What are the ill effects of loss of semen according to popular belief?

Even today loss of semen as occurs in masturbation and wet dreams is wrongly believed by over (approximately) 60 % people of India as responsible for wide gamut of illnesses, bad health rendering a person weak and meek. It is believed teenagers will not be able to bear children. How can they have children after having lost all semen? It is believed teenagers will turn impotent. Teenagers will not be able to do sexual intercourse after marriage. Especially teenagers are a prey to wrong beliefs, which are further perpetuated by quacks who frighten the teenagers of the serious consequences of masturbation or wet dreams and extort money promising them a cure that will stop masturbation and wet dreams.
Physical loss of semen as on masturbation, wet dreams or sexual intercourse does not lead to weakness, backache, infertility, insanity, paralysis or any other health problem in the present or in future.
Neither in the textbooks of Ayurveda, nor in the science of modern medicine is it said that loss of semen as during masturbation causes weakness or preservation of semen by abstinence brings vigour, good health or power.
Three aspects of relationship between words strength, dhatu and virya:
Let us go deeper.

There is a common belief that loss of semen depletes man’s energy. Whereas conserving semen
leads to brightness, strength and self realization. Hence, conserve semen, so that you do not lose vital energy and vigor necessary for spiritual/God realization.
40 drops (some say 80 drops) of blood go to make one drop of semen.

Virya is a Sanskrit word with its origin in Rigveda.

What is dhatu?

According to the science of Ayurved human body is made up of 7 basic elements, each element is called dhatu.
Dhātu (Ayurveda) — Sanskrit word, plural Dhātus: the seven body tissues, or fundamental elements of the body.

What is virya?

Virya is a term used for heroism, lustre, strength in rigveda.
Vīrya (Sanskrit) literally means “state of a strong man or “manliness.” In Hindu Vedic literature, the term is often associated with heroism and virility.
The hymns of Rig Veda (RV) .referring to the word “virya” are given at the bottom.

Rigveda is one of the Vedas (scriptures of ancient India) and much older than Ayurveda.

Why semen is also called as dhatu?

Ayurved defines the seventh element as the sukra dhatu. The term Shukra dhatu is not restricted to semen alone. Shukradhatu denotes essential reproductive elements of both male and female.

hus shukradhatu is a word, which is also used for the ovulatory function. Artav is another term used for the ovum.

Why is loss of semen considered as loss of strength?

Semen is not virya. So loss of semen is not loss of virya (strength, heroism).
If semen is called virya (semen is not virya), loss of semen would mean loss of virya (strength, heroism) and thus the misconception.
Semen is called shukra dhatu.
Shukra means bright. Loss of semen would mean loss of brightness.
Shukra means ‘the essence’, so loss of semen means loss of substance of precious value.
