Anyone Else Blaming Their Reduced Deep Sleep For Their Erectile Dysfunction?
Ever since the onset of my insomnia 3 years ago I have been suffering from gradually worsening erectile dysfunction which has now finally completely gone dead. I always linked the two as I'm a thin active guy with no other physical issues. I get severely fragmented sleep with multiple awakenings, and my zeo shows the sleep averages at around 55 minutes per night of 7 hour sleep. I always assumed that may be this 55 minutes was too low and therefore causing my erectile dysfunction. However many others on the internet also have posted that they only get around an hour of deep sleep, such as this one:
I also found some lucky bastards (also using Zeo) that have posted that they get 2.5 hours of deep sleep http://forum.bulletproofexec.com/index.php?/topic/15400-best-most-accurate-sleep-tracking-technology/ and 2.3 hours of deep sleep http://forum.bulletproofexec.com/index.php?/topic/3977-supplementsnootropics-for-focus-and-sleep-reduction/
It is unknown to me whether the 1 hour deep sleep group faces erection problems like me. For those interested here the pubmed article 15504427 saying that erectile dysfunction from otherwise unidentified physical causes (called psychogenic) is linked to reduced delta wave sleep. This article has been the holy grail for me all these 3 years, and I have been unsuccessfully trying to increase my deep sleep hoping to fix my erection problems, but now I get confused after seeing the postings by the 1 hour group, whether it is normal after all to have only that much deep sleep.
Can people here please post their observations of any observed link between their deep sleep amount and erections? This is killing me and my family, and any help or kind words is much appreciated.
