Bed-wetting in teenagers and adults: what you can do

Do not blame yourself. Remind yourself that it is not your fault. There is no need to feel guilty or dirty. And remember that no one can tell just by looking at you that you have this problem.

Cut down on alcohol. Trial and error will show you if this helps. Similarly, try cutting down on coffee in the evening.
Use an alarm clock to wake you a couple of hours or so after going to bed, and a couple of hours before your usual waking time. Vary the time every few days, to avoid getting into the habit of emptying the bladder at the same time each night.
Try sleeping in a different bed, or moving to a different room or even just moving your bed into a different position – some people find this helps.
Visit your doctor if you have not already done so. You may be so embarrassed that you feel this is impossible for you – and in fact 1 in every 6 adults and teenagers who wet the bed never seek help. Decide to be one of the brave people who gets it sorted. Your doctor will not be surprised or embarrassed, and will be pleased to help (look at the section on talking to your doctor). But you must explain clearly that your problem is wetting the bed. Do not pretend you have cystitis or some other urine problem, hoping the doctor will guess what is wrong, because he or she probably will not. For 2–3 weeks before you see the doctor, keep a diary detailing when you wet the bed.
Dr Phil Hammond looks at the frustrations of bed-wetting, with a little help from ‘Henry’, in his informative and entertaining guide on bed-wetting (click on video below).

I wet the bed until I was 17. It was embarrassing when the family went to visit friends and their Mom's would lend my Mom diapers. I wore all different kinds. Also the neighbor across the street would baby sit and was my same age but have to put Pampers on me and also plastic pants. She would ask "ok Jonny, where does your Mom keep your diapers" and then put me on the bed to diaper me. I still see her when she comes home to visit, Still embarrassing

We have a new adopted 14 year old daughter who we have had now for three months.We started her off right away in cloth diapers and rubberpants 24/7 for her wetting issues.We just started her in training pants and rubberpants during the day and still doing the cloth diapers and rubberpants at bed time.She feels more comfortable in the training pants,and when she is wet,she takes off the rubberpants,puts on a fresh training pants and the rubberpants back over them.At bedtime,i pin the cloth diapers on her then put adult size,blousy fitting rubberpants over them for comfort.

My boyfriends daughter is a very smart 5 year old. She has no disabilities and still wets the bed. She throws fits when we ask her to go pee before bed time and we even try to not give her anything to drink late. She does it when she feels like at our home and does it every night at her mothers home. Her mom does nothing to help motivate her to poddy train and wipe herself correctly. I try to help but she doesn't like to listen to my cause I'm her dads girlfriend. I'm considering to get her pull ups since she wants to continue to play before bed instead of going pee.

My step daughter had nightly bed wetting issues until about 12 years old. Doctor put her on a low dose of imipramine... she totally stopped with it. Please ask your doctor about it if you have this issue... it was such a relief for the whole family.

I'm 20 and I wet the bed last night. It's been the most frustrating day ever in that I feel embarrassed trying to clean it up. 8 share a bed with my younger bro (just 1yr difference) who inevitably knows as I took off the sheets and all. I tried using 50/50 vinegar solution and baking soda but there's still one major spot that seems to have soaked in. I used to have this issue a lot when I was growing up and I can only remember one other incident in the last 4 years or more. The annoying part is I didn't even know. I'm usually dreaming of taking a piss in my sleep which causes me to pee irl but I didn't even feel anything until it was over. Now the mattress isn't fully dry, although I can sleep on the couch, I'm just hoping the smell isn't that noticeable for my brother.

My son Hunter is 12 years old must wear diapers 24/7. We had trouble trying to potty train him when he was 2-3 and aimed for a while he just wasn't ready. By kindergarten, when he was REQUIRED to be potty trained, we thought we might finally be successful in training him to use the potty. However, his daytime and nighttime accidents didn't stop. He still wore diapers at night, but he wore Pull-Ups during the day at school and out playing. Hunter continued to wet and poop in his diapers/Pull-Ups every night and during the day. It caused some problems at school until we worked out a deal with the nurse to check and/or change his diapers every hour. After consulting his pediatrician, we took him to see a specialist that deals with childhood incontinence. The specialist ran several tests and discovered that Hunter was born with a condition called peripheral neuropathy. In a nutshell, the nerves leading to his bladder and sphincter muscles don't work at all...and never will. Other than that, Hunter is a smart and athletic kid. He's a good student who loves baseball and has lots of friends. His teachers and many of his friends know about his condition and have still accepted him. As a parent, it's one thing to have an infant or toddler still in diapers but a pre-teen boy still in diapers is a whole different ballgame...especially one as active as Hunter. Thankfully the emotional/psychological issues that often accompany this kind of problem don't seem to have affected Hunter, and he has never expressed resentment or shown any anger about suffering from incontinence or having to wear thick disposable tape-up style diapers all the time. I think because Hunter has only ever worn diapers, he doesn't get jealous or resentful of other boys that he sees wearing regular boys white briefs/underwear. He even shares a bedroom with his younger brother Cody who is 10 years old, fully potty trained, and able to wear plain white briefs like other boys his age...but Hunter is okay with being slightly different. To make it easier we've established a daily/nightly routine. Since me and my wife almost always get up earlier, the routine begins every morning. When it's time for the boys to wake up one of us goes into their room and turns on the lights. As Cody walks to the bathroom to shower and do his business, I take the wet wipes from the top drawer as Hunter spreads open his legs. As he lays on his bed, I open up his diaper to clean him up. If he's only wet, then I usually just superficially clean his "area" (since he gets in the shower right after we're done), but if he's messed/pooped in his diaper overnight then I clean him up fully before his shower. Once Hunter is out of the shower, he lays back down on his bed and either his mother or myself put a clean disposable diaper on him, tape up the sides snugly and then slip a pair of plain white briefs over the top of his diaper (cotton briefs help significantly in reducing crinkle sounds produced by his diaper by pressing the diaper closer to him and keeping everything snug and "tight"). Because his diapers are so thickly padded, most of Hunter's clothes are loose fitting so that they hide the fact he's wearing a diaper. Before he leaves for school, we make sure he has at least 2 extra clean diapers and a pair of jeans/shorts...the diapers so the nurse at school can change him (fortunately the nurse happens to be my wife's best friend and has no problem changing Hunter's wet/messy diapers), and the jeans/shorts in case his diaper leaks. The nurse typically only has to change him once a day, but sometimes twice if Hunter has had a lot to drink or has pooped more than normal. Once he gets home, Hunter's diaper is almost always (90% of the time) completely messy as well as wet so he immediately lays down on the living room floor to be cleaned and have his diaper changed. We go about our business (homework, chores, dinner, etc.) until it's time for bed when we usually have to change Hunter's diaper once more. So in all, Hunter goes through roughly 4-5 diapers a day...about half of them messy/poopy. What we've been TRYING to do for the last 3 months or so is teach Hunter how to change his own diapers. In reading posts by other parents on message boards and blogs, many if not most of them have been able to teach their diapered children to change themselves by age 10 or 11 at the latest. However, it's been difficult doing the same with Hunter because he's either been resistant to learning how to change his own diapers, or when he has changed himself he's never been able to get the diaper snugly enough not to leak or almost fall off of him. Because there's not a pull-up style diaper out there thick enough to hold everything he puts into them, traditional tape-up style disposable diapers are the only thing he can wear. Unfortunately it's more difficult to successfully change oneself when you're wearing one of those diapers. Even though he's 12 years old and almost a teenager, Hunter still very much prefers that someone else change his wet/messy diapers. I'm not sure if it's a comfort thing he's using as a crutch or if he legitimately doesn't want to learn. My wife and I have decided though that if he's still not successfully changing his own diapers in 6 months then we're going to have to force him to learn. Since this will be something he has to deal with his whole life, he's going to have to learn soon in order to be even somewhat normal. Right now, regular diaper changes and periodic checks to see if he's wet or pooped his diaper are just part of our daily routine. As I said, it's not always easy being the parent of a 12 year old boy that is still required to wear thick disposable diapers 100% of the time...but there have been funny moments so it's not all bad.

