The Biggest Side Effect of Semen Retention

Last Updated on June 20, 2024 by The Unbounded Thinker

Although semen retention has several benefits, it has a big side effect when not done correctly. I experienced this side effect of semen retention, which was responsible for my relapse.

On my 18th month of semen retention, I lost my job as my writing clients started relying on Chat-G.P.T for writing services. This caused frustration since I never expected that something bad could happen while retaining my seed.

I then adopted a negative attitude towards semen retention and believed it was useless. I started watching porn and fantasizing about sex while avoiding ejaculation. After about four weeks, I started peeing 30 to 40 times a day. I wondered what was happening to me and I had to research this health problem on the internet.

I came to understand that my health issue stemmed from retaining semen while stimulating sexual arousal. I hypothesized that retaining semen while constantly thinking about sex or watching porn results in the buildup of sexual tension within the reproductive system. This tension increases sensitivity in the pelvic area, resulting in an overactive bladder or an enlarged prostate, which are the main causes of frequent urination. 

I therefore relapsed by having sex to release the tension, and to my surprise, the health problem disappeared. I then became certain that refraining from ejaculation while stimulating arousal results in health problems.

In his book, Semen retention: Continence and Its Creative Power, Swami Jagadiswarananda writes, “It is a fact that sex suppressed in outward action but indulged in other ways may lead to disorders of the system and brain troubles. This is the root of the medical theory which discourages sexual abstinence.”

Swami Jagadiswarananda confirms that sexual indulgence by imagination while practicing continence is a primary cause of health problems associated with semen retention. He claims that this side effect cannot occur when there is true spiritual effort of abstinence that involves Brahmachari in thought, word and deed.

The mainstream idea that semen retention can cause prostate problems by preventing ejaculations from clearing potentially harmful substances from the prostate is incorrect. Health problems mainly occur due to unreleased sexual tension and hormonal imbalances accompanying prolonged sexual arousal without release.

For this reason, you don’t have to worry about the side effects of semen retention if you practice true brahmacharya by avoiding pornography and sexual fantasies.

Always transmute your accumulated sexual energy by engaging in spiritual practices, exercising, reading, creative activities or working on a big goal and you’ll never experience health problems on your semen retention journey.

I wish you the best on this amazing journey of semen retention.
