Bed wetting in med teenage years. Can it be infection? Will she grow out of it?

Hi, I have a 15-year old daughter who sometimes wet the bed. It s not very often (once fortnightly or once a month) but I m getting worried. She just started bed wetting this year, after a couple of years went by without any accident. She refused to see a doctor saying that she ll grow out of it. There s no sign of infection though. What should I do?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your 15 years old daughter has problem of eneuresis once in a while.

Normally control over nocturnal urination is fully developed by the age of 8-9 years in females.

However this gets delayed in some girls .Do not worry it will get resolved as she grows up

As it is a sporadic issue she does not need any treatment.

She need proper counselling and assurance from you.

Ask her to develop a habit of emptying bladder before going to bed.
