Bed-wetting in teenagers and adults: causes

Adults who wet the bed at night often have problems in the daytime as well, such as having to rush to the lavatory (urgency). It is not really known why this occurs. It may be a mixture of reasons. If you have always suffered from bed-wetting, you may:

  • lack the necessary muscle and nerve control
  • produce a lot of urine at night

If you have only recently started to wet the bed, it could be caused by:

  • urine infection
  • alcohol, coffee or diuretic medicines
  • sleeping tablets
  • diabetes
  • stress and anxiety
  • other conditions

Lack of necessary muscle and nerve control. Your bladder may not have developed the necessary nerve and muscle control, so the bladder muscle contracts and empties the bladder when it is only half full of urine. If you are a teenager, your bladder may soon learn – it is just being a bit slow.

Producing a lot of urine at night. You may be producing a lot of urine, because the mechanisms that reduce urine production at night have not developed. Again, if you are a teenager, the problem may resolve itself in time.
 
Urine infection. A urine infection can irritate the bladder, and make it more difficult to hold urine.
 
Alcohol, coffee or diuretic medicines. Diuretics are medications that are used to treat high blood pressure and some heart problems. They encourage the kidney to make more urine. It is best not to take a diuretic at bedtime, because you will need to pass urine in the night and, if your bladder control is poor, this could cause bed-wetting. Alcohol and coffee have a similar effect, so avoid them within 3 hours of bedtime.
 
Sleeping tablets can make you sleep so soundly that you do not wake up when your bladder is full. If you take sleeping tablets, discuss with your doctor whether you really need them, or try reducing the dose.
 
Diabetes is a disease in which the blood sugar is too high. The kidneys try to lower the sugar by making lots of sugary urine, so you pass more urine in the day and during the night (you are also thirsty). If your bladder control is poor, this could cause bed-wetting. The problem goes away when the diabetes is treated.
 
Stress and anxiety can cause bed-wetting.
 
Other conditions, such as expansion of the prostate gland, neurological problems and sleep apnoea can result in bed-wetting.

I'm 22 and I just peed the bed for the second time in my adult life. The first was I was to drunk to wake up, but this time there was no rhyme or reason to why this happened. Glad to see I'm not the only one affected by this. I has to wake my gf up to change the sheets... It's pretty humiliating

Posted by Optional on 01/10/2014 at 10:30

I haven't wet the bed since i was 6 and now peed twice in one night. What could this be?

Posted by Kelli on 01/10/2014 at 03:23

I was sleeping then it happened it has been going on for like a few months. Wetting the bed, I feel so embarrassed about it I just finally got the nerves to tell my boyfriend. He thinks I should see a doctor, I wanna get a checkup but I cannot afford it. Im 18 and I feel so ashamed for wetting the bed. I dont even drink before going to bed at all and I use the bathroom right before bed. I just dont understand...

Posted by Optional on 22/09/2014 at 12:12

Am over 21 years old, but i still bed wet. Am sound without any health difficulties. What sholud i do?

Posted by Optional on 03/09/2014 at 11:18

I'm 18, just woke up & as I was waking up I was peeing. I couldn't stop it!! I had a uti a couple weeks ago & never went to the doctor because I don't have health insurance. I went to walgreens & bought azo tablets & drank plenty of water. The uti went away but I began to have the sudden urge to urine more frequently. I thought maybe it was because the uti but now I'm sure there's still something going on. This has never happened to me.

Hi I wet the bed last night, this hasn't happened to me before, any suggestions why? I put it down to stress.

Posted by Optional on 15/08/2014 at 07:16

Hi, I'm a 19 year old female and I just recently wet the bed. It hasn't happened in years maybe not since I was 5 or 6. All I can say is its comforting knowing others have also gone through this. I actually don't see it as much of a problem anymore. Although I prefer it wouldn't happen anymore, its not something to be super embarrassed about and I won't let it dictate my day or life. Good luck to everyone else! I hope you all achieve what you are looking for! :)

Hi, i started wetting the bed abou ta year ago,,it is so embarrassing as my 3&5 yr olds jump on the bed where i sleep, I used to wake up and find a way to absorb my urine before they wake up with a towel. Now I have found a better solution , if u go to the women's section of the supermarket wher they sell panty liners u will find nappies for men/women, ever since the mattress has stayed dry,I wear a pull up every night just Incase,

My son only wets the bed when he has an asthma attac during the night due to all the coughing he does

Posted by Optional on 04/08/2014 at 10:29

Hi I'm 20 years old and I still wet the bed myself. I always go to the bathroom before I go to bed and like most people who have this problem avoid any liquids after 8 o'clock. There was an incident a few years back where I wet the bed 3 months in a row on the same day!!! (weird coincidence) I've had this problem since I could remember And I also have a problem controlling it during the day, I can cough and it comes out. Needless to say I always have a change of underwear and pants. I've tried exercises, A constant bathroom schedule and anything else I could think of but it doesn't have any effect. I don't know if I should mention this to my doctor, I'm not sure if there is anything she can do. How should I go about this?

Posted by Optional on 02/08/2014 at 06:12

I HAVE NEVER HAD A DRY NIGHT. I WAS ALWAYS PUT IN DIAPERS. I AM HAVING A VERY LATE PUBERTY, BUT THE DOCS SAY THAT, AS MUCH AS I'D LIKE HORMONE SHOTS, THEY DON'T WANT TO START THAT IF THEY CAN AVOID IT. BUT IS IT TOO LATE FOR ME? MY MOM SAID I WILL STILL BE IN DIAPERS WHEN I'M FORTY. WILL IT STOP WHEN MY PUBERTY FINALLY DOES START? IT'S HARD NOT TO WORRY. KIDS LAUGH AT ME. I GET BULLIED CUZ I'M SO SMALL.

