I’m guessing from your username that you are 45?

I’m 20 years older than you and I still wake with a full erection most mornings. If you are worried about this, maybe try some healthy lifestyle changes? And if you are lucky enough to get a doctors appointment, have a chat with him / her. Perhaps you will be offered a blood test for testosterone levels.

Agree with the previous reply. At 45 you're a bit young for that. I'm 70 and still wake up hard every morning. Stress, bad diet, overwork, alcohol or if you're on any medication can all be a factor to losing erection. I would definitely have a chat with your GP.

I'm 60 and have had erections but not full ones. As you age you're more than likely to start to lose your edge. Some earlier than others. Visit your urologist and get some advice. They should be able to help you. For those that have it every morning, I wouldn't want that. Doesn't mean they're better than the rest. You didn't say if you're married or not. I would say if you're single you may not get as many erections as those who are married.

before the circumcision I hardly did, now I keep getting them 😂. Stitches maybe no idea. But I’m sure I’ll go back to normal… or I’m noticing it because it wakes me up maybe.

I’m 67 and wake up hard every morning. There are health habit issues that can impact this and the quality of sleep matters too. If you’re not getting enough REM sleep, that can make a difference.

It is quite normal

BexyBoy profile image

I'm 72 - Last few years with prostate enlargement, medication that alters hormones and blood pressure medication I only wake up hard once a week or so. Doesn't bother me or my wife, who doesn't have a high libido, so we're gradually adjusting to general affection rather than moments of high passion!
