Wetting the bed at night is surprisingly common, although very few people talk about it. It affects about one person in throughout adult life but you probably thought that you were the only one. Some people wet the bed all their lives. Others become dry during childhood, but later start wetting the bed again. Bedwetting is also known as "nocturnal enuresis". It affects different people in different ways.
Many people have experienced waking up from a dream of going to the bathroom to find that they've either gone, are going, or really have to go. For most, this is a one-time occurrence and it's nothing to worry about. If this is a repeated problem, however, you should seek help.
About two out of every young adults wet the bed at night also called nocturnal enuresis. It can be a problem for both young men and women, with most young adults who wet the bed having done so since they were a child. While some may have had help as a child, many young people may never have had help with this problem. Some young people with night-time wetting may also have day-time bladder problems, such as passing urine more often and more urgently than normal, and urine leaks as they hurry to the toilet also called overactive bladder. Bed-wetting can make everyday life more difficult.