Posted by Optional on 01/08/2014 at 01:00

I am a 26 year old male who still wets the bed more than twice a week. I live with my parents do they have always helped with my problem. I do wear drynites and I sleep on a covered mattress. My mother is very understanding about my problem and had tried to help me. There are times when I also dampen my pants during the daytime.

Posted by Optional on 29/07/2014 at 04:27

I have actually just wet the bed im slightly ashamed and embarrassed because i haven't wet the bed since i was a child but the thing that worries me is that i am on holiday at my mums and how do i tell her.

Posted by anonymous on 27/07/2014 at 12:22

I am 26 and have struggled severely with wetting myself! When I'm not home there's not an issue, for the exception of one time in college. I don't know why it happens, as of recently I don't know it happened I just wake up wet. I could go to the bathroom 10 times in the middle of the night and sometimes still wake up damp or really wet. I have a 4 yr old son who I don't want to experience this problem. I hope to be married one day ...I don't want to bring this into the next phase of my life

Posted by Optional on 14/07/2014 at 12:11

Posted by Optional on 08/07/2014 at 02:49

almost 14 and i occasionally wet the bed

Posted by Optional on 07/07/2014 at 02:31

As far as I know, I have never shut my eyes with the security of waking dry. My life has been a secret. The times at a persons house & waking up wet were... awful. I altered my life around being a bed wetter. My parents did nothing. I just turned 43. I drink zero alcohol, have periods of dry, but may wake wet 3 times a week... I won't stay over with a girl I met in fear of wetting her bed. I lie why I have to go. It makes me soo sad. Fear, anxiety, self worth, self esteem issues, lack of any confidence,... I'll stop there. I'm only now talking about it. If I find something that works, I'll post it right away. We deserve a cure!

Posted by Optional on 04/07/2014 at 07:52

I tend to wet the bed mostly when I'm at a friends house and usually wake up smelling of piss so I make sure I get up early so I can spray myself because I'll be embarrassed if she smells it on me

Posted by Optional on 01/07/2014 at 09:30

Have never had a dry night in my life. I have wet the bed every night. Some nights are more wet than others but wet never the less.

Hi I'm a 26 year old female. Married and has 1 child. I have always had a problem with bed wetting since I was little. I have suffered through elementary school, high school and college with this problem. I have been to a doctor to get treatment only to find it didn't work. My younger brother deals with the same problem and I know it's a genetic thing in my family bc of other family members who had the same problem. I don't know how to conqueror wetting in the bed. What has helped me is set an alarm toget up and go to bathroom in the middle of the night and not drink anything right before bed. I worry my daughter will have the same problem when she gets older and that is a big concern! I wish there was something out there to stop bed wetting completely bc I'm tired of waking up wet.

Posted by Mark on 25/06/2014 at 02:34

Astounded by how many other people also share this problem. I went through a phase in my late teens & early twenties, normally alcohol related, but still! I had one incident about 7years ago and that was it; until last night; which was the first time when I'd been sharing a bed. Absolutely mortified especially when my wife rattled kff every joke in the book! I am stressed with work at the moment and hoping thst was the contributing factor. Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and making me feel a bit lessof a freak. Ps my wife did call meat lunchtime to say she'd been thinking about me, not to worry and rhat she loved me.

I'm a 14 year old girl, and I tend to pee in the bed at night. I never have trouble during the day though

Posted by Camila on 19/06/2014 at 05:08

When I was younger I always wet the bed, but I stopped as soon as I got my period when I was 11 years old. Now I am 14 and everything has been fine for years, as in I haven't been writing the bed anymore! I've had stomach aches for about 1 year now. They're been gone for about 2 weeks now. Everyday from those 2 weeks I've been waking up with massive head aches. Yesterday I wet myself around 4 pm, and didn't feel that I needed to use the restroom. I have no idea on what this is, please help.

Posted by Kat on 15/06/2014 at 02:09

It is really embarrassing and uncomfortable.

I'm 29 and have this problem my whole life , it's really making me depressed I can't date or take a girl home

Posted by Optional on 14/06/2014 at 05:21

I suffer from this and am now a young adult. I have had it since it since I was a child and it never went away. I want to stop doing it now. A few years ago my mom told the doctor and she did some tests(ultrasound) and everything was fine. I am a deep sleeper, but this week I have been setting an alarm early in the morning 3 am to avoid this problem by waking up, since throughout all my life if I happen to wake up super early(accidentally or on purpose) like anytime before 5 am or so I have been dry. So I set the alarm early, it worked for the first few days but now I have started to wet sooner, e.g. last night I worked up a few minutes before the alarm at 2:50 am and I was wet. What should I do since it seems my body has sabotaged me and is intent of trippig me up and I have messed with my bladder cycle.

I have now wet the bed twice in 3 years. I know that doesn't sound much but I am 52. I know that when I dream I am going to the loo I must wake but sometimes I just cant.

Hi I'm just about 25. I've been a bed wetter since I was 6 that I can remember by the time I was 21 I started to have frequent day time accidents. Why?

