What would cause constant erections? They're becoming more and more embarassing. I'm recouping from back surgery and have to go to yoga and aquatic therapy, yesterday a problem arose during yoga. My wife feels it's been happening more then ever and the urges are also becoming constant. This isn't a joke, it's for real. I'm not really in pain but can't sleep to well at night and the urges are very unsettling at times. When I was younger the doctor told me my sperm count was very low and it would be hard to have a child yet I've a seven year old now and I'm also 50 years old myself. I've always been healthy and love the outdoors, quite active, more than most my age. This isn't something that started recently but has been going on for a while. I don't know whether the urges cause the erections or if the erections cause the urges. My old doctor just said to count my blessings (looking for new doctor), when I explained to him in the past. As I said, this isn't a joke, somethings not right. We're having sex every day of the week and even afterwards I'll hold an erection for sometime. This is starting to put a strain on my relationship with my wife. Anyone with any ideas or ever heard of this before?

  • Hi this is lisa, it sounds very serious. the problem could very well be psychological. especially if you ahve been very stressed in the past few months. Having a lot of sex may seem to satisfy your urges but im sure they always come back after a while. my fiance sometimes stays erect for about 15-20 mins after sex but it doesn't wrorry him in any way. i suggest getting to a more...serious doctor and find out whats going on. meanwhile dont worry, it doesnt sound life threatening!
