In the United States, at least 13 million people have problems holding
urine until they can get to a toilet. This loss of urinary control is
called "urinary incontinence", "bed-wetting" or just "incontinence."
Although it affects
many young people, it usually disappears naturally over time, which
suggests that bedwetting, for some people, may be a normal part of
growing up. No matter when it happens or how often it happens,
bedwetting causes great distress. It may get in the way of a good
night's sleep and is embarrassing when it happens during the day. That's
why it is important to understand that occasional incontinence is a normal
part of growing up and that treatment is available for most children who
have difficulty controlling their bladders.