Hi I'm 16. I wear diapers every night and have learned it's not gonna Change. It's good when friends can accept that and still treat u the same. We go camping extra all the time and my best friend even changes me some times. We're not gay it just sometimes I need a bit of help

Posted by Donny on 16/08/2016 at 06:44

I'm not trying to discourage all you teen and 20s people posting on here. I will say however in reality if you are a late teenager or 20 something there is a good chance you will wet your bed for a long time or like ur entire life. I beat myself up mercilessly every morning or in the middle of the night having wet in my sleep. I hated having to wear pin on cloth diapers with plastic pants until I entered high school. I hated not being able to go to overnight camps, or sleep over at a friends house like my brothers could. I hated it when a friend of my brothers or mine would sit down on my bed and hear the loud crinkle of the plastic mattress protector under my sheets. I hated the many times I would fall asleep on a couch, or in a car, and wake up having wet my pants and enduring various people finding out and see me in my peepee pants. I would say first I put myself back into overnight diapers at about age 16 or 17 because as I found out the couple of years I didn't wear diapers the mid night and morning flooded messes were a major hassle. Much more of a hassle than just taking off a wet diaper and dropping it in a washing machine. By age 20 or so I was finally able to adjust my thinking and really minimize the wetting problem by simply accepting it as part of my life. Once I finally underwent a through eurodynamic study was t discovered I had a neurogenic bladder issue without an injury cause. The best my doctor was able to determine was I probably had it since birth which clearly explained why I never had a chance with wetting my bed and further explained why I also struggled forever with minor daytime leakage and having to find a bathroom 15-20 times a day. Live really became 500% easier once I chose to wear disposables during the day to go along with my cloth overnight. The only concern I have now is to make sure I change myself before I saturate my diaper and start to leak. I'm indeed lucky that I never have any irritation or rashes in spite of the fact I'm probably actually in a wet diaper 75% of each and every day. Advise is try and get over the importance of bed wetting. Protect yourself to try and minimize the clean up mess. Try, which is hard, to mot let the condition be hidden and let it get you down. I have found that facing and admitting to my wetting condition is not ever received negatively by anyone I tell about it. I also understand as a teenager this step might be better delayed until age 18 or after. I have been there and teenagers can be immature and cruel. Best of luck to all

I haven't wet my bed since I was 4 but last night I woke up to find myself weeing in my bed. I didn't get it on my clothes as last night it was very hot and I just went without. When I woke though I rushed to the toilet but then had no idea what to do. My parents are real deep sleepers and you cant wake them up without waking up my brother and sister. But it was 5:43 and I have school today so I came to this website and found out I shouldnt be embarrassed.

I am 17 and have always had trouble at night with two things. Falling asleep and wetting my bed. I have had all kinds of tests done - for both problems. I even tried medication for the bed wetting. From the time I was 4 till I was 12 I did take melatonin which was great for helping me sleep. When I sleep I wet the bed. I am usually dry when I don't sleep well. We tried the alarm. It seems like I will have to live my whole life with these two problems. My parents and I are tired of it all.

I have never had a problem with wetting the bed before. I stopped as a young child and had the occasional issue until I was around 6/7. Now at 21 last night was the second time I had wet the bed, once in April around 7am and now last night for the second time. I don't know what is going on. I know yesterday I drank more than I usually do. I wake up once I realise I am urinating in my sleep. The issue is Im doing it in my sleep with my boyfriend in the bed!

Posted by Optional on 09/05/2016 at 11:58

been a bed wetter forever. I cant get a good night rest because of the fear of waking up wet. I've found 1 solution, sleeping sitting up on a couch. Sleeping sitting up for some reason always works. Its like it stops me from going because of the position is holding firmer. Dont know why my brain wont signal me to get up. its the worst thing ever and depressing. back starts to hurt after sleeping sitting up for so long.

