having morning erections

As a starting point, there are a number of factors that influence nocturnal and morning erections; age, fitness, weight and whether or not you smoke being most important.

The lack of morning erections (and also nocturnal erections) is a sure sign that your testosterone/estradiol ratio is out of balance. Nearly always this is a sign that T is too low and E2 is too high. If you can, have your Dr. run tests for free-testosterone and estradiol. If your E2 is above 30, it's likely you'll not have morning "wood".

Low bio-available or free-testosterone can also effect morning wood, but this could be caused by elevated estrogens, which can cause the T/E2 ratio to be out of balance.


In the real world, most guys do better in the absolute range of 20-40 pg/mL of E2 & adjust accordingly. Bringing E2 down can be a bit tricky, but one way to start is to use Indolplex/DIM.

DIM is the secret behind the health benefits derived from cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and broccoli. But you'd have to eat pounds of these to equal the power of one BioDIM capsule. For men concerned about prostate health, and for women concerned about the array of effects resulting from midlife changes, BioDIM offers premier dietary support. No other product on the market gives you this level of cruciferous nutrition this easily.

Indolplex is a stable, bioavailable form of DIM for healthy estrogen metabolism in men and women. To receive the same benefits provided by one tablet of Indolplex, you'd need to consume at least two pounds of raw broccoli.


You can find similar products at health food stores and various online outlets


Take on tablet at dinner time. If you’re E2 is not too high, your night time and morning wood should start up strong in 2 weeks or less.

But, some symptoms of too much E2 can be the same as the symptoms of too little (i.e. no wood), but you can fine tune, if you correlate your symptoms/feelings with blood tests. Too bad it doesn't seem more precise, but there are so many different things that affect health & mood than the *number* of hormones & neurotransmitters - the *number* of receptors for said hormones & neurotransmitters can vary among individuals, too.

Most General Practitioners know very little about this subject, so it's wise to do your own research and go to your Dr. with materials you can provide him/her (or send them ahead of time) so you can have a meaningful discussion. Some Dr.s are quite adverse to having patients that know more than they do on a subject, so use care in addressing the subject. You may have to do some Dr. shopping to find one that will really listen and work with you on getting your levels in balance.


Good Luck! I wish you well in finding an answer to your lack of morning erections.
