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

nocturnal emission be treated?
emission needs immediate medical assistance because it may lead to Hormonal
disorders and decreased testosterone level can be the cause for inability to
