5 Common Reasons Men Lose Their AM Erections
When you start waking with no morning wood, your ability to achieve an erection during daylight hours is going to diminish.
And those random erections, that show up for no apparent reason, will also start to fade.
Stage three of this process is the inability to get wood that is hard enough OR stays around long enough to have a satisfying sexual experience (blatant erectile dysfunction).
In other words, morning wood is usually lost first, then full blown ED soon follows, so it’s critical that you get a grip on this situation before it gets out of hand.
If your morning wood has faded, the first thing you should do is prepare and drink the Erection Juice described on page 23 of my ebook (no charge for this book).
Ignore the recommendation to drink it in the morning, and take it at night just before bed. If you wake up with an erection the following morning, you should consider yourself lucky…
Because chances are, your blood vessels are fine, and you just need to work on boosting nitric oxide, which isn’t too complicated.
If the drink doesn’t do the trick for you, you may have vascular problems, because an erection is basically a cardiovascular event.
In this case, you should look into the vitamin K protocol described on this page.
Now lets dial in on 5 common causes of this condition….
Low Testosterone & No Morning Wood
If your testicles are less that 1.5 inches in length, this is a very strong clue that may you have low testosterone.
If your ejaculation volume is down, or if you’re having a hard time building or retaining muscle, and you’ve also experienced a noticeable decrease in sex drive…
You probably have low-t.
Low testosterone and its impact on wood production hasn’t been entirely sussed out yet, but we do have plenty of evidence to look at…
For one, when testosterone levels drop, blood sugar levels usually rise, and arteries harden quickly when you have too much sugar in your blood.
And hard arteries make soft erections.
Low-t also causes insomnia in many men and nothing will terminate am wood faster than poor sleep patterns (more on this in a minute).
Low testosterone is also a marker for obesity, metabolic syndrome and estrogen dominance, all which have a direct impact on your ability to achieve an erection.
If you think you may have Low-T, you can learn how to spike it quickly Here.
DHT Blocking Agents & Erectile Dysfunction
Dutasteride, Finerseride (propecia) and the herb Saw Palmetto are often used to prevent hair-loss and treat enlargement of the prostate.
They accomplish this by blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
The problem with this plan is, DHT is a vital component of the erection process, and when you reduce levels in your system too much, you’re going to quickly feel the effects in the bedroom.
In June of 2001, the Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study showing that 94 percent of Propecia users surveyed has low libido and 92 percent experienced erectile dysfunction.
And many of these men were still dealing with these negative sexual side effects 40 months after going off the drug.
Dutasteride, the sister drug of Finesteride blocks DHT even more effectively than Finasteride does and it has many of the same negative side effects, including…
Reduced ejaculation volume
Breast tenderness or enlargement.
Difficulty getting or keeping an erection
And once again, these issues can haunt you for months or even years after you stop using the drug.
Saw Palmetto is a much weaker DHT blocker than the drugs are, but it can still cause similar side effects, especially if it is used chronically.
I’ve heard enough stories from men who’s erections were torched after using Saw Palmetto that I now recommend that most men should avoid it entirely.
Coronary Artery Disease & Morning Wood
Coronary arteries supply blood to your heart and to your penis, and neither will function properly if they’ve become stiff, blocked or damaged.
Arteries that lead to the penis are much narrower than the ones leading to your heart, so they usually get blocked up with plaque first, which will lead to erection difficulties that will continue to get worse over time.
As mentioned earlier, men with high blood sugar or diabetes are especially susceptible to this, but other risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, advanced age, family history and obesity.
You obviously have no control over genetics, but you do have control over the other risk factors, most of which can be addressed by exercising, losing weight and bringing your blood sugars down.
No Morning Wood & REM Sleep
It’s during REM sleep that men get nocturnal erections, a nighttime regenerative process where the pipes and tissues of your genitalia are maintained and repaired.
Your nervous system actually relaxes the penile muscle tissue and blood vessels during this process which increases blood flow and delivers vital nutrients to your entire package.
If you miss out on your REM sleep, you also miss out on this repair process, which will eventually lead to erection problems, especially if your sleep issues are chronic.
Porn Addiction & Loss Of Morning Erections
Morning wood is often lost in men addicted to porn, not because of blood flow issues, but because of problems with the brain.
Excessive porn consumption actually causes desensitization, in a similar fashion to an alcoholic, who needs to keep drinking more and more alcohol to cop the same buzz.
But in this case, it’s not whiskey or beer that you’ll develop tolerance to, but brain chemicals such as dopamine, that you must to respond to in order to get an erection.
And once this mismatch is created between your brain and your penis, you’ll likely lose your morning wood entirely if you don’t take steps to get the porn out of our your life.
And remember, medication is not the answer to this problem, because the issue isn’t your penis, its your mind and its lack of sensitivity to dopamine and other brain chemicals.
The drugs will give you an erection, but you’ll have no real desire to use it because sex drive requires the involvement of your mind….and chronic porn consumption blunts this process.
Estimates put porn induced cases of erectile dysfunction as high as 20%, which is drastically higher than it was prior to the explosion of internet pornography.
Porn is available now with just a click of a mouse and you need to exercise extreme willpower to say away from it if you’re addicted.
For most men, four to six weeks is about what it takes to start seeing morning wood again consistently, although some can start seeing improvement in a matter of days once they drop this destructive habit.
Many men make the mistake of attempting to use erection supplements to treat morning wood loss, but its almost impossible to get back on track until you address the root cause of your condition first.
But once you have addressed this cause, you’ll find that the supplements and other natural methods I recommend on this site will start working their magic for you quickly….
And once you get to this point…you’ll regain the ability to achieve hard erections AND you’ll also increase your desire to actually use them.
And if you think about, neither one of these is any good unless you have the other….
So always go after the root cause first.
