As if teenage girls didn’t have enough things to deal with. There’s also occasional bedwetting. Your body is still developing and sometimes it has a really inconvenient way of showing us that not everything runs like clockwork just yet.
Even though it’s pretty common, we know it’s not ideal. You want to go on an overnight school trip, camping with friends, or just to a sleepover on the weekend, and you’re worried about wetting the bed. The good news is that you’re not alone and we can help you to coast through this phase.
WHAT TO DO ABOUT BEDWETTING
BEDWETTING TIPS FOR TEENAGE GIRLS
DO train your muscle.
Maybe it’s time to show your bladder who’s boss.
Your bladder is a hollow, muscular, and very elastic organ. That means that like any muscle, it benefits from a bit of a workout, now and then. The best way to stretch and build the muscles of your bladder is to ‘hold it in’ for a short while, when you feel the urge to pee.
DON’T drink and sleep.
Just as emptying your bladder at night time will help your chances of having a dry night, filling up your bladder before you go to bed will increase your chances having an accident. So, try not to drink anything after about 4pm if you can help it.
