How To Stop Wet Dreams?

How To Stop Wet Dreams?

Understand why wet dreams occur. While you're asleep, involuntary ejaculations will sometimes occur when your genitals become stimulated by your clothes or sleeping position, resulting in orgasm and ejaculation. They may even happen when no stimulation to the genitals occurs. Your body produces semen and seminal fluid whether you like it or not, whether you're sexually active or not, whether you masturbate regularly or not. Your body does this regardless of religious or cultural considerations.

  • If you're not orgasming regularly, but still are becoming aroused, excess seminal fluid from the prostate can make your genitals sensitive and tender, which may make wet dreams more likely.

Your body does this regardless of religious or cultural considerations.

  • If you're not orgasming regularly, but still are becoming aroused, excess seminal fluid from the prostate can make your genitals sensitive and tender, which may make wet dreams more likely.

Understand when wet dreams occur. During puberty, hormones ramp up the production of sperm in the body, making wet dreams more likely during the early teenage years. Typically, a wet dream happens while you're asleep, but ejaculation sometimes may occur at other times you experience involuntary sexual stimulation. You might sleep through a wet dream or you might wake up instantly. You may have an erection when you experience a wet dream, or you may not.

  • According to statistics, more than 80% of men experience at least one wet dream in their lifetime. The frequency of these was .36 times per week. This means that men who reported having wet dreams had, on average, one wet dream every three weeks or so.
  • Some men experience involuntary ejaculations in adolescence and then report that these wet dreams taper off into adulthood. Some men experience wet dreams regularly throughout their lives, regardless of frequent or infrequent sexual activity, while some men never experience them at all.
  • Wet dreams are normal. However, excessive wet dreams may need to be addressed by a doctor.
  1. Learn common myths about wet dreams. Wet dreams are not a sign of any physiological or psychological abnormality or condition. They are normal. In fact, they’re a perfectly natural sign that your reproductive system is functioning properly. In other words, wet dreams are not "a problem," outside of the embarrassment and the mess.
    • Some people used to think that wet dreams were a sign of "spermatorrhea" or "seminal weakness.” This is something that has absolutely no grounding in empirical science and is now classified as an "imaginary disease." There is no such thing as seminal weakness.
  2. It is also a myth, however, that males "must ejaculate" regularly to get rid of built-up sperm. It's true that "unused" semen is absorbed back into the body and that you don't "need" to ejaculate regularly to live a healthy and fulfilling life. However, some men do report fewer wet dreams when they are having more orgasms from sexual activity – whether masturbation or with a partner.

Sexual Weakness & Night Fall - How Homeopathy Can Be Of Help?

Nightfall is a quite common issue among males especially those who are in adolescence or young adulthood. Nightfall seems a very embarrassing medical condition for adolescents as they are not aware of what is happening to them and they are not even comfortable for discussing this with their family members or friends. Nightfall is referred to as a condition where the male ejaculate unknowingly or without any desire during the sleeping or in the dreaming state. This condition can prevail for the whole life and may get resolved if one starts taking the medication.

It is considered a sexual problem only if it continues to exist even after young adulthood. Also, it is a reason for concern if the nightfall is occurring quite frequently. Also, the frequency of nightfall varies from individual to individual as one person may get it once in two-three weeks, or someone can experience this condition every week. Nightfall is also called wet dreams or nocturnal pollution. These can also be said as the spontaneous orgasmic state which occurs involuntarily.

  • As soon as a male person reaches the age of puberty, then the testicles start producing sperms and if a person does not involve in any sexual activity, then the nightfall occurs so that the old sperms can get removed from the body.
  • When a person engages in the constant rubbing of their reproductive organs by the bed sheet or mattresses, then also chances of nightfall increases.
  • Nocturnal emissions can occur as a result of sexual weakness in the nerves of the male reproductive system.


During the nightfall, a person may experience symptoms such as weakness in memory, lethargy or tiredness in the body thereby decreasing the efficiency of the reproductive system, sad mood, lack of happiness, racing heartbeat, anemia, and so on.

