Cpap Therapy, Supplements, Morning Erections
« on: March 11, 2015, 10:44:14 pm »
Does anybody have any idea as to why morning erections come and go? When I first started my cpap therapy, the first thing I noticed was erections when I would get up to pee, which I have not experienced in many years. This would happen for 2 or 3 days, but then go away. I started taking extra zinc for a few nights. The erections would come back for a time, but would disappear. Why, O why do you elude me, morning erections !!?

I really don't even know if I need the cpap or not.  Started feeling really fatigued. A relative had one not in use. The rest is history. I still feel tired, but not as much as I used to. I tend to sleep better with the mask on, which is weird. the morning wood happens occasionally, and the relative doesn't need it back,so why not? I am 38, so maybe age is a difference.

You're a young guy right?  If so, it's probably dopamine related or hormonal...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

As a guy with T levels in the mid 300's, I can tell you that morning erections for me seem very random just like you describe.  I will have them for a few days at a time, then they seem to disappear for awhile.  I suspect hormonal fluctuations, which are also affected by stress, sleep and to a lesser extent food.  It is a bit maddening, I would agree.

That may be roughly where i crash with low T, if you can try and raise it a bit it may help.

Agreed.  My ranges have been 425-350 the last couple of years.  There are times when things seem fine, and other times I feel the full effects.  Tried many of the natural solutions, but not much bumps it.  HRT has been approved for me by my doc, so I will probably try it soon.
