It is common among men to have a morning penile erection. However, the report shows that there is nothing to worry about.

The medical term "nocturnal penile tumescence" commonly known as morning penile erection is not only a psychological occurrence. It can also lead to the sexual function of the patient.

Morning erections affect all males -- even males inside the womb and male children. On the female, it is also found but not commonly discussed. It is called the "nocturnal clitoral erection."

The penile erection happens in response to the complex effects of the nervous system and the endocrine system, which are the glands that secrete the hormones into the system on the blood vessels of the penis.

As follows, when sexually aroused, the message begins in the brain, then sends chemical messages to the nerves that are responsible for supplying the blood vessels of the penis. It then allows the blood to flow into the penis. The blood is then trapped in the penis' muscles, which cause the penis to expand. As a result, the erection occurs.

Writing for The Conversation, Director Of Medicine, from The Maitland and Kurri Kurri Hospital of the University of Newcastle Sergio Diez Alvarez, wrote that it has been suggested that "pitching tent" may be a system for alerting men of their full bladder overnight, as it often disappears after the bladder empties in the morning.

However, several hormones are linked in influencing the response of the brain, such as the main male hormone called the testosterone.

Meanwhile, the same mechanism could happen without the involvement of the brain, in an independent reflex action that is found in the spinal cord. It explains why in people who have a damaged spinal cord erections still occur. Also, people can get erections even if they are not sexually aroused.

In line with this, the ability to have erections is linked to good heart health. The presence of nocturnal erections is generally accepted to be good news, according to IFL Science.

Thus, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important in preventing and even revising erectile dysfunction. Experts suggested to eat healthy, maintain a healthy weight and exercise. Avoid alcohol and smoking.
