You will not always have one. It depends a lot on your sleep pattern. I would not worry about it.

Re: erections in the morning

Nocturnal (night) erections occur when you dream. So, if you wake up in the morning with an erection, it was from the dream you were having right before you woke up. Keep in mind that you don't always remember dreams or remember even having them.

So, if you wake up with a flacid penis, you just weren't dreaming when you woke up.

Re: erections in the morning

I sleep on my stomach. No wonder I always wake up in a TeePee tent position.

As a teen, it seemed like I always had morning erections. If not, then in the shower. The penis of a teen is nearly uncontrollable!
Even after being married for 2 years and in my mid-twenties, I get them every now and then, but usually not after an evening of sex.

Most men get them fairly frequently. Nothing you can do to "get" or "not get" them. It's not something you have control over.

Re: erections in the morning

I've also read that it helps keep the penis healthy, by engorging it with fresh blood. So it is a good thing.

It can be awkward when you share bathrooms in the morning, like in shool dorms or at home. But I got over it pretty quick. After all, it's a natural thing.

Some of the guys at the college dorms teased me about it at first.. but then got used to it. Plus I gave them crap back, like hey "at least mine works" or other smart remarks. And what was funny about it is that as time when on, you started to see a few more because people shut up about it.

It's amazing sometimes how shameful we get about our bodies and it's functions.

Re: erections in the morning

If you are sexually healthy, you will get morning erections, but they will not always be at that time of the morning when you awake. You may awaken at 8:00 am but your erection occurred at 6!

Re: erections in the morning

It is a way for your body to "hold it" because you need to go to the bathroom OR you dreamt something.
