Bedwetting teen daughter?
azmama82 posted:
I need some advice on where to go next.

My daughter has been a bedwetter most her life. I was too so I didn't worry overmuch. When she hit 7, we attempted the alarm method. She slept through it. So we revisited it again when she said she was ready, at 10. Problem was the alarm went off if she sweat too, and she's a night-sweater. Tried a different alarm - the urine crystallizes on the sensor & goes off without warning.

Fast forward to 12 - she started her period, quit bedwetting.

Until she gets a cold or virus. If she's super tired...she wets.
Well, she had a bladder infection so she was urinating a lot...then she got a head cold the following week. So she did wet somewhat regularly.
It's a week later, infection & virus is gone - she's still wetting. It's like she fell into old habits or something. She was dry for TWO yrs!

So this issue is bigger than what we thought & I don't know what to do. Is there an alarm out there that works better than others? Should I consider a sleep study?

She's 14 and angry and embarassed. I feel very bad for her - I thought she'd grown out of it.

Any ideas on where to turn next?

Is it possible she still has a bladder infection or uti? I'm not doubting your saying the viruses are gone, but how was that confirmed? Was her urine cultured again after a course of antibiotics to confirm this? If not, that might be a starting place. If she still has any irritation it may trigger a bit of incontinence. Also, perhaps the antibiotics brought out a yeast infection that might cause irritation??? I don't know, mama, just trying to brainstorm with you. Good luck.
