Brief Answer:
Please provide some more information.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

What I understand is that you are having involuntary release of semen at night in sleep.

This is very common and there is nothing to worry about.

Please let me know whether

Are you married ?
Are you sexually active ?

Please reply so that I can guide you properly.

Brief Answer:
There is no need for medication.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing back.

As I have written earlier this is very common and faced many youths during their young age.

During day time when you are awake, your brain control your emotions and you have got command over any act.

During sleep when your brain relaxes, at times the control becomes weak and thoughts going in your subconscious mind may come up and you may be getting excited due to things that you might have seen during day time. You do not feel that excitement but the discharge of semen occurs due to that.

After age of about 14 years,when you attain puberty, under the influence of male hormones body starts producing semen regularly. This is a natural process and happens to all. At times due to above mentioned reason the semen may come out and that is absolutely normal.

There is no need of any medication for this.

Please try following which should help:

Wear loose clothes night
Avoid sleeping on sides and on your stomach
Avoid brain stimulants like soft drinks,tea/coffee etc after late evening
Take light diet,avoid spicy food.
Do regular exercise and remain physically fit and active.

I hope this helps and clarifies your apprehension

Brief Answer:
I do not think you need to consult anybody.

Detailed Answer:

Please relax.

When you are already informed and know all these things,there is no reason to get anxious.

All of the complaints that you have mentioned are due to associated anxiety and feeling of guilt ,they have nothing to do with your night fall.

I do not think you need to consult any body.

Still if you are very much concerned you can take advise from an urologist, who can reassure you in person.

hi im a 13 year old boy. and i have large lumps under my nipples and ive had them for more than a year and it says on health websites that your only supposed to have them for a couple months. They hurt when i barely touch them. i know its a puberty thing but i want to get rid of them ASAP.

Hi I used to have really good hair but lost most of it during puberty. I am now 46 years old and have severe hairfall also caused due to chemical treatments. My doctor advised me Follihair and have just started using it along with Becosules . I have noticed my urine has turned really yellow and I wonder if that is due to Follihair. Can you advise if that is the case and is that something I should worry about? Any advice on how to control my hair loss?

I am a 15 and a half year old boy and I masturbate every now and then. But I can never ejaculate! If I try, I just end up peeing a little bit. Does that mean that I'm sterile or that I'm a late developer? (By the way I am 5 foot 11 so it's not like I havent hit puberty yet....)
