in powder form, it is cheap and helps pre-workout  :)

Well it doesn't matter if they are in the night or in the morning, but if he's not getting any nocturnal/morning wood, and no erections during the day, that is a problem. Frequent (daily) erections are vital to penis health.

I agree with Skunkworks. Erections, particularly NTEs are key to penile health. Unfortunately there isn't much appreciation of this by urologists, nor is there much research into the frequency or quality of NTEs required to adequately sustain the penis.

The official average for a healthy male is 3-6 a night. The 2015 European urological guidelines consider an NTE of 60% rigidity which lasts 10 mins or more to be indicative of normal erectile function, but personally, I think this threshold is far too low and it appears to have been picked out of thin air.

If you have underpar NTEs, I believe it's possible to enter into a vicious cycle - inability to get NTEs = loss of erectile function = inability to get NTEs, and so on.

I would advise to get the best NTEs you can. In the absence of Cialis you can use l-arginine/l-citruline and pycnogel to help get the best NTEs possible. Just be mindful that your body down regulates NO2 so you will need to come off these every once in a while to allow your body to reset.

Hello,

I have got some questions:

1. if my ED is caused by L-arginine (too much NO, very long daily I took AAKG capsules) is it now to cure my ED i use PDE5 (Viagra, Cialis etc)?
I will add that I have no night, morning and spontaneous erections.

2. Why use VED one cylinder (20, 30 and 50% erection) is better than erection by hand stimulation?

Regards

Hi Wladyslaw,

In answer to your questions:

1. I've never heard of L-arginine causing ED. The only way I can imagine it happening is if you've taken too much over a long period of time and then stopped. If this is the case, your body will reset given time and your erectile function should return naturally.

2. If you can get and maintain a 100% erection then perhaps you don't need a VED. Otherwise VEDs can be very helpful. Most people use VEDs to reduce penile curvature / indentation / hourglassing  and/or because they have erectile dysfunction.

Hey PeetyPeet,

Have you corrected your condition, have you had good erections?
If so what helped you?

I have high LDL cholesterol and I do not know why. I have a healthy diet and I am a sport. What could be the reason - it may have links with ED and Peyronies Disease?

Regards

Sadly no, I haven't had normal erections for the past 12 years or so. My ED has been steadily becoming more severe but I seem to have slowed this process down somewhat by using VED, pentox and regular low dose cialis. I used L-arginine too for a while but found my body down regulated it so quickly it just started to feel like a waste of money. I was also concerned it was lowering my testosterone as my libido seemed to drop.

I have not made any improvements to my ED. I would suggest you try to get the best erections you can. In my experience there comes a point when there is no turning back and your ED is permanent.

Hello PeetyPeet,

Does this mean only an implant ?!
How old are you?

I'm 37. I can currently just about get a reasonable erection with 20mg cialis. But yes, there may come a time in the not too distant future when I will require an implant. I refuse to consider injections due to having read of fibrosis caused by repeated use. Besides, an injection immediately before sex. What a turn off.
