Erections All Day Long

Published: May 14, 2012
Dear TeenHealthFX,

 

I am 15 and I have an embarrassing problem. I constantly get erections all day long, for no particular reason. My penis is actually short, 4 inches, so they usually aren't very noticeable but none the less, I am very self conscious about it. They are short but happen quite often. I was just wondering what might cause these and how to stop them.

Dear Erections All Day Long,

 

During the teenage years, many males get erections randomly and unexpectedly. They can happen frequently and without much warning. You could be talking on the phone, sitting in class, hanging out with friends, at the movies, etc. These erections are rarely controllable. While it might be embarrassing, it is a normal part of puberty. In time, your body's hormones will settle down and the frequency of the unplanned erections will slow down
