Many men have faced this problem where ejaculation occurs while sleeping and there is a very common myth in India that this nocturnal emission will cause infertility and thinning of the sexual organ. It is said that a single drop of semen is equal to 8 drops of blood, and so on.
This is a complete myth and none of these beliefs are true. Nocturnal emission does not cause any kind of infertility or thinning of the male sexual organ. This happens to all men and it is very normal. The reason behind night discharge or nocturnal emission could be any one from these:
- Most of the time, the semen which is collected just comes out. It can come out this way while sleeping because it cannot be stored indefinitely.
- A sexual fantasy before sleeping or a dream can also cause night discharge or nocturnal emission.
- An erection while sleeping can also cause night discharge or nocturnal emission.
It is a very normal and common thing to happen. Even masturbation during 2 to 3 times a day is very normal. It never causes infertility or thinness or weakness. But constantly worrying about it and becoming anxious about it can make a person mentally weak.
