🍌 The Shocking Truth About Morning Erections & Your Health
What Causes Morning “Wood” / Erections?

Waking up with an erection or a “woody” as some guys call it, is also called “Nocturnal Penile Tumescence (NPT).

This is a normal occurrence with most boys and men, especially when younger – when things are working properly and correctly.

Time To Urinate

One theory for the cause of morning erections is due to the timing of Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep and because of the parasympathetic nervous system affecting the sacral nerve.

This nerve is connected to the badder and simply stated, when you need to urinate, you’ll get an erection.

However, I don’t like this theory much because there are plenty of times I’ve gotten up in the middle of the night to pee and I don’t have an erection. So, why does it mainly happen in the morning?

Sexual Stimulation
Another theory is that you’ve had a vivid and sexual dream and you’re stimulated. Or, maybe your partner touches you while both of you are sleeping this some sort of “sexual stimulation”, which causes an erection

Again, a bad theory in my opinion. Little boys get morning erections and I doubt they are having sexual dreams and there’s nobody laying next to them that could sexually stimulate them.

The REAL Cause Of Morning Erections

Do you know when a man does a hormone blood test for testosterone levels, they tell him to do it first thing in the morning?… This is because your testosterone, both total and free testosterone, is highest in the morning.

And THIS is also the reason you have morning erections – healthy testosterone levels. More so, optimal hormonal balance.

This means lower estrogen levels and in fact, normal cortisol levels.

It’s ALL About The Hormones

For example…

IF estrogen and other female hormones are high, your testosterone will be lower and there’s an imbalance between these male/female hormones.

IF your stress hormones are also very high, such as cortisol and similar hormones, your testosterone will also be lower.

In fact, this is why when you’re under heavy stress or you don’t sleep well or not enough, you will not have morning erections. But, if you get a really good night’s sleep, you’ll wake up with a strong morning erection….

ASSUMING your testosterone and other key hormones are ALSO balanced and in an optimal range.

And I’ll tell you how you can quickly fix these hormones in a minute and do so, naturally. So please continue watching if this is something you want to fix.

And of course, this all makes sense when you think about it — this is why when you’re younger, you usually waking up with strong, morning “wood”.

Now, you may ask, “but wait, earlier you said little boys get morning erections – they don’t have any testosterone yet?”

No, this is incorrect.

Little boys may NOT be producing as much testosterone as an adult male, since their testicles aren’t producing much, YET.

However, they are STILL producing enough, especially from their adrenal glands.

What IF You’re NOT Getting Morning Erections?

So the next question is, what if you’re not getting morning erections? What does this mean?

Of course, as you get older, due to stresses in life, and so forth – I don’t expect you to wake up with a crazy strong erection every morning, but you should most days.
