Bedwetting can best be defined as the uncontrollable urinating while sleeping. When bedwetters are awake, no problems occurs. This in contrast with incontinence patients which wet themselves during both day and night. Although it is not well-known, bedwetting occurs as well frequently during adulthood. Studies have proven that about 1% of adults keep bedwetting. The problem occurs more with men than women. Some of them wet their bed every night and others just now and then.
Bedwetting is not a disease, it is an awkward problem.
For those persons who are troubled with bedwetting, it is very troublesome and far-reaching. The social consequences can be staggering. They feel ashamed and are not open about it. Out of fear of wetting the bed at other places, they do not stay over for the night at friends and family places. Do not dare going on a school camp or having problems entering a relationship.
