I'm having very frequent nightfalls . are my nerves weak? And are NF cure capsules effective?

You're fine: You're nineteen years old and should be treasuring this time in your life, rather than letting some quack "spiritual" or "health" advisor frighten you about your nocturnal emissions. They're normal, healthy, and a part of your life that you should be enjoying. Talk to a reasonable older guy -- maybe even Dad -- about your new body & the responsibilities and joys it brings. ...Read more

Wise up, man!: Listen, Zack. You know that the world is full of crooks and liars who will tell you anything to make a buck. Your new adult body is amazing, scary, and still mysterious. Gullible folks will believe fearmongering. You're 20 years old. You're almost a grown man and entering into the wonderful experience we call adult life. It's great -- but if you remain this naive, you don't stand a chance. ...Read more

Hello doctor I want to ask about nf cure capsules is it effective in treating spermatorrhea is there any side effects known?

Not a disease: Spermatorrhea is not a disease. If you are concerned about frequent or nocturnal ejaculation, you may address these by elective masturbation. Any, so called medication, you take is not only not going to help but may have side effects. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

My pharmacist friend suggested to take nf cure as i had freqnt semen leakage with bowel & with little excitement, what's nf cure?Valid suggestion doc?

Nocturnal emissions: Forgive my frankness. You are referring to "nightfall", which in some cultures is a term for the normal discharge of semen during sleep that happens to all young men who do not have frequently ejaculations by themselves or with a partner. It is healthy, masculine and a good thing. I am sorry your "friend" and other superstitious / manipulative people have tried to frighten you. ...Read more

Friend suggested nf cure may b wrong, so what should I do to cure semen leakage with bowel movement?Its annoying, little excitement cause leakage, plz!

Semen Leakage: I am one who would caution you strongly about taking anything to lower the amount of semen you produce. This common problem is ofter treated with regular ejaculation to empty the excess fluid in your prostate gland. If you are not sexually active please masturbate on a regular basis. This is more natural way then creating less semen through chemicals. ...Read more
