I am 21 year old i'm suffering from the problem of night fall. Earlier I used to masturbate but I left that habit. But now I have a problem of night fall. I'm afraid that I will be suffering from it all my life. And I always fear that it will weaken my body.

Dear Lybrate user, problem of nightfall needs an equal amount of attention and treatment as any other physical or mental illness. Nightfall is regular amongst adolescents but as an adult, if it happens too often, it is always better to speak to your physician about it. Main cause of nightfall is excessive masturbation due to this habit the veins of penis became weak day by day and cause consistent nightfall and most important it effects your future that you will never become father because of the problem of low sperm count. So it's very important to go through with clinical test as soon as possible.
It's natural for an unmarried male to have nightfall if he doesn't masturbate. It's a myth that nightfall causes weakness. It has no side effects. Moreover masturbation also doesn't have side effects. You need not worry or be afraid. Either start masturbation again as it's considered healthy or wait till you start having regular sex.
