Morning erections and Cialis

Most of younger men as well as certain older individuals are curious about the effect of morning erections, and it seems that there aren’t as many people able to explain it to these men. Interesting enough, because the majority of men have experience of waking up in the morning with a very firm erection in their pants.

What is the phenomenon of morning erection?

Morning erections, also referred in everyday jargon as “morning wood” has even a more precise scientific definition – nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT). It is a completely normal and healthy phenomenon observed in most men. However, the most interesting fact is that morning erection is just an aftermath of a series of night time erections that most men do not observe, being the very last one and the only to be felt when a man wakes up. In average, a healthy man will experience three to five erections during the night time, each of them with a duration of 25-35 minutes.

Causes behind morning erection

One of the most common myths connected to morning erections states that this phenomenon is induced by a full bladder. However, it’s far from truth. And while it is unclear what the exact reason behind morning erections is, it is known for sure that night time erections are closely related to the REM phase of sleep. These night time erections are also characterized by rapid heartbeat. Still, it is not clear whether these erections are caused by any other physiological processes as further study is required. One theory states that morning and night time erections are a simple “maintenance” of the bodily functions that the body performs automatically.

Absence of morning erections

One of the studies conducted on the question of morning erections did not find any difference in the quality of these erections in older men as compared to younger males. Still, some of the most recent studies on the subject concluded that there’s a slight decline in morning erections as according to age, described by decline in rigidity and duration periods (however, with the same frequency).

One of the causes for particular interest in morning erections was their possible explanation of the causes behind erectile dysfunction and other sexual issues. If a man complains about the quality of his erections during sexual activity throughout the day, one thing a doctor will always ask is whether there are any morning erections in the patient.

If there are no morning erections in conjunction with the lack of ordinary erections throughout the day, it is believed that the cause behind erectile problems is purely physiological. So if you observe any problems with your morning erections you should definitely speak about it with your doctor if anything concerns you. Still, there are other reasons behind the lack of morning erections, such as quality and duration of sleep. So it doesn’t mean that the lack of morning wood is a definite sign of ED.
