Morning Wood: Waking Up Without a Hard-on the First Sign of Low Testosterone

Remember the mornings when you woke up with a steam pipe? In your youth, throughout your 20s and most of your 30s, your penis was awake before you and rolling over to hit the snooze button was even a chore with that hard-on. But as middle-age began to sneak up on you, those instances became less frequent and if you’re a ‘fortysomething,’ probably gone for quite some time. But not forever.

One of the first signs of having a low testosterone level is a lack of morning erections. Plain and simple. Sure, there are many other symptoms such as fatigue, low libido and energy, etc. but this is one that will – or better said, will not – hit you in the face each and every day.

Get your ass over to your doctor’s office and have him draw blood to see what your testosterone levels are. Anything lower than 500 ng/dL and you have probably gone a long time since they were even in the low end of what is considered normal.

Some doctors feel that 250-to-500 is the safe zone but don’t settle for that. You  – nor he or she – would be fine with a blood pressure just under what is considered high, right? So if you’re going to go on testosterone replacement therapy, do it right and get those levels in the 850-to-1,000 area.

And you’ll know when it has kicked in – first thing in the morning. Welcome back.