Hi, I'm 15 and I bedwet at random times. I stopped when I was around 13-14? But sometimes it just randomly happened and I have no idea what went wrong because I did not dream of the toilet and even felt the urge to pee, I was actually in a deep sleep. Plus, it's really nice to know that its not just me having the problem of bedwetting, I can't talk to my friends about this :(

Posted by Optional on 26/04/2016 at 04:48

Hey guys, I'm 24 years old and going on 25 this August. I am a lifelong bed wetter. This has been an emotional strain my whole life. When I was young my parents and I thought I would outgrow it since my brothers would wet the bed too, my dad did as well until he was 18-19 and my grandpa as well. But here I am almost 25 and still wetting the bed every night and pretty heavily. The only way I won't wet the bed is if I sleep for 1-2 hours max. If I sleep for more than 2 hours I am guaranteed to wake up wet. I am also kind of heavy set which I think doesn't help for my bladder and I'm very likely to go when I sleep face down versus my sides or back. There was a point in my life from 14-19 I wasn't wetting the bed and that was great. I don't know if it was because I was in better shape or just happier but I've tried everything and I mean everything to stop this. Maybe expect for drugs/pills. I use I continence overnight diapers and they do NOTHING for me. I still leave the bed soaked. And this is such a strain on me because I think and feel so unhygienic and have to take extreme measures to stay clean and get the urine smell of of me. Also washing the sheets every damn day and replacing my bed every year is very costly. I would like some advice is anyone has any. Thank you in advance.

It's nice to see that I'm not the only one going through this, especially that there are other boys going through this and I'm not the only one. I take pills before night and they don't even work that often. I've tried the alarm, it worked none of the time, I tried no caffeine like tea or other drinks and it doesn't work. One time had like 10 glasses of tea one time and I was fine. It's like my body clicks a random button when to do it. And I know no one personally who also wets the bed. I have only slept at a friends house 3 times, which was only because I took a little higher dosage of the pills and had absolutely no drinks the entire day. I don't like having to worry about whether or not I'll be dry. I hate it so much. Since the time I have been at my church for middle school and high school youth groups, there has been 6 camps (2 each year) where you go for 1 week. Every single time I don't go people ask me why and I don't tell them. I wanna get rid of this stupid embarrassing problem permanently!

Posted by Ronnie on 28/02/2016 at 07:14

Its really depressing for me because i've been bedwetting since i was born and i stopped bedwetting for some time when i was 13,but then i started again and it never stopped and so now i usually stay up till at least 2:00 to go to the toilet because if i don't do that i'll bedwet and its really embarassing and it always makes me feel disappointed and now my mom thinks i've stopped bedwetting:(. I've nevr even been able to sleepover at someones place because i'm scared i'll bedwet,its become like a phobia to me.

I started bedwetting about 3 months after turning 14 due to some emotional trama and depression.At first,my parents had me wearing goodnites to bed and i was wetting thru them.Then mom laid the bombshell on me that they were switching me to "cloth diapers and rubberpants[plasticpants]" for the duration of my bedwetting!They bought several packages of the Gerber flat cloth diapers in the 24x27 inch size and mom sewed them together to make several 10 ply thick diapers and then they got adult size plastic pants in pastel colors along with pastel diaper pins.That first night,i had to lay on my bed and mom slid a diaper under me,then baby powdered me,then pinned the diaper on me with pink diaper pins,then she pulled pink "rubberpants" up my legs and over the diaper.They fit me blousy and i looked like a baby!My bedwetting finially stopped about 5 months ago and i am happy.Mom still keeps a couple of the cloth diapers and a couple pair of the rubberpants in my drawer just in case i start wetting again.

Hi I am 30 years old,I've had a problem with peeing the bed a few times the first time I could remember was when I was a teenager and I had to live with my dad and was not happy about it, it was only once thou and I just thought it was because I was in a,strange place and ill be ok. I was right it didnt happen again. Then it happened again when I was 21 a pregnant but I figured it was because I was pregnant. Age 24 and pregnant again it happened. Age 30 it happens every 3 months and I'm married and haven't told my husband, I just put another blanket over my pee mess and wait til he gets up and then I clean the sheets and blankets and my side of the bed. I dont know why I do it I dont drink anything before bed and i get up alot during the night to go pee so I dont know what's wrong with me. Can stress cause bedwetting?

Posted by Optional on 25/09/2015 at 12:31

I was a bed wetter until early puberty and continued wearing diapers at night until I graduated from the university. I have had some dry spells, but I still have frequent incidences at night and now I am experiencing daytime problems as well requiring relatively thick cotton diapers and plastic pants.

Posted by Graham on 30/07/2015 at 12:22

I used to wet my bed regularly (almost every night) until I was about 15, then it stopped except for about a few incidents, usually because I had been drinking or I was very tired. Then I started doing it again more frequently in my mid thirties. Twenty years later I wet while I am asleep most nights again, and it's not because I drink alcohol, and it doesn't seem to matter what or how much I drink. No doctor or any other medical professional has ever been able to find a reason for it, or cure it, I now sleep in a nappy every night and I have done for over 15 years now. I also have to be careful during the day and go to the toilet whenever I feel the need to avoid wetting myself. And I suspect that it will become worse as I get older. But I refuse to let it bother me. I wear glasses because my eyes don't work very well; some people have hearing aids; some need pacemakers or other devices or medications to help things that go wrong with the body. I wear nappies because my bladder doesn't work properly, and because none of the medications I have tried have ever worked. It's just one of those things as far as I am concerned, and I no longer let it worry me. My wife prefers me to wear a nappy to save the sheets and so that I don't wee all over her. So I wet myself while I am a sleep - yeah, so what? It's no big deal. And even if I do start wetting myself during the day too, then I will wear nappies 24/7 if necessary.

Posted by J. on 24/04/2015 at 03:52

I was a chronic bedwetter until I was about 13. Would wake up wet just about every morning. Once I started going through puberty the bedwetting started to subside. By the time I graduated high school, I was still peeing my bed about 3 or 4 nights a week. Sometimes dry for a week or more, then for no reason, wet for a week or more. I am now 26 and not much has changed. I sleep in diapers and plastic pants (and have since I was about 15) and have the tell tale rubber sheet under my mattress pad. Of course everyone in my family knows I am still a bedwetter, but it is a very well kept secret. At this point in my life, I have just accepted the fact that this is how it will be.

