Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
Frequency of erections in a 9 year old
my 7 year old son has erections in the middle of the night and in the morning..Why does my 9 year not seem to have any erections? I do not see an erection in the morning or ever at night?? any problems???? is this normal??? Thanks
Some boys will have erections all the time, whereas others may not seem to have any at all. This is entirely normal and has no impact on later function as an adult.
