    Hello,

    At first, I want to say I am new to this community, but I have done NoFap before, and it had some really nice effects.

    Long story short(or maybe not so short), I have been on and off NoFap, with streaks ranging from 1 to 2 months. I am not doing it because I have, or because I had a porn addiction, but mostly because I think masturbation is useless, and has more disadvantages than advantages.

    I reached a point where I just didn't feel the need to do it anymore, but a few days ago, I said I might do it again, to just test the waters maybe. I expected to have a really huge ejaculation, as I haven't been masturbating in more than a month, but to my surprise, I only ejaculated a pretty small amount of watery, precum-like liquid. I have done it again a few times these last days, and now I am back to the usual white semen, but the volume is way too small, and I can't understand why. I've head streaks longer than this one in the past, and the semen volume hasn't been like that when I relapsed. I understand it might be an effect of the abstinence period, and I am pretty sure that things will turn back to normal, but it still kind of worries me. I also think my libido is slightly lower after this happened, but I'm not that sure about it, maybe it's just in my head. I have also never experienced flatline in the past, and I don't think this could be flatline, as I've been on NoFap for more than a month before relapsing, and feeling great actually.

    This last month I had lots of wet dreams too, but at some point they stopped, which I didn't give too much attention to, until this relapse happened, and I noticed the low semen problem.

    I also want to specify that I am an active, healthy and happy 20 year old, with very good dietary habits, so there's no reason I could have a potential low T level (I might have been a bit lazy in the last few weeks, but I still tried to keep active, I've had times when I've been a lot more lazy than that).

    I am sorry if this is too much to read, but I wanted to give all the details to my problem, so the solution is easier to find. I've seen very few people on these forums to have this problem, and I can't seem to find a potential cause or solution to this anywhere on the internet.

    I hope you guys can help me realize what causes this and how it can be solved. I also hope you have great results from your NoFap journey!

    Thanks a lot for taking your time to read this.

    You said you had alot of wet dreams, how many dreams did you have? And when was your last dream? and how many days between the relapse and the last wet dream have passed? In my opinion the wet dream can affect your semen amount, and it can be cause of that...

    The last wet dream was probably around 3 weeks ago, so it has been a while. I started my new streak on november 1st, and finished it last thursday, so I don't think they're the reason, as the semen amount would deffinitley build back in this time frame.

    I don't know about it then.
    But take it from me, if you doing nofap to just have more loads while ejaculating, then you are in a wrong way dude, I had the same thing, I was tricked, that if I don't fap and ejaculate for some time I will ejaculate in loads with alot of pleasure, but guess what it is not... It made me relapse again and again. Besides bteaking my streaks all the time got me bad feelings.
    Focus more on healing your brain and soul.
    Good luck.

    No, having bigger loads is absolutley not the reason , I am deffinitley trying to focus on my mind and soul, i probably shouldn't have relapsed at that point in the first place, still hoping it's not a problem, and just a reaction that will pass. Thank you for your time to answer me, it helped!

    It changes based on hydrations and tons of other factors. Your body doesn't store it up like urine waiting to let it out. It makes enough to carry the sperm and that's about it.

    It's not something to worry about.

    Thanks for the answer man, i have no ideea if what the cause is, but i try not to worry about it, i'm positive it will be allright, it might be a good experience to tell others afterwards, so they do not worry if it happens.

    Yeah I have the watery thing also. Maybe the body just recognizes that's it's not ejaculating much atm so uses the nutrition elsewhere.
    Try not to worry, sounds like the semen gets back to normal relatively quickly, so we may as well continue with this experiment for a few months.

    Thanks for the answer! Yes, i have thought about that, the theory makes sense, i think i will continue nofap and not think about it, the fact that i am not the only one makes me feel that it is normal
