Nightfall is an involuntary ejaculation of semen during sleep especially in the night and sometimes in the early hours of dawn.

The discharged fluid carries semen with the same concentration as after masturbation but mobile sperms were more in Nightfall discharge.

Everyone has to experience It in their life, so there is no need to worry about this except in some cases such as having it regularly for a long period of time.

In such cases where nightfall becomes regular, it is considered as a disease commonly known as “Dhaatu Rog ”in Hindi language.




Nightfall Is considered normal for both the sexes but having it multiple times in a short span of time is considered a risk to sexual health in “Ayurveda”, which is the most ancient medical literature of India.

Nightfall generally stopped with the passage of puberty, but it may be equally possible to have it after puberty.

In fact, in any phase of life, it can occur. Researchers have found that there is no such time period for Nightfall to be stopped unlike the “Ovulation” period in females which generally ends with the age of 45-50 yrs or so.
