About one in every 10 five-year-olds experience bed wetting. This is why
bed wetting in young children is an acknowledged and accepted condition,
similar to experiencing measles. That is, children develop immunity from
measles and they eventually outgrow bedwetting.

Bed wetting in older children, although less talked about, is also an
accepted condition. Parents even seek out the help of health
professionals to find solutions to stop or reduce the bedwetting. Among
teenagers, bedwetting is already embarrassing. Yet, there are recognized
remedies to address this condition of some unfortunate teenagers.

Among adults, bedwetting is an issue that has become taboo. Adult bed
wetters do everything so that their condition will not be known by any of
their friends. Invitations from friends asking them to be house guests
leave them in terror. And their bed wetting may be the major reason why
they never pursue more intimate relationships with their loved ones.

Unfortunately for people suffering adult bed wetting, there is very
literature available that dwell upon their enuresis problem. And many
adults who have this problem refuse to seek medical help. For those who
actively search for treatment, they run against a wall.

Almost all physicians, such as general practitioners and urologists, do
not know how to deal with adult bed wetting. Psychologists and
psychologists offer no answers. Even people who practice alternative
medicine, such as acupuncturists, hypnotherapists, and homeopaths, have
nothing in their sleeves to help a person overcome adult bed wetting.

Some adults who suffer bed wetting even undergo an experimental method,
called the Pavlovian method, which is just two-steps behind from
masochism. The psychologist Pavlov has nothing to do with this method,
except that it was based on his theory of classical conditioning.

This Pavlovian method entails the adult to place himself under an
extremely cold shower each time he accidentally voids his urine during
his sleep. The cold shower is a form of punishment. And theoretically, if
a person suffers, he will no longer wet his bed. Such method is a failure
simply because there is an underlying reason for adult bedwetting

Adult bed wetting is often triggered by a certain medical disorder. A
doctor should conduct tests, such as urinalysis, urine culture, and
neurological examination, to determine which medical problem has led to
adult bedwetting. Some of the identified problems are:

·   Diabetes
·   Cancer in the bladder
·   Infection in the urinary tract
·   Enlargement of the prostate gland
·   Presence of stones in the urinary tract
·   Defects in the nervous system, particularly the central nervous system

If the above medical problems are addressed or alleviated, the adult
bedwetting can be ultimately stopped. In the meantime, the adult may turn
to medications that will reduce the frequency of bed wetting.