Posted by Things that helped me. on 15/04/2015 at 05:23

I had that problem ever since I can remember, My mom took me to many different doctors and I was always told different things. That I had a weak bladder that I had too much stress. I tried many different things I had to wear diapers. at 15 It still hadn't gone away. But I found a few things that helped me control it. I wouldn't drink any liquids 2-3 hours before bed. If I went to a friends house I would make sure to not drink much if I slept over. I also found that if I slept in a cold room I would wet the bed. SO I would make sure I was warm in bed. I am now 20 and living with my boyfriend. He knew about my problem after a few months that we started dating but he didn't care. I had a few accidents while sleeping on the same bed as him. But he never judged me. One time one of my doctors told me that it was possible the my uterus or bladder was positioned wrong and that it could also be a factor. So my mom took me to get it fixed. It was like a massage it did help a little bit. Fortunately it has now gone away. It hasn't happened in over 2 years. but I do suggest that if you have this problem you ask for help. Ask your doctor don't be scared. This is something very hard to live with alone.It can isolate you especially as a teen. You're not alone ask for help.

I just started wetting the bed I've not had this problem for as long as I can remember. It started about a month ago. I've noticed that's it's been slightly uncomfortable to pee and the need is much more urgent also when I do go to the bathroom it's a pretty small amount and I'm going a lot more frequently

Im thirteen and ive wet the bed all my life and my parents take it as an act of laziness even though i have no way to control my bed wetting problem, i dont have friends over because if i do theyll be able to see the plastic wrap my dad put in order to stop the urine from making contact with the matress, and if my brother has a friend over, its really embarassing when they notice it. Up to when i was eleven i wore those training diapers to stop my self from peeing in my bed but it was a waste of alot of money and all i could do was cry because my parents gave up on helping me because i still wet the the bed....i dont know what to do, someone please suggest some ideas..

I have been wetting my bed for as long as I can remember. I hate the feeling of waking up in a very cold weather wet. The feeling is horrible because you wake up super cold and the smell is horrid! I hate having to clean up after myself because I am an adult I hope that I stop soon because it's very frustrating! I have a boyfriend and how will I ever explain this to him? Like how will I ever explain that I can't sleep over nor spend overnights with him because of that embarrassment? It really sucks but what sucks more is that nothing helps and I've been looking for answers everywhere! If you were or know someone that used to wet their bed at an old age please email me and please let me know what they did? Thank you so much! This actually helped me because I feel free and comfortable

Posted by Optional on 03/03/2015 at 04:46

Whenever I wet the bed my mom calls me lazy even though I get up during the night. The last time I wet the bed was last night. I got up to use the washroom twice, this morning around 7 am my shorts were wet. I don't know what's wrong with me

Posted by Ella on 05/02/2015 at 10:50

So I guess there are more people like myself than I thought which is reassuring in a weird way. I'm 18 and I still wet the bed pretty often. It ranges from a couple times a week to every couple weeks. It's never fun at all on school mornings when I don't have time to clean it up before leaving and then have to deal with it when I get home. Or whenever I have a friend come home with me and I have to come up with an excuse to run upstairs and clean it up before they can see. I've tried bed wetting alarms and two different medicines. I've had little success, but nothing has completely helped. I have to use a water-resistant pad on my bed and I have to stay up later than I would like sometimes I order to make sure I urinate before bed. Not fun AT ALL. so yeah you're not alone.

Posted by scared but will succeed on 28/01/2015 at 04:10

Hello! I am 99% positive that the reason I have wet the bed for the past 18 and 3/4 years is because of m deep sleep. I have seen countless doctors, used many different alarms, had many x-rays taken, and tried many different water tricks. (I tried reducing water, more water.) none worked. sometimes I can go a couple weeks without doing it but when it des happen it is bad. My father said if I drink a quart of water as soon as I wake up in the morning it will help my body and also train my bladder more. he says it is a Japanese therapy. I will try that but if it doesn't work I will try to find ways to reduce my deep sleep faze. Wish me luck.

Im 33 and i still wet my bed. It is not everyday actually. In a month, maybe twice...but sometimes not even once.Usually i would have a dream where by i urine in a toilet but actually when i woke up, i found out that i wet my bed. i see it as maybe i drank too much of water so i never see a doctor. But do u think i should consult a doctor although i dont really bedwetting everyday?

Hi, I've wet the bed my whole life. It's been a constant problem and my family just thinks I'm not trying, I wore pull-ups to bed until I was about 14 and the I moved on to poise pads. It's very embarrassing and I try to take steps to prevent it but nothing seems to help. My only dry nights are when I stay up half the night and empty my bladder right before I go to sleep. I recently turned 18 and now this has become something looming over my shoulder due to me going off to college and staying in a dorm...

Posted by Kenzie on 19/01/2015 at 01:32

I'm 14 and I still wet the bed my mom thinks it's my fault and that I'm to lazy to get up and go to the bathroom. Every now and then like a full week I won't pee but then it just comes back. I'm afraid to spend the night at friends house because it's happened before and I was almost caught. My friends say I have low self-esteem and their right I don't go to party's or do anything but stay in my room. Please help my mom has me thinking it's my fault. I'm embarrassed to talk about, even right now. Please help!!!

Posted by Optional on 14/01/2015 at 07:20

My son has been a persistent bed wetter for nearly 19 years, both myself, my sister, my brother, all were bed wetters as was my father my sons father was also a bed wetter, so there is definitely a hereditary factor involved. My son has tried everything. Alarms dont work, he just sleeps through them, medication is hit an miss, limiting water really makes no difference. My son was diagnosed with a learning disability similar to dyslexia, but more complex. dyslexia runs in my family. I truly believe that night time incontinence is linked to how the brain processes information and that this is why the signal to wake up to pee is realised too late, the signal is basically interrupted. My other theory is puberty My brother wet the bed into his early 20's then it stopped completely. Me and my sister were both 13/14 I believe this is when we reached our true physical maturity. I have never and will never punish any of my children for wetting the bed (unless they never told me and it stank lol) It is a disability and one that is not recognized enough as the stress and embarrassment it causes can lead to social withdrawal and depression.

I'm 19 years old and I still wet the bed. I don't know what to do to stop it. I've wet the bed my whole life and I'm getting sick of it and feel disgusting from it. I've used pull-ups, been on several different medications which normally work for a while until I become immune.. Are there any surgerys or something that can be done to make this stop. I've looked into catheters but none of them really fit what I need them for.. I also still have day wettings from time to time and my stomach hurts when I need to urinate. My doctor seems to have given up on me and just keeps giving me medication.. Which never works. If anyone has anything ideas that can help me or that I can recommend to my doctor please let me know!

