I’m incredibly embarrassed writing this but for the past couple months I have been wetting the bed. It’s got to the point where I’ve had to replace my mattress. I really don’t know what to do as I’m only 23 and feel so embarrassed at the thought of going to the doctors. I’ve tried using some sanitary towels but they don’t hold much and I still end up wet in the morning. Please help x
You really should go and see your doctor as it could be a UTI which can be easily treated. In the meantime you need to sort out some protection for your mattress and possibly think about wearing protection yourself. Waterproof mattress covers are easy to find online as are incontinence products. You can also get washable bed pads to sleep on. I have one and it is excellent. You might find that the pull up type of incontinence pants work for you. It all depends on the extent of your bed wetting. I have been living with this issue for over 30 years following a spinal injury aged 26 (though I did wet the bed as a younger child and as a teenager). My wetting is such that I wear The TENA Slip Maxi all-in-one adult nappies with a waterproof backing and taped sides. You can these and other brands online too and delivery is always discreet. I actually get mine free of charge on the NHS. I hope this helps. You are certainly not alone in dealing with this but I would urge you to see you doctor or maybe the local Continence Nurse Specialist. Good luck.
