Is it typical to get an erection every morning?

There are no set guidelines for how long a person should engage in sexual activity or keep their penis erect. The typical duration of an erection is between a few minutes to 30 minutes. If an erection persists for a prolonged period of time, usually more than four hours, the lack of oxygen might begin to injure or kill penile tissues and untreated priapism can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Morning erections are thought to be caused by hormone changes that take place as you sleep as well as a full bladder pressing on the nerves that cause an erection.
