View Full Version : Very Embarassing but I have to ask
Last night I wet my bed. I have NEVER lost bladder control as an adult. I'm pretty sure the last time I wet the bed was when I was a toddler. I've always had great bladder control. I can hold it for hours. At night I always wake up in time to go to the bathroom and sometimes I can even go back to sleep even though I know I have to go but I'm too lazy to get up and I will hold it till morning and make it to the bathroom just fine. But last night I woke up having peed myself. I'm kind of freaking out right now. The only medications I'm taking right now is Progesterone to make me have a period and on certain days of my cycle I'm suppose to take Clomid. I'm supposed to take a pregnancy test before I start the Clomid.
Any thoughts on this? I don't have a doctor right now except for my gyno and she works with my mother. It would be so embarrassing to call either one of them about this.

This has happened more often to me in the last few years also. I don't know why either. I figure it just might be part of getting older, but I also am on progesterone cream. I can't imagine WHY that would cause it? Maybe it messes with the ADH (antidiuretic hormone, which keeps us from peeing at night). That would make the most sense.

You should probably see the Dr. Find a walk-in clinic if you have to.
My friend who is older than me (I'm 50) started having to get up in the night to use the toilet. She assumed this was a normal part of aging. She was told at the hospital that it is not!
Long story short. Nosebleed that wouldn't quit. Her adult son drove her to the hospital where she learned that high BP caused the bleed. Routine urine and blood tests diagnosed severe anemia and also a very bad bladder infection. She did not have the normal symptoms of a bladder infection such as urgency or burning upon urination. The Dr. told her that having to get up in the night should have been a tip-off to her.
I am a diabetic. I drink a lot of liquids. I hardly ever have to get up in the night to use the toilet. I just don't think it is normal to have to do that.
I don't know your age, but loss of bladder control can be one (of many - sigh!) symptoms of menopause or perimenopause.
I'm on bioidentical hormones (estradiol, progesterone and testosterone) and I know when this was an issue, my holistic MD increased my estradiol (estrogen) dosage.

First of all, I am a guy, don't take any hormones and amazingly I have never had any girl problems... :)
After I went raw for a while, I did wet the bed three times in one month! :( My wife was a bit upset about this (worried would be a better word) as in years of marriage this had never happened and then suddenly it was a weekly thing?
A call to the doc and he asked for a few test first (test here are usually done at a lab, not at the doc's office). I was clearly anemic! Some chelated Iron and for some reason some vit-d from the health food store cleared it right up!
Then we found that 15g of a leafy food from our neighbors garden would solve the problem and no more problems! I am sure my wife worries less with the bed now dry...
Reminds me of advice I heard my Texas friend give once...
"Be sure to take your spurs off before you jump into your water bed ... or the bed will pee you!" :D

Why don't you visit Dr. Oz websiste and ask the question? He has a place where you can do this and this is free.
So sorry about this, hope you find the answer you are looking for!
