Common Causes of Nightfall Problem

After knowing various myths about wet dreams, now its time to find out the real reason behind the nightfall problem, so that a person can easily understand the issue and get the real treatment for these wet dreams reasons.

  • Excessive masturbation that weakens the nerves connecting the brain with the reproductive system
  • Men who indulge in excessive sex may have frequent sexual thoughts that can lead to nightfall
  • Excessive smoking and drinking are also a reason behind nightfall as it leads to nerve damage which is the primary cause of the condition
  • Lack of physical exercise and lethargy can also be responsible for nightfall

Nightfall benefits the body in several ways. The ejaculation of seminal fluid through the genitalia prevents the accumulation of seminal fluid and helps in the formation of new healthy seminal fluid. This process also helps in improving metabolism. However, excessive emissions during the night can have negative effects such as weakening of body organs and a decrease in their efficiency. It can also lead to other sexual disorders such as infertility and reduced levels of libido.
