In cases where night time accidents are occurring more frequently or for a longer period of time than is manageable, solutions may include:
It’s important for you to remember that there is nothing wrong with you. This is something that lots of teenagers go through. If you feel as though you need help to deal with it, there is no shame in that. There are plenty of resources available.
Your school counsellor. A school counsellor will have some strategies for coping with a bedwetting phase and can help out if you’re nervous about things like sleepovers or school camps.
Your family doctor. GPs see people with enuresis all the time. They have a lot of information and advice on it, and if you are concerned they can run tests and recommend bedwetting products or medication.
