Are rock solid NTEs a sign of good erectile function?
« on: July 21, 2021, 05:04:38 AM »

Hi all

like many struggling with this disease i've increasingly struggled to keeping it up. i've been trying to understand wether this is psychological or not.

However, last night, i had a rock solid NTE, to the point i couldnt get it back down and go back to sleep. is this a sign that my erectile function is still good?

If you are having rock solid NTE then your erection quality is good.  Remember that erections are also related to our minds and emotions.

As far as I know, there are only two causes of Erectile Dysfunction that still allow for NTE's.

1. Men with nerve damage can have total Erectile Dysfunction with physical and psychological stimulation but still have NTE's because NTE's use different nerve pathways than stimulated erections.  Nerve damage can be caused by anything ranging from total paralysis to a pinched nerve or nerve damage during prostate removal.

2. The other is psychological Erectile Dysfunction caused by adrenalin while waking. Adrenalin is the result of fear, anger, stress, and anxiety. It is an erection killer because adrenalin binds to the same nerve pathway as Nitric Oxide.  Adrenalin is intended to shut down blood flow to areas of the body where it is not needed during "Fight or Flight" situations.

If you cannot get daytime erections but get NTE's, your Erectile Dysfunction is likely to be caused by one of these two problems.

I think i classify as number 2. my libido is extremely low as i hate to see what he looks like atm. i can still get erections whilst awake but think psychologically i cant go beyond a certain point

i started ramping up my exercise and taking daily 1.8 mg L-Citrulline for a few weeks and it seems to be having its effect though :)
