To understand semen leakage, we first have to understand semen. When a man ejaculates, the whitish fluid that’s released from the penis is called semen. It’s made up primarily of seminal fluid, which is produced by the prostate and the seminal vesicles. Seminal vesicles are the small glands located behind the prostate. A small percentage of semen is made up of sperm.
Semen is generally thought to only leave the penis during sex or masturbation. But sometimes, semen can exit the end of a penis without the person being sexually aroused.
Semen leakage is a common occurrence during sexual activity. There are also conditions that may cause semen leakage. Some may have a direct cause that can be treated, while others don’t necessarily require any medical intervention at all.
In addition to conscious sexual arousal, other common causes of semen leakage include:
Nocturnal emissions, also known as “wet dreams,” are most common during adolescence and sometimes into a man’s 20s. Most men have nocturnal emissions at some point in their lives.
A nocturnal emission is an involuntary ejaculation of semen that occurs when you’re sleeping. It can happen if your genitals become stimulated from bedsheets or during a sexual dream. A wet dream may result in some semen leakage, rather than a full ejaculation.
In any event, nocturnal emissions are quite common once a boy hits puberty.
Cantharis – seminal emission at night, followed by a disagreeable burning heat all over the body, great anxiety, heaviness, inability to sleep for the rest of the night; night emission followed by shivering lasting for an hour or two and sleeplessness for the night; partial blindness for an hour or two after night emission; great despondency, inability to apply himself to work and thus life becomes a burden; frightful satyriasis; violent painful priapism, discharge of blood instead of semen.
Caladium – penis is too flabby after masturbation; nocturnal emission occur with or without dreams. It is indicated in the advanced stages when there are no erections. Emissions occurring without any sexual excitement whatever is a good indication for caladium.
Carbolic acid – sexual organs in an unusually relaxed, weakened state during the day, but at night lewd dreams with seminal emission; intense burning itching of genitals.
Calcaria carb – bad effects of early masturbation; night-sweats followed by weakness of mind and body; increased sexual desire provokes emission, but unusual weakness follows indulgence, and ejaculation is tardy; burning and stinging while semen discharges during coition; pressing pain in head and back’ lassitude and weakness in lower extremities; sweat easily.
Argentum met – effects of onanism; seminal emission; almost every night, without erection, with atrophy of penis.
Phosphoric acid – this remedy corresponds to the chronic effects of loss of seminal fluid, such as emissions on three or four consecutive night, weakening the patient greatly. Under phosphoric acid the whole system is weakened.
Anantherum Mur. – Great exaltation of venereal appetite, increasing the oftener coitus is performed; venereal desire with impotency; frequent seminal and prostatic losses; night emission, with dreams, and unconscious of them.
Argentum Nitricum – this remedy has thick yellow purulent discharges, soreness and swelling of the urethra and sexual dreams with emissions. It is useful for chordee when the urethra seems drawn up in to knots, worse at night.
Nux Vomica – for the bad effects of early masturbation, Nux is an important remedy. It should be given when the patient suffers from headache, frequent involuntary emissions at night, especially toward morning.
Sulphur – in sexual conditions sulphur us useful when the patient is weak and debilitated, suffers from gastric ailments, and has frequent involuntary night emission, exhausting him greatly. The seminal flow is thin and watery and has lost his characteristic properties. The genital organs are relaxed.
Antim crud – nymphomania from checked catamania by taking a bath, with tenderness over the ovarian region; sexual desire and wakeful-ness; night emission with or without voluptuous dreams.
Bufo – longs for solitude, to give himself up to his vice; quick ejaculation, without thrill, with spasms and painful uneasiness of the limbs; frequent nocturnal emissions, followed by debility; slow emission, or entirely absent; aversion to coitus; impotence; imbecility with loss of all decency; masturbation or coitus causes convulsions, simulating those of epilepsy, usually followed by profound sleep; inclination to touch the genitals.e.t.c
