Adolescents and young adults are most vulnerable to nightfall due to the recent hormonal changes brought about in their bodies by puberty. However, the problem can chase you long into adulthood or even for whole lifetime in some cases. Scientifically, it can occur any time post the onset of puberty; although, for majority, it’s not a common occurrence as hormones stabilize with growing age. Yet, you need not worry! Nightfall even during adulthood is normal. May be a long-term distance from your sexual partner or lack of an alternate sexual vent like masturbation is prompting them. When semen doesn’t ejaculate, the body often releases it out while you’re asleep. You should consider seeing a doctor or taking up home remedies if the problem persists for really long or happens too much, say more than 4-5 times a week.
