Morning Wood

It’s the free levels of testosterone, that correlate to morning wood. Many older guys start to lose them because as they get older Shbg increases. Shbg then binds up all the free testosterone making it unavailable. A safer alternative would be to eat foods that help lower estrogen in the body. Testosterone boosters have a whole bunch of side effects like increase hair loss if your prone to it. Eat healthy, get plenty of exercise, and lower alcohol intake.

I agree. Nocturnal erections are usually associated with REM sleep during the night. It doesn’t have to happen in the morning right when you wake up. I usually don’t have a hard on when I wake up in the morning, but I am a light sleeper and usually find myself hard as a rock sometime during the night.

There is a test doctors use to determine if men with ED have an ability to get hard or not. You stick a ring of postage stamps around your dick before you go to bed. If the ring has been torn apart when you wake up in the morning, it means you got hard some time during the night.

You might be able to “kick-start” them again with supplements of L-arginine. Works on maybe half the guys who use it, no all.

My morning wood quit happening in my mid-50s. They were reliably happening until then. But at about that time I also got ED. I found that Viagra, taken more frequently than just for sex increased them. L-arginine caused them to occur about two weeks into supplementing with that. Now it’s a rare day I don’t wake with a boner and I am a good deal older than you.

But also, as mravg suggests above, much of this has to do with sleep patterns. Yours may have changed such that you have hard erections during deep, REM sleep but are now waking more slowly from REM than you used to so that the erection subsides before you wake.

If you’re waking to an alarm clock that may be the issue. You need to wake up during REM sleep, as this is when you’ll get morning wood. If you’re in another stage of sleep and get roused by an alarm, you won’t have it because of that reason. Usually the body wakes itself when it’s ready to rise, and you’ll usually find yourself with morning wood this way. This is the case for me, anyway. When I just let myself sleep until I’m entirely rejuvenated (i.e., the weekendS), I wake with morning wood.

Also, dehydration may play a role in the lack of wood. Hangovers/drinking dehydrates you. When you drink a lot, and have to pee really bad in the morning, you tend to be hard as well.

Cialis will bring back a chord of morning wood!!!

I have increased Zinc and magnesium, and quit cafeine, maybe I’ll get morning wood. I am getting spontaneous erections more often is that good?

sonicjelqs sounds logical. Can you give examples of foods / supplements that will lower estrogen ?

The Chromum picolinate, is this is a readily available supplement?

And yes, I try to avoid drinking too much DDT…gives me gas (and rashes, and nausea and oh yeh, death!)

Thanks

Booze? I know I should quit it, and I am sure it will help my erections, but god damn it I love it. :D


Wishing and hoping for the best - yup your doing it wrong.

It looks like the cat in your avatar likes it too.

In addition to everything already said, I’m in my 40s and stopped having morning wood a while back. I’ve been on the modified newbie routine for a couple of weeks now and morning wood is back. Especially if I stretch and tuck my penis between my legs (there is something I never thought I would say) before I doze off then it is almost a guarantee that I’ll wake up with morning wood. Also, I notice if I wake up about 30-60 minutes before I normally wake up, much better chance for morning wood.

Exercise regularly, avoid processed food, drink at least eight 12oz. glasses of water a day. Take 5000 mg of fish oil and 3 ZMA’s. If you smoke or drink alcohol/coffee limit or quit all together. I run or bicycle every day, lift free weights three days a week. This regiment works for me, I am in my mid fifties and do not have ED and have morning wood nearly every day.