Posted by Optional on 07/12/2014 at 02:34

I have bedwetting since the age of 11. I had to wear pull ups at night. I wasn't wetting as much for the next few years, but now I have a few accidents still. And I hate getting wet but I'm not aloud to wear pull-ups as a punishment. I'm dealing with a lot in life but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. Glad to know I'm not alone though.

Posted by Optional on 30/11/2014 at 03:29

I have had this probleme from a while now (5-13 and problably more years to come). It started when I was around 5 and it hasn't gone away, I've had tried everything; pills, alarms, setting alarms, wet alarms, reducing drinking, doctors appoiment, chyropracters and everything and nothing has worked. I now hate sleeping because everyday I wake up wet or in the middle of the night. My parents, family and doctors all say it will go away on its own but they've been saying that since a young age and I'm starting to give up. No parent or doctor will ever know the embarrassment I have to go through. Doctors tell me to where dipears but they are uncomfterble and none fit well, now I hate sleeping and also can't sleep. I feel like no one understands. I'm starting to thing it has something to do with muscle function, blater containment, spinal problemes or something that I can't control because nothing has worked.

Posted by still wetting on 27/10/2014 at 07:29

I have been bedwetting since I was 11 years old and had tried about everything. After nothing else seemed to work my mom bought me diapers the were made for special needs kids. It took me quite a while to get used to wearing them, but it was alot better than waking up to a wet bed. My mom did not make this a punishment, but a solution. It still might take a bit but i am down to maybe a accident twice a week now instead of the nightly accidents i used to have

I have had bedwetting problems since I was 11, after checkups, doctors and tests it seems something I just had problems with. After trying a number of pads, underwear and finally went back to diapers. They work the best for me and no one other than my mom knows about it. I did resist the diapers at first but with the goodnights leaking pretty often, my mom came to me and said we need to look at something with more protection. She told me she had bought a package of diapers for me, I about freaked out and she made a deal with me. I was going to try these, on package and see how it was. So here I was 12 years old and back in a diaper for the first time since I was little. Thing was it really wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be and I slept a lot better. Over time it just became my usual night time wear, and since it was just my mom and me no big deal.

I am 15 years old and have wet the bed my whole life. I was potty trained at age 1. But still wet the bed. My mom has bought me diapers, controlled what I drink at night, has set hourly alarms to wake me up but the problem continues. I cry a lot because this situation is really stressful and embarrassing. To top it off my younger sister (14) makes fun of me and tries to use it against me to get what she wants by threatening me into thinking she is going to tell everyone about my "problem".. what can I do. I sometimes stay up really late and other times u don't even sleep because I don't want to wet the bed. This has caused me problems in school and I have really big dark circles under my eyes I look like a zombie. I know this is a really embarrassing topic for me to talk about but I need help.

I've recently started to wet the bed but I never did as a child. I don't really understand why my habits before bed haven't changed or anything. It started about 2 months ago and has gotten worse I now wet the bed at least 2 nights a week :(

Hi. im 14 and i still pee in the bed. I've had this problem sknce i was 7 years old, and after 7 long years i still cant get rid of it. im often stressed because my grandparents think im being lazy, but its really not the case. i go to the bathroom atleast twice before bed and still wake up wet. i cry myself back to sleep because its been 7 years and urination is still got a hold on me. i cry because i already have no friends, im basically a loner and the time i spent with myself is love and hate, i hate myself for peeing. ive been dry for many times before and it always comes in the same cycle. i really wanna commit suicide. it really hurts me this much..

Hello, I'm 17 and have had bed wetting my entire life. It usually occurs at least 3-5 nights a week, sometimes more. I've used wetting alarms, DDAVP, oxybutinin, take in no caffeine and limited citrus products/carbonation. I also watch how much I drink at all times, espicially late at night and get cotton mouth all the time as a side effect. I've seen my ureologist for 2 years now and he seems to think there's no pysical issue. When I was 15 I had an ultrasound of my bladder, reproductive parts, liver, kidneys, pancreas, and abdominal aorta done and the results came back normal. I've also tried waking up and going to the restroom and that only helps every now and then. I cannot figure out why I'm wetting and it's really embarrassing and annoying. No medications are helping and I would like to know if anyone else had had this problem? Is there any other possible solutions?

I used to wet the bed as a kid but stopped. I cut way back on liquids but still have a small bladder. A few years ago I started getting kidney stones which were very painful and after surgery and passing several stones within a few years my urologist said I have to drink a lot more water to prevent stones from forming and keep my kidneys flushed. I started sleep wetting again on a regular basis and my uroligist finds no physical problem other than I may be having to urinate more often because I'm now drinking what I should be. Alarms to wake me have not helped and the only thing I have been able to do is wear reusable protection to bed every night. It's embaressing but I live alone, no one has to know and no way am I going to cut back on my liquids again and risk more kidney stones. I guess at this point diapers are the lesser of the two evils.

I wet the bed a lot. I have a genetic disorder with my bladder and I get it from my mom, but she told me that it stopped when she was 12, why hasn't it stopped for me yet?

I was potty trained by 2 and I had usual accidents when I was little. It decreased in jr high and high school but it still occurred. I just graduated and It seems to have gotten worse this summer like an everyday thing. I'm scared to have friends sleep over and vice versa. I'm tired of having to wash every day. I'm 18 I should've got over this years ago , why do I still pee in bed

Posted by jim on 05/07/2014 at 10:07

I have recently begun to experience bed wetting incidents. I think it is because I am so deeply asleep that I am completely unaware of the passing until some time after it has happened, essentially it is warm and not noticeable at first then cools. I drink quite a bit at night but only in terms of units rather than quantities I drink red wine usually about a half litre and a small quantity of spirits.The problem is spasmodic and I begin to wonder if particular additives or components of red wine are a factor. I remembered the other day the French for Dandelion is Pis en Lit!

