Nightfall Diagnosis

How can nightfall diagnosis is done?

As discussed earlier, since this is not a disease, there is not a lot a person can do to diagnose this condition.

No help: It is mostly not caused due to any physical problem. A scan such as an X-Ray, CT scan, or an MRI cannot necessarily find the existence of this condition.

 

Self-diagnosis:

• It is the only way one can actually confirm that they are facing this issue for nightfall diagnosis.

• There is only one physical proof to understand the existence of this condition, and that is the secretion of the excess seminal fluid due to an involuntary ejaculation or orgasm faced in sleep.

• If there is a sticky discharge in the undergarments, it is a sign that there has been semen secretion, and one should understand that they might have experienced a nightfall.