Homeopathy does not only treat the physical symptoms of any disease or a disorder but also helps in gaining an insight about the person’s mental state and help him to cope with the circumstances.

The Sexual Health Guide Recommended by the Penis

The Sexual Health Guide Recommended by the Penis

The Sexual Health Guide Recommended by the Penis


When Doctor Penis suggests that it's time to engage in sexual activity, most men would do well to heed the call. After all, Doctor Penis is not only, well, a penis, but he also understands that indoor sports offer some unique sexual health benefits. Even if most men already find sex to be intensely enjoyable, it's encouraging to know that proper penis care and usage can be a great long-term health investment: one that will outlast the pleasure of an orgasm.

So what are some of these benefits, Doctor Penis?

A Fitter Body.

Having regular sex can be a fantastic full body workout for any man. Plenty of guys will work themselves into a healthy sweat with all the vigorous thrusting that accompanies sex, increasing their heart rates, and burning some spare calories in the process. Granted, sexual exercise alone will only burn about five calories per minute, but depending on the amount of sexual activity that any given man enjoys in his day-to-day routine, those calories can add up quickly. Plus, maintaining all those positions will often strengthen various muscles groups - including some that most men don't even think to train at the gym.

A Stronger Immune System.

Studies have shown that people who have sex regularly take fewer sick days, suggesting that healthy sexual activity can do wonders for the average man's immune system. Of course, sex should be supplemented with eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and using proper protection when engaging in erotic play. But rest assured, all those orgasms could offer extra protection come cold season.

Decreased Blood Pressure and Heart Attack Risk.

Sexual intercourse can have a positive effect on a person's blood pressure, leading to a lower systolic reading -the reading that measures the pressure in the arteries as the heart beats. By reducing blood pressure and boosting the heart rate, an active sex life can also lessen the risk of suffering a heart attack. This is especially true for men. Sexual activity increases the production of testosterone, which plays an important role in keeping the heart healthy and decreasing the risk of osteoporosis.

Lowered Prostate Cancer Risk.

The Journal of the American Medical Association published a report which argued that men who ejaculate 21 times or more each month have a substantially lower risk of developing prostate cancer. The type of sexual activity that precedes these ejaculations doesn't matter: intercourse, oral sex, masturbation, and even wet dreams qualify. The bottom line is, keeping those pipes clean may be the key to maintaining a healthy prostate.

Improved Outlook and Mood.

Stress and tension are among the most serious health problems faced by men of modern society. Sex, especially sex that builds to an orgasm, can be an effective release valve for stress and tension. It can also help many men sleep better at night by releasing a soothing hormone called prolactin into the body. That's why squeezing in some great sexual play - with or without a partner - the night before a big presentation at work or a long trip can put many men on pathways to success.

For most men, a healthy penis will result in a healthier state of being. In addition to engaging in regular sexual activity, penis health can also be augmented through the daily use of a superior penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil). When searching for the right cream, men should look for products that include alpha lipoic acid to help prevent premature aging of penis cells. Ideally, the cream will also contain vitamin C, an important structural component of blood vessels that can improve blood flow to the penis tissue.

The problem of wet dreams is characterized by the unknowingly and involuntarily ejaculation while asleep. It can be seen in both men and women but its more common among male and rare in a female. During the nocturnal emission, the men may wake up and again go back to sleep.A nightfall or nocturnal emission is considered to be a problem only if it is very frequent or if it is persistent even when the male has crossed adolescent age. In either of these case, it is essential to seek a doctor's advice. 

Frequent masturbation, watching pornography or such pictures, discussing sex or adult talks makes a person victim of the nightfall. Also, certain medicines or drugs such as sedatives, tranquilizers, and high BP medicines can lead to nocturnal emission. Apart from this the mental state of mind (Stress, depression, anxiety etc.) and also no or less physical activity (Obesity, long sitting hours, inactivity) of a person accounts for wet dreams. 