I have had this problem seens i was a toddler and now that i am an adult i dont now what can i do to be done with wetting the bed a night can you help me with my problem please

Posted by Joseph on 21/06/2014 at 07:07

I was potty trained by 2, but i have had accidents throughout the years, besides last night, the last time i had an accident in the night was when I was 8. Last night, I was so focused on the dream I was having, I didn't realize I had to pee until I was wet and warm. This shouldn't be a problem for me, I know the sensation of having to pee in the night and have woken up countless times to go to the restroom, so I really don't understand why this is an issue and it makes me scared and confused, and makes me ask myself questions like, how in the world am I gonna tell my mom I need my entire bedspread as well as the mattress washed and sanitized? And how is she gonna react to the fact that her 15 year old son pissed himself while dreaming?!

I'm a 21 year old female . I' was completely potty trained at one then relapsed at 3 . I don't know why . Neither does my mother or primary care physician . So they sent me to a urologist to see why or what can be done to stop this . I've seriously been on EVERY medicine ( which is to strong for my body , it caused me to hallucinate when I was 5 and I've tried it again in the middle of last year and I still hallucinated on it ) I've tried alarms and having my mother wake me up frequently , and pampers but it's so much urine I go through it . And this is me putting three on . I've been to the psychologist and they said that I was molested and that they could play a part in it . But I don't remember it . I know I've always been promiscuous , since elementary but I don't remember it . I'm pregnant with my first child and I'm nervous because my bed wetting might affect my son . I wash clothes almost every night . I remember 3 years ago my boyfriend moved in with me then it completely stopped . I was shocked because I never went a couple days without wetting the bed . It's actually kind of funny that my boyfriend has the same problem except his stopped before we got together and it only happens when he consumes a lot of alcohol ! So he accepts that I have the bladder problem very supportive , it just sucks having it because I'm 21 . I want to have fun , friends over and drink and party but I don't get to have that experience .

I started having regular accidents at work 3 years ago,so I I made an appointment to see my doctor who reffered me to a urologist who did some tests to find the cause of my incontinence,she couldent find anything wrong with me physically speaking, so deffered my request to get nappies for free on the Nhs,since then my problems have got so bad that I have had to resort to buying them online which has cost me a fortune as they are expensive,Iam not a adbl or have a fettish for nappies but i feel more comfortable & secured knowing i am wearing nappies even at work, Iam not ashamed to wear nappies/diapers 24/7 as they are prevent me from having embarrasing accidents,I was pottytrained as a todler when I was 2/3 years old but have had no choice to return to wearing nappies as a adult.

This has burdened me deeply. I'm 24 and have been wetting the bed my whole life. i believe deep down this has caused me to isolate and avoid situations my whole life. naturally today this behavipr hasaffected my whole life. I'm depressed. I'm alone. I have such a negative look on life and other people. I'm unhappy. I have little confidence i feel mentally retarded sometimes. the shit i type into google i can't even believe. this is not a normal way to live. Friends family and my now ex gf of 5 years look at me weird and have made fun of me for it. All i can say is people this is ruined my youth and is now killing what is suppost to be primetime, young adulthood. when/if i have kids one day it will be imperative to train them to not ever go through such an embarrassing life. i encourage you to do the same.

I am 27 and I have been unable to keep myself dry at night my whole life. Its VERY rare that I wake up dry. I have some bathroom accidents during the day, but not near as bad as at night. Most of them are because I always seem to think I can hold it longer than I actually can or I sometimes don't even realize how badly I have to go until its too late. Yesterday, I had an accident in the bathroom at Target because I waited too long and just barely made it in the door before I wet on the the floor. I feel crazy. I need help but I don't know where to turn.

I am having, perhaps minor at this moment, bed wetting probelems. I have chosen to wear cloth diapers and plastic pants. I am debating whether to use plastic or rubber bed sheets. Equally as I also seem to have post voiding dribble, I am considering wearing my diapers all the time. Am I over reacting.

Posted by Optional on 05/07/2013 at 05:46

I could never achieve nitetime total dryness for more than 6 month. Every few months I wake up wet, and it restarts like during my adolescence (I was an every-nite-enuretic until 14). The best solution working for me is to turn back to PU pants and contour diaps Plus ALARM: after not more than 2-3 buzzing nites I get back to nite time continence. When I married (age 27) I wetted several times per month, This was especially embarrassing when going to vacations at my parents in law's place, Or when my kids noticed that their dad could not outgrow enuresis. Difficult indeed to keep it secret! somebody will allways discover when you dont expect it , that - your bedroom is smelly this particular morning or - a used diap in the garbidge trunk (even wrapped in plastic bag) or -your pair of plastic pants that once out of a thousand times you forgot in the bathroom!

Posted by hailee on 30/06/2013 at 12:28

I started wetting the bed last year when i was 14due to a severe weaking of my bladder muscles.i was imediately put into cloth diapers and rubber pants with out a choice and have been wearing them ever since.the diapers are regular baby diapers and pinned on me with diaper pins and the rubber pants are adult size and i dont like wearing them,let alone having mom put them on me at bedtime.

Not been a constant bed wetter at present but it has happened at least every couple of months for my whole life; apart from it was every day until I was about 7. I'm not sure if my problem is psychological or a bladder problem, my suspicion is the latter

Posted by Youngman on 26/05/2013 at 04:32

I am 58 years old and have wet the bed all my life.I also wet my pants during the day.I wet myself about once an hour and don't feel anything until my pants are wet.Sometimes I wear diapers sometimes not.Even wearing diapers,if I cannot change them the third time I wet they start filling up and leaking into my pants.I have to wear diapers at night because I usually wet the bed 5 or 6 times a night.During the daytime I just usually wet my pants.I have tried diapers,catheters,nothing really works well,I still end up with wet pants.

Posted by Sarah on 04/02/2013 at 05:06

I've wet the bed all my life; I can't ever remember waking up dry. Until I was 15, my mum always kept me in nappies, but then she decided that wearing a nappy was the cause of the problem because she thought that I was wetting because my brain knew it was alright because I had a nappy on. But it didn't make any difference; I kept on wetting night after night, and after three years I was put back in nappies. I gave up worrying about it then, and I have slept in a nappy ever since. Sometimes I wet my knickers in the daytime too. I can't help it. I sometimes wear a nappy in the daytime if I am going on a long journey or I am visiting a strange place just in case I can't find a toilet. My husband supports me and he doesn't care that I have to wear nappies and wet my knickers. I don't think I'll ever stop wetting, but I don't mind. There are a lot worse things in life than wetting yourself.