Posted by Optional on 09/06/2014 at 02:20

I always wet my bed the week before I'm supposed to get my period AND on really freezing winter nights. I don't know why. I don't have diabetes, sleep apnea or take any medications and I'm 21 now and want it to stop so bad. I did stop wetting the bed for ages between 11 and 13 and then it started again when I started getting my periods and you can see how disastrous that is for me. My doctor is useless. Anyone have a theory?

i have bed wet since childhood but now it come twice or once in amount when i have sound sleep

Posted by Optional on 08/05/2014 at 02:04

For the "dream wetters" out there. When I was growing up I often wet the bed due to "the dream". Something useful I taught myself was "dream control". Basicly if its the same dream each time, then constently remind urself when that dream happens u need to wake up and go to restroom NOW. Seecond useful thing is use a dream "cue", think of seeing sumthing completley random n outta place. Like peeing anywhere not normal, seeing a big red ball next to you. Basicly anything that with little thot will allow you to know your having "the dream" n need to wake up. These little tricks have helped me for years to wake up and go before wetting the bed. Now my only problem is every few years I become overlly tired and stressed. And psyicaly/ mentaly can't wake myself up until it happens n I fill the warmth. Like 430am today. :-/ .... good luck everyone

I am 13 and I have wet the bed at night all of my life. My parents get mad at me because pull-ups are expensive after a while and we have to wash my sheets every night otherwise. I really can't help it I don't wake up when I need to go. I guess my brain just won't send the signals to my bladder or whatever but I seriously need help I'm scarred to go to camp or sleepovers and I could really use some help. I have been to the chiropractor and that didn't help I have also tried limiting liquid intake after a certain time of evening and going to the bathroom before I fall asleep. I tried setting an alarm to wake me up every hour at night to empty my bladder but I sleep hard so it doesn't wake me up. :( I really need help. :(

Posted by Optional on 24/02/2014 at 08:29

Hi.There are teen/adult 'drynites'.They don't work if you really flood,but if you go to the toilet before bed they work for me.It took me ages of waking up 'dry' then 'wet' before I faced facts that I was a bedwetter.No big deal,if you wake up 'dry' then good,if you wake up 'wet' you just flush the goodnite away.here is a loss of pride in al this,but you are not alone :)

Im a healthy 23 year old female who is slightly on the chubby side. In September last year I wet the bed for the first time since childhood and I did not have this habit as a child. I did have a dream that I was peeing on that night. 6 months later (2 days ago) I wet the bed again but this time there wasn't a dream to accompany this. I am under going stress at the moment but otherwise I'm worried that this is going to become a habit. Can someone please tell me what's going on? ?

Posted by Optional on 30/12/2013 at 03:36

Posted by PandaAlli on 18/11/2013 at 06:46

So i read this article, and i feel un satisfied. Ive been zearchi.g for hours but nothing helps me... I am 12 yrs old and female. Lately i have been wetting my panties. Its during sleep. It doesnt really smell. To me, it might be stress. My parents argue, sometimes they get phisical and fight... I sit in my room with every door wide open so i can easily run down if any fighting happens. I wait for my brother [17 yrs old] to get home. Until his not home i dont sleep. So i really think its about stress.... Any suggestions?

Posted by Optional on 13/11/2013 at 09:21

This really helped me. I have sleep apnoea which probably causes this. Thanks!

Posted by Optional on 09/11/2013 at 03:36

I am a 58 year old female who wet her bed as a young child. I outgrew it after a while, and it was only in my mid 20s that the problem reoccured. Fortunately, the episodes were sporadic. However, those were the days before the internet and I believed I was a bit of a freak. I consequently trained myself to wake up and for years this worked. But it did mean that I awoke up to half a dozen times to go to the bathroom. However, in recent years this training has disappeared and I usually only wake once, maybe twice, to use the bathroom. I don't recall any problems for a good twenty years or so, but in the last 10 or so years, the problem has crept back. On the positive side, it is only an occasionally problem. But it is still annoying when it happens, and even distressing. And of course there is always the worry that it might happen in someone else's home, or while travelling. I don't feel that the problem is significant enough to wear diapers or any other protection methods at this stage. Here's the thing. Whenever one has an embarrassing problem, one tends to think you are alone in the world with the problem. But that is very rarely the case. And in the internet age we can share problems and get support through forums like these. As a matter of interest, most - but not all - of my bedwetting episodes involve dreaming that I am using the lavatory. In my case it has nothing to do with drinking alcohol, stress, a weak bladder, not emptying my bladder or any other obvious cause. It seems to just one of those things, and after reading many of the posts here, I have decided just to get on with life and not worry about it any longer. I am not alone and many people have far worse things to contend with, including worse bed wetting experiences. My husband seems unfazed by my occasional wetting episodes (he usually sleeps through them and fortunately I usually don't pee too much), but It seems that sharing the problem with your partner is the way to go and if they are not understanding, they are probably not going to be understanding or supportive generally. Find someone else, if that's an option. Good luck.

Ive had 3 surgeries one which my Appendix was removed and 31 shots in my lower back recently. This started before the shots. I never had this problem before. It started out as me dreaming I had to pee and then I would wake up and run to bathroom, now its progressed to me waking up right after and me running to the bathroom to finish!! Its embarrassing, Ive talked to my doctor about it and she has 2 options one to do the muscle exercise, and the other to go to a bladder specialist to fill my bladder up etc.. not sure what happens when I tell her its still happening!!

Have been researching this as I have had this issue since childhood. For me I dream that i am actually going through the motions of urinating in a dream state. different places and locations. This does not happen all the time but when it does I feel guilt shame and to be honest am at my wits end. I asked my doctor but just got palmed off. my wife wants to sleep in separate beds now and i just feel this is the end for me. Please can you help.

My 72 year old husband wets the bed. He had a stroke 6 years ago but just about 4 months ago started wetting the bed every night. I have put him in a male "diaper". The frustrating part is that he pulls off the diaper every night & wets the bed. I give him a lot of water during the day & encourage him to urinate during the day. But he does very little. He seems yo save it ll up & pulls the diaper off & wets the bed. Because he has had a stroke he doesn't seem to know what he is doing. I am very upset and frustrated. What do I do. The bed is really wet and badly soiled every morning. My e mail is jerbos7@att.net

