Bedwetting

It may be reassuring to know that you are not alone.  Around half a million teenagers wet the bed at night – that equals one in 75 teenagers.

Bedwetting occurs when the bladder empties during sleep. Some teenagers wet the bed once or twice a week, others every night. It can be embarrassing for you and stressful for you and your parents, however it is not your fault.

There is always something you can do to help yourself. If you haven’t already you should see a doctor to be assessed and find out why it is happening to you. There are treatments available to help the majority of causes of bedwetting. If you have tried treatments in the past and they didn’t work (such as an alarm), you may find that now you are older they will work.