This is embarrassing at 3:30 I awake up to dream of water fountains waking noticing I wet the bed even more embarrasing I peed on my wife!! She was bothered by it which made it worse, I cleaned the bed but it wasn't a lot of it on the bed it was more on my Jock area and her leg I'm trippin balls excuse my language but I started thinking how could of this happened, what caused this and I have been taking pain medication and inflammatory pills for my back injury before bed could that of been the cause? What can I do? Is this normal should I be of concern?

Posted by Karen on 15/01/2013 at 05:16

I have wet the bed all my life, tried many things nothing helps so I live with it. I wear protective underware day and night because sometimes i wet my pants it just hits and i know i have to wet so i do.

I'm 17 years old male. When I was very young (about 3-4) I was wetting bed at night. Than it stoped. But when I was 14 and puberty started my wetting came back. Unfortunately one year ago I had few accident with wetting during day. Since this I have had to wear diaper not only in bed but whole day. I don't know what to do cause it's embarrasing. I have to change my diaper at school toilet. And it's not joke.

Posted by Optional on 29/12/2012 at 04:14

Wetting the bed is not the worst thing in the world.I wet my pants at school some time ago you get a lot of 'flack' for a time and then everyone forgets.For some reason I still have my once wet pants.I think it is to remind me.Just 'one of those things' :)

I know that some people like wetting the bed.Not me,but every now and then I wake up wet or wetting.I don't want to always be in 'pants'[Dri Nights].I just never know when I will wet the bed.I don't know if it is the dream of going to the toilet or wetting the bed that causes the dream.

I am 67 years old now, and I have always had nocturnal enuresis, to give it a name or bed wetter, I have been married now for 48 years and my wife helps me purchase my plastic pants which I wear over my Euron nappy pad every night, I am being supplied with the pads by my district nurse who works through the NHS continence service, I have regular urine flow tests and bladder scans, and they also up date me if another nappy pad becomes available, but when we go into hospital, they wont let us wear our own pads or pants, my wife as told them she will replace my pants every day and bring my pads as well, but they say we have our own pads and dont allow plastic pants because they dont have cleaning facilities for the pants, so I have spent many a worried night wearing unfamiliar pads and no pants, the result being a wet bed and complete embarrassment all round, I know the mattresses are cover in a thick PVC, but they still need cleaning if they get wet, I wish this issue could be cleared up to save blushes all round. Thank You.

Posted by Optional on 07/05/2012 at 10:57

You may find this silly but with me being male I would be much more confident if a female doctor was to reassure and explain that it is common and that theirs nothing to worry about. Where as if I was to find the courage to visit a doctor, a woman would make me feel shy and uncomfortable.

Posted by Nick on 09/11/2011 at 12:52

Wetting the bed is not a 'fault' issue.It might be a dream or just out of nowhere you wake up 'wet'.Just don't blame youself.Strage as it seems,feeling guilty about it causes it because it haunts your dreams.I wet every now and then but if I let it bother me I wet more :))

I'm seventeen years old, and I started wetting the bed when I was about 7 or 8. We went to the doctor, and I was prescribed some pills, which worked for a few months then stopped. I was then given an alarm that I wore at night, which was awful. I stopped for about two years until I was 10-11, then it re-started and I haven't stopped since. I wear Depends now, and I'm so used to it. It's holding me back from living my life, and it's caused me so much mental anguish. There are only about four people that know about it. I can't even tell my best friend because I'm disgusted with myself.

Posted by Optional on 12/02/2011 at 03:08

Ive wet the bed since i was 4, i think, and am now 17. I go throught phases of not wetting for a week or so, then i will wet for a week or two every night, without fail. I usually fina that i wet most ofter, just before, during and just after my period most. Is this uncommon? And do you know a reason maybe why this is happening? Any help would be amazing!

Posted by HNF on 24/01/2011 at 08:56

I have been wetting the bed all my life. I've tried pills, the alarm thing and those pullups, but nothing seems to work. The doctor told me there was a kind of surgery I could get, but my mom declined cuz he also said it would stop when I hit puberty. Unfortunately, I got my period in July of 2010 and I had it for about a week, then it stopped and I was expecting another in august but I never got my period again. My dad recently bought me another alarm to try. The first day, I didn't wet the bed, the second it was only a little, and now it's back to normal. I still wet the bed at 13 years old and I would love any help anyone would be willing to give me.

I am a 15 year old girl and I started wetting my bed almost every night. I've been wetting my bed for as long as i can remember and then when I was 12-13 I finally stopped. Then all of a sudden, about a month ago I started again. The only new thing that has happened is me joining track and my mom blames that. My parents always ask why I do it but I just dont know!!! Why did I start again?? Before it only happened once every like 5 months now its a few times a week. PLease help.

Posted by Kim on 11/12/2010 at 02:30

My parents seem to think I'm not even trying now. My dad asks me why I didn't wake up, when that's the cause of the bed wetting to start with. I've been dealing with this my entire life, I've missed trips and sleepovers that I still hear about year later. I want to beat it SO badly. But after 14 years, I'm starting to wonder if it's even possible...

Posted by Nat on 29/11/2010 at 05:17

I can relate to SP, im 19 and started wetting again when I was 15ish. My dad just looks at me with disgust every time and insists that i could stop if i tried! I have to ware drynites although there a bit small, im made buy these myself, going into the shop is soooo embarrassing!

Hello, I am an 18 year old female and I have wet the bed all my life. I refuse to disclose my name because, quite frankly, complete mortification is the last thing on my list. I suppose I would feel a little better about my situation if my father didn't treat me like complete shit about being a nasty bitch as he calls it. As if I loove pissing myself every single life. Look out world, I'm living the glamorous life. (sarcasm) I've cut myself off from sleepovers or any situation that permits me to sleep at someone else's house. I get humiliated enough from my own family. I don't need it from others. I've tried going to the doctors. I even asked my dad to take me back recently so I could get checked out but he insist that it's not my body, it's me. When I was little, the doctor told me not to drink anything after six. I got so desperate once that I didn't drink anything after four. I would go to bed with cotton mouth, thristy and frustrated. But, of course, like clockwork I woke up wet and disgusted with myself. I know that I can personally relate to every single person on here. Well, maybe not all. The mental stress you go through wondering why me. What did I ever do to deserve this? Hn, I must have been one sick little sadest in my past life and this is my punishment. Everything I try to do to help myself, my situation, doesn't work. I'm at the end of my rope, my wit's end, my ship is sinking. Please, for help I beg thee.