But the problem would still persist. Let me explain! Bedwetters, enuretics, encopretics, diaper-users ..........I am afraid that your main problem is YOU, yourselves. We are forgetting that some 100% of humans are bullies. Yes that is right. We are all paranoid about being inadequate in some way, so when we see someone we perceive as weaker, we reactively put him down. It is instinctive and almost subconscious. If, when discovered, you shrink back in embarrassment and shame, everyone around will detect this and see it as weakness and will instantly mock, bully, diss & even ostracise you. But, if you demonstrate self-confidence and say, "so what? What's it to do with you? get a life!", it is they who will shrink back, simply come to terms with it, maybe even want to discuss it . I know personally, because I am undertaking a public campaign, called - NappyzRNormL -, to address & counter public attitudes to regular, non-fetish diaper-wearing for health, comfort & convenience reasons (like mine). As a shock tactic, I walk freely publicly in exposed diapers and, guess what, nobody chastises or bullies me. Are you amazed? Actually they often ask for photos, which is great in an accepting way, but not quite the "normalization" of diapers that I am looking for. But public acceptance takes time and it's a start. Yes I do dish out cards, give them my website address and explain my campaign .....but only AFTER they have already accepted me. Why then do they not get at me? .....as I said, it is because I am confident. I have my offense on the field, their D is now in read and react mode. So here, bedwetters in diapers, is your modus operandi. If discovered in diapers, talk about them in casual conversation; they are only another form of boxer shorts. Tell people that you need them, of course, but tell them the advantages (and there are many of those). Don't be afraid to laugh about it. After all, if the others wore feathered hats you would laugh, but only in banter & good spirit. So...... NEVER BE AFRAID TO WEAR DIAPERS AND, WHEN DISCOVERED IN THEM, ALWAYS BE **CONFIDENT** & NEVER SHOW WEAKNESS! YOU WILL GET YOUR LIFE BACK. Good luck and regards.

4 to 6 nights per week. haven't been able to control bedwetting for as long as I can remember. Am single and live at home. Work during the day and not rushed. Take no medications and I'm healthy.

Up until I was 23 I was a bed wetter every night... I even now need to get up to go to the toilet 2/3 Times in a night... I have a 5 year old son who up until recently didn't wet the bed in the night but in the last 3 month's he has started having accidents... I have stopped his drinks after 5.30.... And he will still wet the bed 4 nights in a week... I am worried that he may carry on bedwetting into adulthood like I did... Would this be a reasonable assumption

Posted by connorjj on 21/08/2013 at 06:14

Im 15 and I still wet the bed. It bothers me sometimes but my mom and grandma say its nothing to be ashamed about. I really don't feel like i have to go until the last minute and then sometimes its too late. I had alot of accidents when i was younger because of this. I still mess my pants sometimes too. Its gotten a little better during the day but still happens most nites. I did wet my pants at the movies this weekend but luckily i was wearing special pants. Thats what i do when im going to be out

Posted by Emilia on 20/08/2013 at 08:22

I was abused as a child and wet the bed out of anxiety, when DOC moved me to my fathers house it stopped the very night i moved in. It has happened twice in the past few weeks and only while i was at my friends house. He was really nice about it and it wasn't an especially bad experience.. The problem is i don't know what could be causing it, i had several urinary tract infections as a child that moved up to my kidneys because my mother wouldn't take me to a doctor, resulting in some damage. Could that be the problem? I've had quite a few in the past year, all aptly treated when i realised the problem. Its very embarrassing and i don't want to risk my friendship because he is literally my only friend and he's amazing and i want to grow up with him. Im 16 and when it stopped i was 13 if it helps.

Basically I am 26 weeks pregnant and in the last few days I have wet the bed twice without even knowing until I wake up and it's soaking, it's not a little it is lots. This is only happened this week. I have had a bladder problem but seemed to get better as have Botox to help, but since I have become pregnant seems worse again and feel like a young child? Any help please.

As the 'Urinator' said, "what can you do? I try to laugh it off and enjoy life as much as possible." and he is precisely right. What can you do? Well, all you can do is to try and follow some of the preventative measures, e.g. drink routines, kegal exercises are good too (http://kegelexercisesformen.com/urinary_incontinence_in_men.html) but dont stress about the outcome. The worse thing you can do is follow a line of negative thinking. Not to belittle the impacts and severity of bed wetting, but one can go on all day justifying why it is affecting your life and relationships etc. We think things into reality. So if you think, this problem is ruining my life, it will make you feel like your life is being ruined and isnt actually helping you. I was a premature ejacualator and was a bag of nerves when getting intimite. I tried all sorts of exercises, specialized condoms, even getting wasted before having sex. The main thing was that I didnt feel victimized and didnt give a dam, I just got on with it and enjoyed myself (and her). My capacity to last longer has improved ten fold. What Im saying is you create a reality. Just accept this is just a body, it cant always function perfectly and remain happy despite the problem, your familiarity with the problem and more understanding of it which is often the solution. Top things I would suggest: - Kegal exercises - Trying to hold off the bathroom. The need to wee is a routine that YOU establish. If follow your urge to go every 5 minutes, you will never be able to last longer than an hour. You need to be disciplined. - Going to sleep with a mantra: "I do not wet the bed" or "I am not a bed wetter" etc. - Not believing you life is over. Man up! Life is great, and only society says you should be embarrassed. - Eating healthy. You pee often to excrete the toxins in your system. Stop eating KFC! :) - Drink lots of water during the day. He said what?? Yes, drink lots during the day, provide your body with fluids it needs. Then stop a good several hours before bed. (I guess we all know that already) If you stop drinking water all together thinking that will solve the problem you are mistaken and may have some interesting kidney problems ahead of you! - Loosen up, go for a run and be happy! Life goes on! Ps. I bed wet the other week in the bed with my girlfriend. She laughed her ass off at me (grr) but I laughed it off too. (ill get her back one day haha) Anyway it has brought us even closer id say. 'through thick and thin' I think they call it....

