Doctor reveals potential unwanted side effects of 'No Nut November'
Would you try 'No Nut November'?
Participants of 'No Nut November' may want to think twice after an NHS doctor on TikTok revealed some of the potential side effects.
Unfamiliar with 'No Nut November'? Well...
'No Nut November' has become trendy in recent years, arguably thanks to the rising movement of 'no fap' or 'semen retention'. The general idea is that during the month of November, you refrain from self-pleasure and sex altogether.
However everyone's favourite TikTok doctor - Dr Karan Rajan - has revealed some of the potential side effects - and a few of them might be deal-breakers.

He said: "Wet dreams or nocturnal emissions aren't always about sexual arousal.
"Nocturnal emissions are a way for the body to clear out sperm.
"Your sperm has an expiration date so if you haven't fired your gooey cannon in a while, your body gets rid of the old stuff while you sleep."
However Dr Rajan believes that 'NNN' and semen retention, in general, does have unrivalled energy benefits.
Basically, it's a bit like astrology for men.
Dr Rajan continued: "You're a sperm recycling factory. Any sperm that reach their sell-by date and aren't used up get broken down and reabsorbed by your body.
"This is especially important for men that have had vasectomies because they still produce sperm.
"If your body didn't reabsorb sperm, your dingleberries would swell up."
Given that 'NNN' is just an enormous talking point at the moment, it comes as no surprise that the video has amassed over five million views.
Though medical experts like Dr Rajan have warned potential 'NNN' participants, the cult-like world of semen retention isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
"Biased much?" asked one TikTok user.
Another said: "Lads look into the benefits it's truly amazing."
