Hi there!
Just passed by and i see this may help me. So as i am portuguese, my english may sound poor.

Last year i wet the bed and i was so embarresed cause i am 19yo and so this shouldn't happen. I started lookin better to when i need to go to the bathroom and i started notice like sometimes i have a realy urgent need to go to the bathroom and i feel like if i don't made to the bathroom things may complicate a bit. So that worries me. Years agor when i was going to school i was in such a hurry cause i need it to go to a bathroom and my friends made me laugh so hard that i just couldn't hold it anymore. I had some accidents in bed during age growin' but since las year or 2 years ago that i never had anymore accidents in bed but it worries me the fact that i need to rush to a bathroom sometimes. Cause it's realy hard to hold it.
Help me?

Diane K Newman, RN-C, MSN, ANP responded:
It sounds as though you are having some bladder urgency (urgent need to go to the bathroom). You are young to be having this problem but it may be caused by something simple like your diet. Read my tip on Specific Foods that May Worsen Incontinence for more information.

You also may be able to control it by practicing some techniques to lessen your urgency. I discuss this on my resource about Bladder Retraining .