Treatment Options - 

1. A proper diet can ensure strength that you might have lost due to nightfall. 

2. Practicing Yoga and meditation regularly before going to sleep can also help in getting rid of the emissions. 

3. Consuming ripe leaves of bottle gourd can help in curing insomnia and getting rid of the nocturnal emissions. 

Other ways to treat nightfall is using natural or homemade remedies. There are no side effects for such treatment methods. 

Yogurt - Should have at least 2-3 bowls of yogurt a day. 

Avoid watching Porn - Too much of porn arouses you sexually. So it is advised not to watch porn. 

Sage tea - Having two cups of sage tea a day will reduce the chances of nocturnal emission. 

Gooseberry - Popularly known as amla acts as an anti-oxidant and helps in reducing the nightfall. Gradually the wet dreams problem will be solved. 

Bathing - It is advice to take bath before you go to bed. It helps you have a sound sleep. A sound sleep is very important for avoiding nightfall. 

Here are few myths about nightfall that every man should know: 

1. Nightfall in men is wrong and abnormal: There is nothing wrong or abnormal about nightfall; it is a normal part of growing up and becomes rarer as a male grows up. Rare nightfall in men is not harmful and one need not feel guilty. Nightfall is just spontaneous tendency to empty the reservoir of sperms in adolescents. Nightfall occurs only in males: This is one of the myths about nightfall; the fact is even females could have a spontaneous orgasm in sleep without being aware of it as their vagina just gets wet and lubricated. Men may wake up from sleep due to increased wetness.

2. Nightfall in men is a sign of illness: This is a myth that most people have; however it is a natural process that occurs in most men and women unless it occurs very frequently. Nightfall with high frequency can affect the sexual and mental health of the male or female. You can try out nightfall treatment. 

3. Nightfall can make you weak: One of the favorite myths about nightfall; actually nightfall occur when there is absence of sex or masturbation to release the sperms and it is a natural way to remove the excess sperms from the testicular sac. However having excessive and frequent nightfall can decrease the immunity of the person. Nightfall in men can lead to reduced sperm count: This applies to only increased and frequent nightfall in men; it is a popular feared myth and nightfall does not reduce sperm count. It is a natural body mechanism to throw out the overflowing content from testicular sac and induce the regular formation of healthy sperms. 

4. Nightfall reduces male organ size: One of the popular myths about nightfall; nightfall does not shrink the male organ. The truth is that there is nothing that can increase or decrease the size of the male organ; also sexual health does not depend on the size of the male organ.

Dhat Syndrome - How It Affects You?

Dhat Syndrome - How It Affects You?

While some diseases and medical conditions affect people all over the world, there are some that are prevalent only amongst a certain cultural group or region. Dhat roga or Dhat syndrome is one such culturally bound syndrome that affects men in the Indian subcontinent region including India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. In some cases, it may also affect the women of this region.

The word ‘Dhat’ originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Dhatu’ meaning ‘elixir of the body’. The condition was first described in 1960 by Dr Narendra Wig as a condition marked by psychosomatic symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety and sexual dysfunction caused by the passing of a whitish fluid or whitish particles that are believed to be semen in the urine. Other symptoms that person with this condition might express include weakness, lack of appetite, poor concentration and guilt.

How dhat is different from sperm leakage and premature ejaculation?
Dhat is the name given to the collective symptoms, such as sexual, psychological, and physical related to the passing of a whitish fluid, believed to be semen in urine.  This is usually followed by psychological distress and anxiety due to semen-loss in patients. The word ‘dhat’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘dhatu’ which means ‘metal’ and/or ‘elixir’. Whereas, sperm leakage is a sexual dysfunction which happens due to weak parasympathetic nerves. What happens here is that seminal fluid oozes out of a flaccid penis. This is said to happen due to over masturbation. Dhat, on the other hand, is passing of seminal fluid in urine. And, premature ejaculation is something that happens at the time of coitus. In this, the male is unable to sustain an erection long enough for penetration and ‘comes’ prematurely. In this condition, penetrative sex doesn’t happen or happens for too short a period of time to satisfy the partner.

