Customer Question

The last month I have noticed I have softer erections. I am 20 years old. I have recently done a triplex(for my heart as I swim) and it was fine. Do I have a problem? I think that if I dont think about it for a week and dont mustarbate I wake up with a very hard erection but I am not sure for this. Could it be physical?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

anxiety can cause you to have softer erections

Dr. David :

if you are having hard morning erections, then that means everything is working right.

Dr. David :

it is not physical

it is psychological with anxiety causing your softer erections.

Sorry for bothering you. Is there a chance I have a hormone deficiency or anything like this?

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
if you are having morning erections and able to masturbate and climax now, then most likely you don't have a hormonal deficiency of testosterone

you can get your levels checked

but most likely it is normal.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am still worried about this as I have noticed that my morning erections are not very hard but I notice them when I am awake in the morning. Is there a chance it could be an early sign of diabetes or something like this or I should stop thinking about this completely? I have average weight.


 


Tahnk you

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
no. this is your anxiety getting out of control.

you can go get testing for diabetes, but this will most likely be normal

you need to stop worrying about this.