Posted by Lily on 07/08/2013 at 07:32

My 20 boyfriend wets the bed weekly... It worries me... We slept in the same bed for 5 years, he is embarrassed about it. He peed on me while we were asleep five years ago and it will not let up. He doesn't want to talk about it. I actually don't mind, since he cannot control it. I make surehe dosen't drink anything before going to sleep and I make sure to tell him to use the restroom before going to sleep...He shakes sometimes in his asleep so I wake him up and sure enough he has to pee. I support him and tell him it's nothing to be embarrassed about. He pushes me away because of this...

Posted by unknown on 05/08/2013 at 01:27

The only time I ever wet the bed is if I am having a vivid dream about going to the bathroom. I am on Imipramine for urgency which may sometimes happen during the day, but the doctor says it is a form of antidepressant for the bladder which tells the brain to tell the bladder that it doesn't have to go. But if I am in Dreamland forget it, it doesn't help. This is very frustrating and worries me when I sleep away from home.

I'm 16. I wet the bed today. First time in years. Sucks. I think it's just a one time thing. Likely because I woke up and went back to sleep. It doesn't usually happen but maybe my body woke me up because I needed to pee but I just went back to sleep.

Posted by Optional on 10/06/2013 at 12:32

I'm 29, almost 30 and have dealt with bedwetting since I was young. My sister still occasionally wets the bed (she's 35) and I have an older cousin (around 37/38) who deals with it too. I sometimes go years without ever doing it then it starts up again. I'm currently pregnant with my third child and seem to be doing it more frequently. I've always been too embarrassed to talk to a doctor about it. Luckily my husband stuck around after the first time I peed on him. I knew it had to be true love lol. I convinced him that I was really hot during the night and must've sweat a lot. He believed me but after a while I shared with him what really happened. It can be a tough issue to deal with especially when someone new is in your life. Maybe one day I'll go to the doctor but for now it's comforting knowing that I'm not alone. There are others just like me and I'm not so weird after all. :) Good luck to all of you who are looking for solutions on how to stop it and those of you looking on how to explain to your significant other what's going on.

i have always suffered with bed wetting and suffered bad when i was at school wetting myself as i couldnt hold on until end of class or the next break. i am lucky to have a family and a fiancee that i can talk to about it. i only lost my virginity two years ago and since then my bed wetting has almost come to a hault (it still happens occasionally but only every few months or so) do you think having starting to have sex has helped in any way? many thanks

I've been struggling with this bet wetting issue ever since young ,I'm 19 now and it sti hasn't got any better .. I went to see a doctor a few years back but she said nothing was wrong with me and adviced not to drink water at night .. I've tried soo many nights to not drink water and it still doesn't help.. The worst part is my family doesn't understand that I'm not bet wetting in purpose ! I'm tired of gettin scolded and called names everyday ... I don't want to be wearing diapers.. I don't know who to even talk about this to.. Somedays I feel like I should honestly just kill myself instead of just being a burden ..

As a kid i wet the bed every night until the age of 12 when thankfully something (i dont know what) changed and it stopped. Now as a 34 year old man it still happens occasionally but ONLY when ive been drinking lots of alcohol. I believe i probably have some kind of bladder/muscle disfinction where the bladder thinks its full but isnt so i also find myself needing to go to the toilet more often than most people. And when i need to go i really NEED to go! The feeling of needing to go becoming desperate to go can take seconds. Its awkward and has caused lots of embarrassment in my life but what can you do? I try to laugh it off and enjoy life as much as possible.

I'm 55 years old and I've had this problem with peeing the bed since I was a small child.There was a period of time for about eight years I didn't have any problems,then I started having bladder infections which resulted in several surgeries and other procedures that my bladder is weak.I do wear protection at times but when I least expect it that's when it happens. I do have some daytime wetting issues if I'm somewhere and I have to go really bad and I don't know where the bathroom is. I wear protective pads if I know for sure I'm going somewhere that bathrooms may be hard to find.This is something I have learned to live with and I thank God for such an understanding wife.

i am a 54 year old married man and have been a bedwetter all my life, and for the past two years i have been having daytime wettings and have resorted to wearing incontinence pads in the day aswell as heavier pads for night time. i have had all the treatment i can have to no avail. i am a very nervious man and always was as a child. i have a very understanding wife and like she says, its been with you all your life so basicaly its something we have to deal with together and get on with life. when we stay away from home i always take plenty nappies and protective cover for the bed, and as all my family grew up with my problem i dont feel as if i have to hide anything. even if we stay in hotels i just take the same precautions. For anyone who has struggled for years, i would just like to say.. dont hide away and dont let it destroy your life and ability to do things...

I'm 22 and have wet the bed pretty much all my life all through my childhood and teenage years I have been back and forth from the my doctors and hospitals and tried anything they had to offer but nothing worked. It's really getting me down now it's so embarrassing I tend not to drink much going ill have a dry night. Over the last couple of months it's not been as bad it used to be every night but now it's only a couple of nights once I went a whole week but I still worry it'll happen being woken up by your boyfriend to be asked have you wet the bed really isn't a nice feeling. So if anybody has any medication they have tried and work post it on here.. And let's hope it can help one of us stop. Cause we are the only ones that know how depressing it can be.

It was back about a year an a half now since I started wetting the bed. It has been a big hassle living with this problem. I have been to the doctors. No signs of infection. I do have sever sleep apnea which I do use a Bi-Pap machine at night. The doctor has giving me meds that haven't worked. The doc told me there are to options. Surgery or wear protection at night. I am a person that does not like surgery unless it is a life and death issue. I took the second choice. I have been wearing diapers at night for a year now. I have managed to deal with it. Now my problem is starting during the day. I have been wetting my pants during the day and not knowing it until it's to late. I have no problem wearing diapers to bed but am I going to have to wear them during the day too. The thought of people and friends finding out that I am wearing a diaper is going to cause me a lot of stress. What can I do

I am 17 years old and I have been wetting the bed for as long as I could remember.The doctors have always been telling me that one day I will soon grow out of it. But here I am a senior in high school getting ready to go off to college and still wets the bed. I don't know what to do. I have no one to help me with this problem. Even when I try to use a alarm clock I still wet the bed. I even took a nap at my boyfriends house and wet his bed. So embarrassing!! I need help. I don't think I will ever stop this disturbing problem of mine. DO ANYONE KNOW ANY MEDICATION I CAN TAKE? I will never allow myself to date anyone else if this dilemma of mines does get resolved! As I write this I feel like crying.Thats how much I am ashamed.

