Sexual Health

  • Q:
    Dear Doctor, I am a 28 year old suffering from nocturnal emissions for the past 9 years - it occurs 1 or 2 times a week. I have been masturbating frequently from the age 13. My penis size is small. Sometimes there’s pain in my testicles after ejaculations. Plus, there are allergies on the skin and the semen is thin like water. I am concerned about my sperm count and whether all these problems can cause infertility and lead to problems in my married life?
  • A:

    Let me make one point very clear – there’s nothing wrong with masturbation as long as you are not obsessed with it. Nocturnal emissions are also common, so there’s nothing to worry about.


    I usually advise my patients to have regular intercourse with their partner – this automatically decreases nocturnal emissions as well as the need to masturbate. In addition, I  also recommend that you focus on other aspects of your life instead of obsessing about sex and it's practices. Sex is important, but it should not rule your life.