I have been weting the bed most of my life,my wife understands and assists me,I wear PVC pants and a nappy at nights, they work and keep me dry at nights,we hide the pants and nappies when on holiday,so nobody knows about my problem,I dont suppose there is anything I can do about it now.

I am 17 years old and I still wet my bed sometimes. I have always been a bedwetter and although it has slowed down, it still happens. I wet every night until I was 15. Now, I have my mattress protected in case I have an accident. I wear Depend Pull-ups when I have a "series" of accidents I which still happens. I am a deep sleeper and also have a weak bladder. There have been n few occasions where I have accidentally peed in my pants during the day too. Now that is embarrassing!

I have wet the bed my whole life. I leak ever day just doing normal things like walking and sitting and standing. Do not get me started on laughing, coughing or sneezing. It is so embarrassing because I am 19. I just want a normal life. I had Kideny reflux when I was 2 until I was 13 then I was diagnosed with a Neurogenic Bladder. Last Christmas the doctor suggested a InterStim procedure. it worked up until about a month or so ago then it went crazy and I can't stop wetting the bed period. I am so tired of this and just want it all to stop!

I had started wetting the bed at 13 and I still do almost every night I've tried different strstegiies to stop but I kep doing it, is so hard i went to my dr he didn't do much besides tell me I could have a infection there which would need to be scanned to check x I think I had started because of my abusive parents and stressful school so I try to relax myself so I wet the bed still on a regular basis dr told my parents there making me where pull ups and i really don't want to wet the bed agen at my m8s sleep over x

For the past few months, I've noticed yellow stains on my mattress. I was hoping it was a mixture of my sweat and the stain from my mattress, but I think that's just hopefull thinking. I'm obviously wetting the bed. What can I do?

I began wetting the bed several weeks ago. I assumed it was due to the stress of losing my job and the emotional guilt I felt at the additional pressures I had forced in my family household. I secured a new job yesterday but wet the bed during the night. I don't have a solution. It is very distressing. I will possibly resort to buying protective underwear or some other product until this resolves itself. I am not sure what I can do to resolve it myself.

I've started wetting the bed just last year, and it's been going on and on since. It's really starting to wear away at me, and I just want a way to deal with it so I don't have to stress over it anymore. Maybe a little early to be resigned to it, but I don't really have the energy to spare to stress over it. I've started just wearing diapers to bed. It's an embarrassing solution, but for now it's letting me sleep easier, and they're honestly starting to get comfortable as I get used to them.

i've had a plastic sheet on my bed for 10 years. i'm so frustrated with wetting the bed. my mom and doctor keep saying i'll grow out of it, but honestly, it doesn't feel that way. over the years the number of times i've wet the bed have decreased though. my doctor gave me this pill called DDAVP, and i only use it on nights where i'm not in my own bed. you can use it every night too (i choose not to). don't be afraid to tell people like your mom, dad, or a close friend. they can help you deal with it. also, don't be afraid to go to a doctor's because they should be able to help you. you never know until you try

My brother and I have wet the bed since we were little. Its genetic, my father wet when he was young. My brother stopped when he turned about 13 well i am now 18 and I still wet the bed. Sometimes I have dry nights. Sometimes dry for a week straight then it will start again. Told it was from stress but even when i dont have anything to be stressed about. My boyfriend knows because i peed on him once. lol but he understood and supports me through it. My best friend also knows and she understands. Its really embarrassing but tell the person your always with like a boyfriend, girlfriend, or bestie, they understand. They find out eventuall anyways.I thought it would have stopped by now but I dont know what to think anymore. Im going to see my doctor to find out the cause and my options. Its work....and i wish hope for everyone with this problem.

Yes, I'm sixteen years old and i still freakin wet my freakin bed. I'm going crazy because it's so embarrassing. My parents found it out recently and my dad is killing me and telling me how disgusting it is. it's not my fault! i felt so alone but now through this site, not as much as before.

Posted by john on 06/01/2010 at 05:24

I feel very embarrassed about having to start to wear a nappy and a pair of incontinence pants for bed and have a rubber sheet under me for bed wetting. I live on my own andI feel worried about visiting members of my family seeing any of these things while they are hanging up while drying after washing but feel too embarrassed also to tell them that I have started to wet the bed,so I'm not sure how to approach this this situation.

Posted by Tye on 18/09/2009 at 03:37

I am 21 and I used to wet the bed every night up until I was 16. When I was 11 I found out that I only have 1 kidney and it needed to be operated on. After hitting 16 it became less frequent, after I hit 19 I stopped wetting before I started my period every month and I find that I do not wet when someone is sleeping next to me. Unfortunately this problem has come back and I don't know what to do about it. It only seems to happen on the nights that my fiance and I have sex. I don't know why this is happening, but I want it to stop.

I have been wetting my bed for the last 15 years, ever since my wife passed. I feel this website has helped greatly and has minimised my early morning accidents. Thank-you

I have been bed wetting since I was a child. I thought it would stop as got older but it is now worse than ever. I am bed wetting on a nightly basis(every night)it is getting very bad. I even get up at least twice in the night desperate for the loo and can still wake up wet in the morning. It is now driving me mad, I just want to go to sleep and wake up nice and dry. I dont get into deep sleeps never have really, so I dont know why this happens every night?? Can anyone help me?

I havent "wet the bed" since i was very young, but a couple months ago it happened, i woke up right after, terrified and washed everything before anyone woke up. Now i fear it will happen again, and i have the strong urge to urinate every time a lay down to sleep even if i use the restroom right before

My roommate has wet our futon twice in the last week. We have no idea why she does this and she doesn't own up to it, even though there are even still yellow stains on the futon. She finally washed the sheets after asking her to. What can I do to solve this problem? How do you confront it or what precautions do you take to prevent it or keep it sanitary?