Why am I wetting the bed in the middle of the night and not know it is driving me nuts and my parents think I'm just lazy but I'm asleep when it happens

Posted by Optional on 24/02/2013 at 05:05

I'm 16 and have a urine infection.. But I could also be pregnant. Ever since I've had this infection I've wetted my bed. But when I stayed at my friends house I didn't but the night I slept in my own bed again I did it.

Posted by Danielle on 21/02/2013 at 01:25

I have always wet my bed and I wet myself a lot in the daytime, too. All the many doctors and specialists I've seen don't know the reason why. So I don't worry about it anymore. I wear a disposable nappy every night when I go to bed, and I often wear one in the daytime if I am somewhere it would be a problem if I wet myself. I don't think wetting my bed or wetting myself is a big problem; I'm so used to it that I just don't care anymore. My husband isn't bothered by it either. If you have incontinence, and someone is bothered by it, they are not worth being called your friend; if they love you then it won't matter to them that you wet your pants.

I've been dealing with this since I was a child, and, though it's gotten better (mostly because of some sleep issues I now I have), it's still a reoccurring situation. I recently found out that my brother had this problem until he was twelve. I'm older than him by a year, but I never knew this. From what my mom tells me I went through 'more' regarding the situation. They sent me to more doctors and gave me more tests. When I was young it was because of pressure on my bladder, aparantly, and I had to take pills. When that didn't work I had this sort of maching that basically zapped me when I started 'leaking'. When the problem continued they did some sort of catheter test thing that I have no memory of, even though I was ten and old enough to have memories of something like that. At this point I wonder if all these tests have cause some sort of damage and if this will ever get any better for me. But, I guess it's nice to know that it isn't only me.

I am 18 years old and recently there have been occasions where I have wet the bed or not been able to reach the toilet in time. It's begun to make me a bit anxious , as I'm not sure what's causing it. My parents suggested it could be that I have been very exhausted lately, and therefore i'm so tired that i don't realise that i'm peeing myself, but then my boyfriend thinks it may be down to stress. I'm getting quite worried, should I go to the doctor or see if it will go away?

My son has not been dry a day or night in his life. It is so destressing for him, he does not sleep over at anyone's house or go on school camps. It is really affecting his emotional state. He has recently had a rigid cystoscopy to see what is causing his problem and unfortunetly he has a very small bladder which is overactive. Has anyone ever had botox injections into the bladder to help with this? I'd love to know if botox has worked for anyone as this is what we are considering for him.

I had a problem of bed wetting since childhood. Mainl when i sleep at night, my brain doesnot notify that pee coming and when wake up in the morning i found wetting bed so am so having a problem since ago so plz help me。。。。。。

Posted by Pete on 28/09/2012 at 04:45

Wet the bed a lot between 5-7 yrs old, was pretty much sorted with sleep alarms, problem returned 20 yrs later week or two of bedwetting then few months ok, seems to be brought on initially by work/life stress which I am normally completely unfazed by, but after it's happened once then that becomes the new anxiety before going to bed, which just snowballs. Finding that the old tricks of changing sleeping pattern a little, remembering to drink a little less in evening, set alarm to wake you regularly in the night all seem to help. Problem is it can suddenly disappear again and forgetfulness kicks in! Plus it takes a lot longer and more effort to change ones daily lifestyle as an adult than a child. Embarrassed mainly because it's damaging relations with my dad, he's upset because he cares - but if I sense (even mistakenly) that it's on his mind too or causing him worry, then this just adds to the stress and the cause of the problem!

I have been wetting my bed since I can remember now, my father's side of the family has a history of diabetes and my dad wet his bed till age 21 and I'm 26 now I thought this would have stopped by now. I sometimes wet the bed during the day I don't drink coffee and I only started drinking alcohol at 21 and I only drink on special occasion so I guess my problem would be caused by diabetes. I haven't tested yet I'm scared that I won't eat the food that I like. I'm staying with my 30year old boyfriend and he knows my problem. My question is will I be able to have kids with this kind of problem? And is it ever gonna go away? Before I wet my bed I always have a dream, I dream that I'm in the bathroom trying to pee or struggling to get my pee in the toilet hole and when I'm almost done then I wake up and realise that my bed is wet already. What is wrong with me?

At the age of 13 I got a waterbed and loved it! 1 to 3 times a year I would wet my bed but have noticed that the problem has stopped since getting rid of my waterbed. I liked to party at a young age and at times I loved my deep sleeps so there were many risk factors. I got rid of my waterbed in my early 30's and was also diagnosed with testicular cancer about that time. I honestly believe the cause of both were in part my waterbed!!!

This website gives me hope. For years growing up, I felt so alone. It's a hard problem to deal with. I've been lucky in the respect that most people in my life who know about it or have discovered it, have been very understanding and supportive but it still upsets me greatly. I've had nocturnal enuresis for years. I've tried several doctors and none have been able to diagnose my exact condition; what it's caused by. Every doctor has a different theory. It's improved slightly from when I was much younger, but I still have sporadic wet nights, sometimes in a row, one after the other, night after night then dryness for X amount of time. There's no real pattern to it. I've tried the nasal spray, the alarms. I sleep with mattress protectors on my bed. I feel like a child. It's so embarrassing. I know one day it will stop outright, I just have to keep trying new methods. So if anyone is going through similar woes, I urge you to keep your chin up. you are not alone :)

Posted by Ross on 15/10/2011 at 09:02

I don't know why there's such a fear of having to use incontinence products. I broke my back 12 months ago and I wear them in the day if Im out and at night. You can wear them and still use a toilet it's just in case. They are very thin and absorbent and aren't like wearing a big thick nappy. You can't tell when I'm wearing one in the day at all. Of course you should always see a doctor if your having problems, but there are suitable products you can use to save embarrassment if you need too. You can buy them in any supermarket or pharmacy. Its not embarrassing or disgusting.

