A nocturnal emission is an involuntary emission of semen during sleep. This is also referred to as a wet dream. This is very common in pre teen and teenage males. During puberty, boys are likely to have nocturnal emissions. However, the emissions may happen into a man’s adult life.
The emission can happen with or without an erection.
Nocturnal emissions usually have little to do with semen production. Instead, they occur as a result of a nervous system response to inflammatory hormone production. This is a natural way for the body to relieve excess sexual tension. The more a man ejaculates during sexual intercourse, the less likely he is to experience nocturnal emissions.
These emissions are not harmful to the body. However, they can be a nuisance.
Since there is no danger in nocturnal emissions, it is not crucial that you find a solution. If the condition is bothersome and is causing you stress, there are some ways to help alleviate the condition.
By voluntarily ejaculating, you can control when the act happens. A healthy sex life includes intercourse. Through intercourse with your partner, you can be in charge of your emissions. This will reduce the occurrence of nighttime emissions.
If you do not have a sexual partner, masturbation will achieve the same thing. We caution you to use masturbation only when you feel necessary. Many people believe the ritual can become habit forming and can lower your interest in finding an actual partner.
Try to get to the root of your stress. Learn how to tame and control the stressors of your life. This will help you feel less compelled to masturbate. Ask yourself if you are sexually repressed or suppressed. If you feel you are, learn why and how to move forward in dealing with that repression.
Essential oils can be helpful in reducing our stress. When inhaled, these scents can calm the body and help to release built up mental and physical tension. Marjoram oil is very beneficial.
Some herbs that can do the same thing include:
- Black Walnut Hull
- Lycii berry
