19 and wet the bed

I'm 19 and female and I'm still wetting the bed. Been doing it since I was a kid and I can't figure out what's causing it. I wet the bed every night except a lucky 1 or 2 days a week. Last time I talked with a therapist about it, he was like, "I think you're just a deep sleeper!", but I'm not that deep a sleeper in most circumstances so that surprised me. He suggested an alarm(just a regular phone alarm), and while it did wake me up and I went to the bathroom, I had to pee again and I still wet myself. Actually, I do get up to pee a lot on my own, but I'll have already peed myself before hand, or I might start getting up to go but I can't hold it. I've wondered if drinks were affecting it, but they don't seem to be? I can drink a glass of soda before bed and have a lucky night, or I could stop drinking a few hours before bed and pee myself. I say I pee about 2-3 times a night(either in bed or in the bathroom). A couple of weeks ago I had one where it was 6! Does anyone have any tips for me? I don't really have any continence issues in the day, and my parents didn't haven't this problem or anything.

Hi StrawberryLatte,

Sounds like you are having a tough time with this issue; It must be understandably very worrying for you.

Although unfortunately we can not give you any specific medical advice regarding your incontinence issues. We would though suggest that you get this checked out with your GP in order to find out what is going on, solve the problem and put your mind at ease.

Previous clinics have discussed similar issues last year here; ... 64&t=28633 which you may want to check out, but the expert advice was to go get further testing (as you will see from the link above).

Hope this helps,