I used to get my bed everyday when I was a child, when I started school I stopped doing it that often but I still had that problem and I was too embarrased to tell anyone, so I changed the sheets or just let it dry and later wash it ( so no one would find out) lots of times my brother found out because he found either wet underwear under my bed or smelling my bed and he would tell everyone around and make fun of me, I hated it, but I couldn't help it, :( it just happened, in fact I used to dream about getting up and going to the bathroom but sadly it was only a dream (it seemed so real) I still wet my bed once in a while and my husband does not about it because luckily We have 2 girls (twins, 2 years old) that get up early in the morning and get into our bed so I blame them ( it has happened twice) but what am I going to do when my husband finds out?

Posted by Erika on 10/08/2011 at 11:03

I have this issue. Wetting the bed is due to stress and anxiety 4 me. I dont wet the bed every night but it does happen. I dont know if bedwetting ran through my family. I dont ever remember wetting the bed when i was little. This problem didnt start until i was about 21-22. Im 23 now, but getting ready to turn 24. I have stress and anxiety disorders, which is probably why i have wetting problems. I've had daytime wetting as well. I hate having daytime wetting cause its more frustrating for me. Sometimes i have to try extra hard to remember my signals, but sometimes i just forget and im too late.

Bedwetting has ran through my family from my mothers side, as as the gene has been passed on it has gotten weaker.. i've tried everything from clinics to drugs to the alarms.. but it just keeps occuring.... when my mom was my age her accidents were much more 'frequent' than mine, where as mine are only 1-2 times a month or sometimes not at all.... but this past 2 weeks i've wet the bed nearly every other night... I'm really scared why this has started happening, i have to move in with my new flatmates in october and i'm scared they will find out about my problem... i wish to invest in the 'diapers'... but theres hardly any reviews on them, so i have no idea which are the most discreet? Any Advice? O and the above statement that most adults who suffer from enuresis also have problems in the day time is total rubbish, its not always the case.

I wet the bed very often for many years, and it started reducing in instances was I got older. When I moved out of home and into residence for my last degree it only happened once or twice a month. The only challenging part is that last year we had bedders, people who come in and change your sheets etc. in the college accomodation and the few nights I did wet it was very emberassing. I now know them pretty well and well its still a little emberassing but it does happen.

Posted by Optional on 30/05/2011 at 02:36

Periodically,like once in 2/3 months, I wet bed. This is always when I am dreaning of passing urine. I dream of passing urine very often but mostly wake up bbefore wetting bed. My psa is around 1.5 and my blood sugar(fastting) is around 130. I have slightly enlarged prostrate but have no problem passing urine. What causes it and what can be done to control

Wow, I'm not the only one! I literally wet the bed twice last night. I'm 44. Normally, it's once a month or so at most, but TWICE last night. I wet the bed occasionally as a kid, but pretty much stopped from the teens on through my 20s. Started once in a while again in my 30s and it's picking up more and more now. It's embarrassing having a plastic sheet on the bed, and even thinking about diapers (I am) makes me shudder.

Posted by Optional on 26/03/2011 at 04:17

I wet my bed whenever I drink alcohol since the age of 17 or 18. I had a lot of situations with huge wet spots in the beds of frieds, boyfriends, hotels a.s.o. I felt very ashamed about my accidents, but you know, i'm a young women, I like to go out, parties, rock-concertes... and also I like have some drinks with my frieds. Since 3 years I wear diapers in the nights after parties, that's better as a wet bed in the morning. I was afraid and ashamed,when I told it for my new boyfriend but it's not a problem for him.

i've had this problem as far back as i can remember. from since the age of 14/15 or so i've gotten it checken out but can't rmember what they said was the problem but on tablets since or else a nasal spray. they have saved my life. once i have them with me i'm good. getting married in july and my future husband still doesnt know 10 yrs later. i hate it and like the rest of ye if if i did forget to take them and wet the bed the shame is terrible. hopefully i have encouraged someone to speak out and get the tablets. your life will be saved once you take them. no side effects for me anyway.

does wetting the bed 7 to 10 times a Month justify wearing a diaper every Night? I also get bouts of what I beleive to be Stress incontinence but they only last 2-3 days by the time I get to a doctor it has stopped and the doctor looks at me like I'm crazy, What could be going on?

I've been wetting the bed since I was a kid. My adoptive parents put me through surgery. Had me on alarms. Put depends on and even had me stop drinking anything past six. I am twenty two and have never gotten rid of the problem. I also recently suffered a stroke. But the docs say there is nothing wrong with me. I am always depressed. I need help. Can anyone help?

