Did you know we get about 3 to 5 erections during the night? It’s the way our body keeps our penis healthy when not ‘in use’! The erections you get at night flush out the chambers and keep the internal tissues healthy. The morning erection is simply the one we’re most likely to notice.

What if you don’t get morning erections?

If you don’t get morning erections then it’s a good idea to see your doctor for a full check up. It can be the first sign of blood vessel problems. The heart circulation can also be affected and cause a heart attack. This is easy to check and relatively easy to fix. So go to your doctor now.

What you can do about it

First off, visit your doctor for a check up. You can ask to try Viagra (Sildenafil). It is now off patent and has come down in price incredibly. There are also generic versions that are the same drug and are even cheaper.

We use a lot of Viagra as a first step in penile rehabilitation. If Viagra doesn’t work for you, there are other treatments available. Give me a call and I’ll talk you through your options.
