HAD ENOUGH OF THIS BEDWETTING STUFF? YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

First thing’s first. Teenage boys wet the bed sometimes.

Your body is still developing and not everything runs like clockwork yet. Having said that, we know that it’s not ideal. You want to go on an overnight school trip, camping with the guys, or just to a sleepover, and you’re worried about wetting the bed.

You can get through this, just like heaps of guys your age.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT BEDWETTING

  • Talk about it. Find someone you trust, like a parent or school counsellor, and let them know a bit about what’s going on. You will be surprised how much getting it off your chest can help.
  • Listen a bit. People will have opinions about bedwetting solutions. Some of them might not be amazing, but hear them out. Something will stick and it could end bedwetting forever, for you.
  • Accept help. There is no shame is taking the help that is offered to you. You are not alone and you don’t have to work through an inconvenient phase in your life without some support.

 

BEDWETTING TIPS FOR TEENAGE BOYS

Here are two key things to try. One DO and one DON’T.

  1. DO train your muscle.
    Your bladder is a hollow, muscular, and very elastic organ. That means that like any muscle, it benefits from a bit of a workout now and then. The best way to stretch and build the muscles of your bladder is to ‘hold it in’ for a short while, when you feel the urge to pee.
  2. DON’T drink and sleep.
    Just as emptying your bladder at night time will help your chances of having a dry night, filling up your bladder before you go to bed will increase your chances having an accident. So, try not to drink anything after about 4pm if you can help it.
