Sorry TMI, but Why does my son get an erection when he poops?

Is this more common than I think it is?

  • Its actually pretty common. I used to know exactly why this happens, but I'm tired, my brain is in slow-mo, & I think I've purged that info long ago. If you ask your Dr & he acts like this is strange or unusual, I'd find a different Dr.

  • It's a guy thing. They are pushing and using their pelvic muscles, increasing blood flow.....think back to sex ed and you'll figure out the rest. LOL

  • My sons all did that when they were little, it's ok. Ask your Dr. My sons all stopped doing it when they were about 4-5. How old is your son?