I have been wetting the bed since I was a child. It is really difficult to live a normal life. I can't live away at school. I can't stay over and visit friends at school or at their home without having to sneak on a adult diaper and then sneak it into a plastic bag to put it back into my luggage until ican throw it out at home. It's been awful. I'm still waiting for it to just stop. I just hate this issue. :(

I have had many health problems Such as cerebral pulsy and epilepsy. about a year and a half ago I started urinating every time i would have a siezure so I started wearing diapers too Cover the Leaks I was siezing every day all day long the abulance came too the house once a day, and now i barley have siezures, thier was some brain damage done so i am still using diapers, but i am doing better then i was. If you have Urinary inconietence You should consult you GP right away and use diapers too prevent a imbaracening accident. They even have light pads if you a leaker or Pull ups in adult size's, and talk too your family about your Urinary issues so They understand the Use of diaper. Happy trails PK

Posted by Optional on 27/04/2010 at 08:11

I began bedwetting aged 12. It continued until I was 21. A scholarship winner in England I had a difficult schooling there and in NZ. Bullying was a feature of my first year at shool here.My parents had me physically (internally) examined and I had to use an electric device that delivered a shock to my penis should urine emerge during sleep. It didn't work. I volunteered into the army concealing my problem from barrack mates. It stopped on arrival overseas where we had servants and I could no longer conceal it. Just stopped. There were 'one off' incidents, usually after boozing. As I get older I think I'm verging on incontinence, often wetting myself inside the toilet. I think my problem is psychological. Probably sexual abuse but I can't put my finger on a particular incident. I'm making these comments in the hope they may help someone

You can get over this, it can disappear, I found contentment and after 20 years stopped bed wetting. I had all the anxieties and could not go out and stay over at friends, once I was in my own place, set the alarm to wake up it suddenly went away. Good luck and sleep well.

I have a practical suggestion for Paul regarding wearing protection at night as he has yet to find a pad which works. As a nurse we use an alternative to catheterisation for incontinent men, it is a device called a 'CONVEEN' although I expect there are different names depending on the manufacturer. It is basically like a very strong condom which is rolled over the penis to the base and held on using a double-sided adhesive band (wrapped around the base of the penis, the conveen is then rolled over the top of the adhesive strip. Unlike a condom, the end of the conveen is open and you attach it to a drainage bag which can be supported on the floor beside your bed, using a custom made stand. If you wet yourself during the night the urine flows out of the conveen and through a narrow tube about 1 centimetre wide, into the drainage bag which can hold about two lites. The drainage bag even has a tap on the end to empty it and can be washed through with tapwater and washing up liquid, ready to use again. There are even 'leg bags' available, which are smaller and strap onto your leg at thigh or calve length although there is a risk with these of you squashing them in your sleep by rolling on them so a night drainage bag with a longer connection tube so it sits on the floor on its stand is wiser. These 'conveens' and drainage bags are available on prescription through your g.p. They even come in different sizes, small, medium and large and are an amazing invention which should give you peace of mind, just make sure that the end is not twisted like a corkscrew once the connection tubing and bag is applied or else the urine will not be able to flow freely out of it and the conveen will blow up like a balloon and come off under the pressure! I heard a funny story about a group of medical students who stole some from work so they could wear them on a long minibus trip to a rugby match and drink loads of beer without worrying about toilet breaks, they all used leg bags unde

I wet the bed almost every night well into my late teens which caused an indescribable amount of anxiety and shame. I could never stay over at friends houses for fear of it. I was even worried about leaving home for university it was that bad. Unfortunately my parents did all the wrong things, they never took me to see a doctor or (as far as I know) sought any help or advice whatsoever concerning my problem. My father used to avoid the subject as he was embarrassed and my mother would shout at me and rage about how she was struggling to cope with all the 'stinking sheets' laundrywise - she even said this within earshot of a visiting schoolfriend when I was about 14 even though I begged and pleaded with her to keep her voice down! I was desperate and would go to bed as late as possible having avoided drinking after 6-7pm. I would then try to stay awake and sleep on top of a thick towel or even my dressing gown to soak up the urine if I did wet the bed and then get up very early to wash it and iron it dry as we had no tumbledryer before anyone else woke up. My parents didn't even bother buying a mattress protector or any of the devices such as alarms, they just ignored the problem - apart from telling me off when my mother found out, so my mattress was permanently damp and smelly, it was just a living nightmare which I thought would never end. I regularly fell asleep during lessons through exhaustion and failed most of my O levels it was truly awful and I didn't know who to turn to. However eventually it did improve by the time I was seventeen and I was able to leave home to study nursing. I never found out if it was a physiological problem as I always asumed that it was entirely due to the fact that I lived in a very unhappy home, with parents who hated eachother and dysfunctional sisters with behavioural problems who regularly abused drugs and alcohol...which is probably why my parents regarded their 16 year old daughter wetting the bed as the least of their

im a ordinary lad play football go clubbing have fun with my mate's but one thing has always held me back. i have for all my life wet the bed nearly every night apart from the odd night off untill i was 19 then i got the odd month off and when i was 21 it was maybe once every 3 month. i found i was very tired before going to bed, to cold in bed or drank to close to bed time on these occations. So i decided sod it im off i packed my bags went to moscow africa and stayed in australia for 8 months had no problems at all i found a new confidence in myself fell in love for the first time in my life cause i actually let people close to me instead of keeping people at a distance. I came home it was a matter of a month and i was wet the shock i have been home 6 months now and this is the 5th time im keeping any girls i meet at a distance now again going back into my old routine i dont know what to do i am a bit lost

I have suffered from this condition all my life but a recent operation for Peyronie's Disease has made it worse. I have been back to the doctor several times and all the usual underlying causes have been ruled out. Looks like I am destined to spend the rest of my life wearing protection to bed at night. The problem is that I have yet to find anything which is guaranteed leak proof. Most pads, etc, seem to work when I sleep on my back but mostly I sleep on my side and that is when the leaks occur. Any suggestions?

I wet the bed mostly after drinking beer. It doesn't happen everytime. Sometimes I can drink 4 pints and wet the bed, other times I can drink 12 pints and be alright. This can also happen with soft drinks.

I've been dating a very wonderful man for the past 6 months, and I'm loving every moment with him.This past weekend he woke up in a flood and it was my fault. I don't know what to do/say to him. He confronted me over the phone but I'm so frustrated as to how our next meeting is going to be. I love him and don't want to loose him but this problem in my family seems to heritary and I guess nobody would like to grow old with someone that would forever wet their bed. I'm very stressed HELP!