In the dhat syndrome, males usually believe that they have premature ejaculation and suffer from impotence apart from just leaking the white seminal fluid during urination. This loss frightens them into developing a sense of depression as the fear of semen loss is very strong in the subcontinent. Young men from a rural background or of a lower socioeconomic status typically complain of this syndrome. It may be further categorised under three heads:

  • Only Dhat: In this case, the patients present with hypochondriacally oriented symptoms attributed to the loss of semen
  • Dhat accompanied by anxiety or depression: In this case depression or anxiety is the core condition that may be accompanied by Dhat
  • Dhat accompanied by sexual dysfunction: In such cases, the patient may complain of erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or other psychosexual dysfunction conditions such as depressive neurosis, somatoform/ hypochondriasis or anxiety neurosis.

Symptoms reported

  • Fatigue and listlessness
  • Appetite loss
  • Lack of physical strength
  • Poor concentration and forgetfulness
  • Guilt
  • Sexual dysfunction

Common misconceptions about the disease
There are a number of misconceptions about dhat. Most patients think that the semen loss during urination will make them impotent or someway weaker sexually. This anxiety can be traced back thousands of years to certain Ayurvedic treatises in which the loss of a single drop of semen, the most precious body fluid, was enough to weaken the whole body. This cultural belief leads to a lot of stigma, guilt and depression related to dhat.

The morbid hypochondriacal fear that is associated with dhat syndrome is also stuff that myths are made of. Patients believe that dhat will irreversibly harm their bodies and they will be unable to produce male offspring, and that dhat will cause a death of offspring at an early age, lead to the birth of a malformed fetus; or cause anaemia, leprosy, tuberculosis, permanent impotency, and shrinking of the penis.

Factors apart from reproductive health which results in Dhat roga

  • Nerves are responsible for keeping the semen locked  in during a normal state in men. When nerves get weak, semen is discharged during urination or while doing normal activities in the form of a white discharge, called dhat.
  • This problem further strains other organs like liver and a poorly functioning liver increases weakness related to muscles and also reduces energy levels, fat metabolism, and contaminates blood.
  • Prostatitis, a disease of the prostate gland which secretes seminal fluids can also aggravate dhat.
  • A weak digestive system, prone to constipation and piles also causes dhat. This is seen as a white discharge while defecation.

Modern science has not been able to understand an organic evolution of this condition and hence has no form of medication to treat it. Hence, it is often considered a neurotic condition. According to Ayurveda, apart from excessive masturbation and a weak reproductive health, conditions such as weak digestion, constipation and prostatitis can also trigger the symptoms of Dhat roga.

Ayurveda believes that the body always functions as a complete entity and hence no condition can be isolated and treated. Hence when treating diseases, it approaches it through changes in the person’s diet, exercise and lifestyle, mental health and overall physical health. In the case of treatment for Dhat roga, it is important for the doctor to first correct the patient’s erroneous beliefs and listen to the person before medicating him.

Tips and treatments in Ayurveda
Ayurveda postulates leading a controlled sexual life to counteract dhat.

  • Charaka samhita postulates that semen is all pervasive within the body like "oil in the sesamic seed" and suggests one ejaculation per week in summer and 168 total yearly ejaculations as the optimal sexual frequency for males.
  • Over-indulgence in sex and especially masturbation can cause an imbalance in the dhatus with a resultant physical illness called dhat.

Ayurvedic cure

  • Use herbs which enhance energy and performance of the reproductive system. These herbs will remove debility and weakness and will elevate levels of testosterone hormone in the body to rejuvenate and re-energize the reproductive system.
  • These pills also contain herbs which strengthen, repair and stimulate nerves and maintain an optimum supply of energy throughout the day to prevent semen discharge with urine.
  • Shilajit is a herb that is known for enhancing sexual potency. Shilajit capsules come loaded with herbs which supplement minerals and nutrients in a bio-available form to remove deficiencies improving the functioning of organs and muscles to counteract fatigue.

Regular counselling is often advocated in such cases along with anti-anxiety and anti-depression medication. Medication may also be prescribed to keep semen from leaking into the urine. The patient is also taught to relax so as to ensure the smooth functioning of the genitourinary system.
