Increased testosterone levels

Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in men, and its levels are highest during the early morning hours. This increase in testosterone levels can cause an erection, even if you are not sexually aroused. This is why men often wake up with an erection in the morning.


REM sleep

REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep is a type of sleep that occurs in cycles throughout the night. During REM sleep, the body is relaxed, and the brain is active. This is also the stage of sleep when men experience the most erections. The combination of increased testosterone levels and REM sleep can lead to a morning erection.


Full bladder

A full bladder can also cause an erection in men. When the bladder is full, it puts pressure on the nerves that are responsible for controlling erections. This pressure can cause an erection, even if you are not sexually aroused. So, if you wake up with an erection, it might be a sign that you need to use the bathroom.
