MORNING WOOD

Hello everyone,

Day 94 or my hardmode journey.. and I’ve pretty much flatlined this whole time. I got ultrasound test for blood flow and blood work done for testostrone and the results came back fine. Around day 70 mark i would get strong MWs and nocturnal erections most days until around day 90 even though PIED was still there.. and ive been in a terrible flatline since. Very sluggish MW and dead dick. Does MWs come back and then disappear again for anyone? I thought MWs do not have to do much with dopamine but its testostrone related? I am so confused and Its really worrisome.. please help!

Congratulations on that streak but 94 days is long enough to fully recover, for how long have you been dealing with PIED?

For about a year, and got a few streaks in and relapsed, got back on the horse on february and been going strong since. I’ve read stories that younger people take longer to recover so I’m still not losing hope, but its scary for sure.

Yea, it sure is scary, how did the issues start?

I was suddenly feeling very numb, depressed and anxious. Then my penis would just feel lifeless and small. After a ton of research only conclusion i could think of was porn addiction and PIED. I started when i was 10-11 and didnt stop until i was 24.. so thats quite a long time. I’m 25 now and have been on this journey since then. 13 years of PMO wont be healed in 90 days.

Hello iam at day 41, even i had 3 morning woods continuously this week.my morning woods count per week has been increased.but yesterday i had phone sex with my gf and i touch my penis due to which no morning wood yesterday which made me realise not to touch dick.let it get hard himself.
Broo, even i am overthinking and sometimes even think of giving up.but keep on going brother.
Yesterday i got fast internet.the first thing came in my mind was to watch porn but anyhow i avoided.so Don't think too much.let the process going.
Regarding your question of getting sluggish MW,yes even i get morning wood sometimes hard and sometimes weak and when i sttod up looses it all within a minute.i think it's all part of the process.our brain is conditioning again and adapting our new way of living so it will take time..
YOU WILL HEAL!!

Thanks for the support man. I believe we will both heal, and be even much stronger than before once this is all over. I saw you ask gabe whether phone sex with gf is okay during reboot, and I am almost certain that it will hinder your progress. It may not be as bad as PMO but it stimulates similar brain pathways that we are trying so hard to erase. I know its so difficult to not masturbate when having sexy video calls with girls. It might be best to stay away for it until you feel more confident in your healing.. best of luck my friend.
 
Morning wood in my experience has nothing to do with pied or ed. I have pied, but there are days when i have morning wood, but my dick is dead and unresponsive during the day, also there are days without morning wood, but spontaneous erections and libido during the day.

i know exactly what you mean. Its so random its frustrating. But its also common that PMO addicts dont get MW. And it returning and happening more consistently has to be a good sign.
 
I used to have very less MW but since i stop watching porn and rarly masturbated in two months.m having good morning woods meaning somewhere at some point it's a progress and such things itself motivates us.even my doctor told me that morning wood is a good sign.
 
I used to have streaks of 11 days of continuous and good MW. Then a break of one or two days and then the streak resumed. However. After day 83 they completely disappeared and haven't returned yet. I'm at day 92 now. Just feels weird waking up every day without one getting scared and worried. Mainly because judging by the speed that I was recovering before I thought by this time the duration of my MW would be longer and longer but they've just completely disappeared. I know recovery is non linear but at this time it just feels like it's moving in a negative direction. To be fair I don't think I was in a flatline though because even on the days that I didn't get MW I could get 100% erections with no fantasy and just minimal touch.

for me, id get some some days and others not. still do. im not sure just how directly related the two are... but i do remember being in a flatline and just not giving a shit about my cock, i hated my cock, so MW or no MW, didnt give a fuck. it could do what it wants just let me get on with my life! then id get them be like, "oh... youve decided to take up i see...". best not to really think too hard about it or get worried about it, it will fix itself naturally over time.

Don’t worry!!!

i was in your same shoes at day 92 of hardmode. I honestly felt the worst ive ever felt during my journey around 70-80days and then 90-96 days.
MW disappears, depression, anxiety, even headaches and fatigues. I’m on day 100 now and I am starting to feel like an absolute beast. Insane MW and just so much life energy and libido. Right now these days seem to come and go about every other day but it is definitely starting to take over. Staying away from triggers has gotten much difficult but I am staying strong.. no guarantee when it will be for you but trust me that it will come. You have to trust the process. The night is darkest just before dawn. KEEP GOING.
 
Thanks man. Today just felt like the worst in my recovery yet. Even the anxiety part which I never had before. No motivation. I never had a feeling like this before in my reboot but it started after day 83. Feels weird. But hope this ends soon. Listening to your advice does help a lot! Cheers.
 
Did it get any better?
It did! Just after this post. MW almost every day. First Spontaneous erection in a long time. Duration of erection after standing up increased slightly. I noticed that the more I indulge in YouTube and the like the worse my symptoms become so cutting that off Has helped too
