Xiaofeng, who is in the second year of high school, has always been a student of good character and learning in the class, but recently he has always been inattentive, lethargic in class, and his test scores have also declined significantly. So the head teacher called him to the office to find out why. Xiaofeng couldn’t withstand the painstaking persuasion of the class teacher, and finally hesitated to speak out the confusion that had been suppressed in his heart recently.
On the early morning of the weekend a month ago, Xiaofeng prepared to get up for morning reading as usual, but once again found that his underwear was sticky, and there was a trace similar to a “map” on the bed sheet, and the ground became red and red. The two roommates who had already gotten up saw his embarrassment and said, “Don’t be embarrassed, we knew it a long time ago.” The roommate told Xiaofeng that this was nocturnal emission, and they had both. It’s just that they are “half-monthly”, and Xiaofeng seems to be “weekly”.
Later, Xiaofeng found out that he was really a “weekly”. He began to wonder why he had spermatorrhea so frequently? Will it rob me of my energy? Is there anything wrong with excessive spermatorrhea? Xiaofeng was very entangled about this. He wanted to tell his parents but was ashamed to tell him. He had to suppress the matter in his heart, causing his mind to be dizzy and unable to concentrate all day long.
Experts explain their doubts
Nocturnal emission can basically be said to be a physiological phenomenon. About 90% of boys after entering puberty have had nocturnal emission. Many boys, due to lack of sexual knowledge, will regard the physiological phenomenon of spermatorrhea as a symptom and worry. Therefore, we must first understand the cause and mechanism of spermatorrhea in order to treat it correctly.
What is nocturnal emission
Nocturnal emission refers to a state in which semen flows out automatically without sexual intercourse or masturbation. Nocturnal emission can occur during sleep, and the semen traces left on the bed sheet are very similar to a map, so spermatorrhea during sleep is sometimes jokingly called “drawing a map.” Nocturnal emission can also occur in the awake state, which is medically called “smoothing sperm”. If this phenomenon occurs, you should go to the hospital for examination and treatment in time. In boys entering puberty, as the reproductive organs mature, the testicles are producing sperm all the time, and the seminal vesicles and prostate are also constantly secreting seminal plasma, so that the seminal fluid is continuously accumulated in the body. When it reaches a saturated state, it will Excreted from the body through nocturnal emission.
The age and frequency of spermatorrhea
The sperm production rate of normal boys during adolescence is very fast, and hundreds of millions of sperm can be produced every day. With such a large number of sperm, under normal circumstances, “sperm overflowing” and nocturnal emission occur. Nocturnal emission rarely occurs in boys under the age of 12. By the age of 14, the incidence of spermatorrhea in boys is about 25%, and the incidence of boys with better urban and family economic conditions is higher. It is 55% at 16 years old, 70% at 18 years old, 75% to 80% at 20 years old, and at least 90% of men at 45 years old have had spermatorrhea under certain circumstances. The frequency of spermatorrhea varies greatly among individuals, most of which are once a week or once a few weeks.
Nocturnal emission and health
In the past, no matter because of our traditional feudal cultural consciousness or foreign feudal ethics, nocturnal emission was described as a “weird phenomenon.” In the Babylonian era, people would think that this was the result of the visit of the “Night Lady” or “Night Angel”. In the Middle Ages, people thought that nocturnal emission was caused by the devil. In China, the preciousness of semen is overemphasized. Many people think that spermatorrhea will lose the essence of the body and hurt the “vital energy”, such as “a drop of essence and ten drops of blood”. In fact, this is a misconception that lacks scientific basis circulating in the society. The laboratory analysis of semen by medical experts proved that the main component of semen is water, with only a small amount of protein, sugar and inorganic salts, and the discharge volume is 2 to 3 ml each time, which will not cause harm to the body. Therefore, under normal circumstances, spermatorrhea is a normal physiological phenomenon and a component of human sexual behavior, which is harmless to the body.
Factors that produce nocturnal emission
Psychological factors Due to the lack of sexual knowledge, some boys are over-focused in the face of sexual problems and are easy to accept sexual stimulation, which makes the cerebral cortex continue to have sexual excitement, which induces nocturnal emission.
Excessive fatigue, excessive physical or mental work, makes the body tired, sleeps deeply, and strengthens the central activity of the cerebral cortex, resulting in nocturnal emission.
Physical factors lying on your back and falling asleep, the bedding is warm and heavy, stimulating and oppressing the external genitalia, or wearing tights, restraining and squeezing the erect penis, thereby inducing nocturnal emission.
Sperm is overflowing. Because the testis is constantly producing sperm, the seminal vesicle gland and the prostate are also constantly producing secretions. When the semen in the body is stored to a certain amount, it will automatically be discharged from the urethra.
Inflammation stimulates inflammation of the external genitalia and accessory gonads, such as foreskin balanitis, prostatitis, seminal vesicle inflammation, epididymitis, etc., which can cause nocturnal emission.
The stimulation of pornographic books and images Boys in puberty are curious about the opposite sex. If they watch pornographic books and images, the cerebral cortex will be highly excited and induce spermatorrhea.
Prevention and health
1. Physically mature boys may have spermatorrhea once a week. If there is no discomfort, it is a physiological phenomenon. Don’t worry about this, put on your thoughts and worry about it.
2. Don’t tolerate the sperm midway during the spermatorrhea, do not pinch the penis with your hands to prohibit the semen from flowing out, so as not to cause the semen to flow back and become sick. Don’t catch colds after spermatorrhea, let alone wash with cold water, to prevent cold and evil from getting in.
3. Do not watch pornographic paintings, videos, movies, TV. Appropriately participate in sports activities, physical labor, and recreational activities to enhance physical fitness and cultivate sentiment.
4. Do not smoke or drink, drink less tea, coffee, and eat less irritating foods such as green onions and garlic. Do not use hot water to take a bath. When sleeping, you should bend your knees on your side, bedding should not be too thick, and underwear should not be too tight.
5. If the phenomenon of excessive spermatorrhea occurs, relevant examinations should be carried out under the guidance of a doctor to find out the cause of the disease and treat it in time.
