Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been having nightfall issues for the last year. I used to masturbate daily two to three years ago. However, now I do not do it, but I have been having nightfall issues continuously, and my semen is a bit yellowish. Can this masturbation or nightfall cause muscle growth, memory loss, hair fall, or any other issues? I have been having these issues for the last one year. I am 20 years old.

Thank you.

I can understand your concern.

Wet dreams or nightfall called nocturnal emission is normal. It can be due to increased erotic stimulus mentally, physically, or visually without sex or masturbation. At this age, you will be having good testosterone production. There will be 20,000 sperm produced every minute and that is a lot of semen production, you need to let it out by masturbation or sex. If not, it will come out on its own when you are very much relaxed like in your sleep. Since you know the cause, treating it is easier. Reduce the frequency of the erotic stimulus, masturbation, or having sex. Some ways to reduce the frequent erotic stimuli are:

1. Limit the intake of caffeinated beverages and food late afternoon. Consuming caffeine before bedtime can stimulate the brain, causing erotic dreams.

2. Take a cold shower before bedtime. This decreases excessive sensitivity in the genital region.

3. Limit and control your stress levels. Stress can be a triggering factor. Hence to obtain a peaceful night’s sleep, keeping a check on your stress levels is necessary.

4. Avoid sleeping on your back or stomach. These positions are known to cause sleep orgasms. It is better to sleep on your side.

5. Exercise regularly, and keep your body and mind relaxed. Excessive tension, anxiety, or tiredness together elevate your chances of sleep orgasms.

6. Avoid watching and reading erotic content at night. These stimulate both your body and mind, resulting in wet dreams while you are asleep.

For a temporary solution, you can use tablet Pari 10 mg (Paroxetine 10 mg) once a night for 15 days. Consult your doctor and take the medicine accordingly. I suggest you do a semen analysis and review with reports.

I hope this information will help you. In case of further queries, please revert.

Thank you.
