Nightfall or Swapnadosh: The reality of a much-hyped sexual problem in Indian and Pakistan

Nocturnal emissions (Swapnadosh)

This is not a serious ailment but hangs on the mind of youths in the Indian sub-continent.

Due to psychological reasons youth feel they get tired early and feel loss of energy due to the seminal emission at night.

Some tips:

1. The condition improves if the powder of 'jamun' fruit is taken (4 gm) twice daily with water or milk.

2. Two bananas everyday followed by lukewarm milk would also help a lot in the 'ailment'. Do this for three months. Before going to sleep wash your feet. In common parlance in India, youth call it night fall.
