    ZMA and Erections

    I'm 19 right now. I've been working out for about 2 years.

    From about the age of 16-17 I've noticed rather weak erections... I was convinced it was a mental thing, but lately I don't even get that many erections in my sleep.

    For the past 3 months, I started taking ZMA (Zinc Magnesium Asparate) and to my surprise, after about 3 days, I started getting massive erections. I was also extremely horny and wat not.

    This went on for the next 3 months, but now they have severely subdued. Even though I've been taking the ZMA pills, my sex drive has gone back to normal and so have my erections.

    I don't think it's right to start taking Tribulus and other sexual supplements at my age, but I took ZMA since it's a vitamin/mineral...

    Does anyone know why the ZMA worked? (increased testostrone maybe?)... and what I can do to maintain a healthy sex drive/erection?

    Btw, I'm not fat or anything. I'm 6'2 weighting around 175lbs, bodyfat of 8-9%, which has been my natural bodyfat for my whole life.

    You might have had a zinc deficiency.

    Are you taking a multi-vitamin?

    What does your diet look like?

    But if I have a Zinc Deficiency, why did the ZMA work at first and now it doesn't work anymore? I haven't made any strange dietary changes lately.

    Basically I just eat whatever my parents cook. And lots of it too.

    I am in fact taking a multi vitamin but it is one of those cheap centrum 1 a day...

    I would see an endocrinologist and have your hormonal levels tested.

    an appointment will take weeks, if not months to make with my crappy doctor..

    did anyone have any similar experiences? erection problems that they were able to fix? any insight would be appreciated..

    agreed, but your local family doc can do this test.

    why? you make an appt. go have blood drawn and get the results in about 3-4 days, pretty simple.

    i have this clueless family doctor who doesn't know what he's doing, but my parents like him because he gives easy prescriptions, all you need to do is ask and he will give it to yo u, even if its something that you don't really need..

    i need to change him though, he's an idiot.

    anyone had an erection issues that they were able to resolve?

    the bloodwork looks fine though, the doctor looks puzzled at it and would say it's all in my head...

    but that doesn't make the dick go up... if i dont have any sexual activity for 4 or 5 days, then i am able to get a decent erection... but still limped quite a lot..

    otherwise, its pretty bad... if the minerals, vitamins and hormones are normal, it's kinda strange why it WORKED on ZMA ... and why now that effect has disappeared or diminished..

    dude, at 19 your test levels should be very high, you should have a raging hard-on every morning to the point where it's hard to piss, you should be so horny that every chick you see you think about sticking it in her, if this is not the case you have an issue!

    go see a urologist if you don't want to have your family doc do the blood work, but either way you need to get your hormones checked out, particularly your testosterone levels.

    definately not like that man.. i wake up once in a while with erections but they go away by the time i make my way to the toilet which takes about a minute..

    also, i can't get an erection from just looking at a woman, wether she's naked or not.. (and im not gay either).. it's just that she has to do some stroking before it gets up.. just looking at a girl naked doesn't get me excited, even if she's gorgeous and it's the first or 2nd time i'm with her.. and i'm not nervous when i'm naked or any of that bullshit either.. it's just the way it is..

    but on ZMA, I would wake up with a boner every morning and it would take a few minutes till it would go down and i would get pretty hard and didn't require much stroking to get it going..

    maybe i do need an urologist..

    It is impossible for me to work with clients/patients when I am taking ZMA.....the erections are so hard and big that I can't do anything without feeling uncomfortable.
