Nocturnal Emissions

Nocturnal Emissions occur when whitish fluid called semen is released through the penis while a boy or a man is sleeping. Nocturnal emissions are most common during teenage and early adult years

It is associated with the fact that males typically get an erection often during sleep and the semen released owing to the direct result of the stimulation caused by either erotic dreams, or memories of waking sexual activities but many men claim to have had nocturnal emissions without accompanying erotic dreams and another common theory is that wet dreams are the way the body disposes of "built-up" semen.

How common is nocturnal emission?

The frequency of nocturnal emissions is highly variable. Some men have experienced large numbers of nocturnal emissions as teenagers, while some men have never experienced one in their lives

The usual rate of nocturnal emissions are once during 15-30 days are considered physiological (normal) while that occurring twice a week or more and associated with symptoms such as dizziness, weakness, insomnia, etc., are considered pathologic (abnormal)

Physical & psychological influences of excessive nocturnal emission:

Hormonal disorders (lower testosterone or androgen)

Abnormal sperm production or function (Most cases of male infertility are due to sperm abnormalities)

Impaired shape and movement of sperm (structure (morphology) of the sperm are abnormal or the movement (motility) is impaired)

Low sperm concentration (A normal sperm concentration is greater than or equal to 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen)

No semen (The absence of ejaculate may occur in men)

Sexual issues (Difficulties with the erection of the penis (erectile dysfunction), premature ejaculation)


Being underweight

Diminished confidence and self-esteem


Emotional upsets

Should nocturnal emission be treated?

Excessive nocturnal emission needs immediate medical assistance because it may lead to Hormonal disorders and decreased testosterone level can be the cause of the inability to achieve an erection.

Another major cause which of course tends to lead to low sperm concentration and a low sperm count is one cause of male infertility.

When to seek medical advice?

Talk with our doctor if nocturnal emissions occur twice a week or more.
