Why You Keep Waking Up at the Same Time Every Night



Morning Erections

Many young penis owners, and even some older ones who haven’t found the right people to ask, are curious about morning erections. Most people who have a penis have the experience, with some regularity, of waking up in the morning with an erection and wonder, what's up with this?

What Is A Morning Erection?

Morning erections colloquially referred to as "morning wood" and scientifically defined as nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) are a healthy and predictable physiological response that most men experience.

Morning erections would be better described as the tail end of a series of nighttime erections, as they are just the last erection in a series.

On average a healthy person with a penis will have between three and five erections during a full night sleep, with each erection lasting between 25 -35 minutes.

Am I Having the Hottest Dreams or What?

The erections we get when we sleep aren't, for the most part, a response to erotic dreams (although that's always possible).  It is a common myth that morning erections are caused by a full bladder. While we know that having a full bladder can lead to an erection in someone who is awake (we know this through research with men with spinal cord injuries) it's not clear that this does cause erections throughout the night.

Morning erections have been connected to the hormones testosterone and norepinephrine. Erections are closely associated with REM sleep (the time in the night when you dream and brain activity changes).

These erections are also associated with an increase in heart rate. It isn’t known for sure if these erections are a result of the other physiological changes, more research is required. Some suggest that morning erections are a way for your body to make sure everything is in working order.

Lack of Morning Erections

Early research on morning erections did not find a difference in the morning erections of older men when compared to those of younger men.

More recent research has shown a gradual decline in morning erections (some show just a decrease in the rigidity and length of time of an erection and not the frequency of getting erections).

One of the reasons morning erections attracted the interest of researchers was as a tool to rule out physical causes of erectile dysfunction. If you cannot get an erection to your satisfaction during sexual activities one of the first things a doctor will determine is whether or not you are getting full erections during the night and in the morning.

If a lack of morning erections is accompanied by a lack of overall erections it suggests a physical over a psychological cause. If you are concerned about a noticeable change in your morning erections it's something you may want to talk about with your doctor. However, there are a variety of other factors that influence morning erections (including length and quality of sleep) and a change in morning erections doesn't always indicate a serious problem.

Erectile Dysfunction Medications and Morning Erections

Medications used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) including sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis), can have an impact on morning erections.

Both medications, if taken the night before prior to sexual activities, can result in morning erections, although morning erections occur more often when tadalafil is used.
