I woke up three hours ago and I still have an erection

Patient: I woke up three hours ago and I still have an erection what do I do

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Sometimes the erection can s tay on for a really long time, if it lasts beyond 4 hours, you need to go see a urologist. If you have a tight foreskin, it could be due to blockage of venous drainage or paraphimosis. This can be diagnosed only on physical examination.Hope this was helpful,Regards.
