Morning wood returns!!
For a while now I’ve not had wood in the morning, and also have felt I’ve been missing it through the night as well. I reckoned this was possibly due to some form of over training.
However I’ve been cutting back on the intensity of my training to see how things progress - but still no wood.
I could stimulate myself to erection in the morning, but these ‘automatic’ erections have been eluding me for some time.
I did some reading up and discovered that the night wood occurs during REM sleep, and that a disruption in REM sleep can effect normal nocturnal erections (and I think also morning wood).
I read that ED problems can also be attributed - to a degree - to disrupted REM sleep.
I moved out of the family home about 7 months ago and had fallen into a bad habit of sleeping patterns - getting much less than the recommended sleep. I didn’t think much about this until recently learning of the importance of REM sleep. In fact recently I’ve been getting less than 6 hours sleep.
So last night I retired at 9.30 - slept through to 8.30 - that’s 11 hours of sleep! And I had dreams (which I’ve not had for some time).
This was a drastic change to my ‘normal’ sleep.
And guess what…
And through the night I was aware of having night wood.
I’ve read here at thunders of the importance of nocturnal erections for penile health, so from now on I’m going to get plenty of sleep, and I’ll monitor results.
Will keep you posted on this.
So if you’re struggling with a lack of wood, maybe your sleep patterns need looked at.
Anyone else experienced this?
