Hey my name is George I am 26 years old I have been wearing drynites for ages and I can’t seem to get out of them and I don’t really care if people know about me I use to be scared but not anymore. So my question is how do I get out of them and how do I tell trusted friends about me?

Dear George, In a very small percentage of cases people do continue to wet the bed at night right through to their adult years. It can be incredibly frustrating when it seems like you’ve tried it all yet met with little success! The best forms of treatment are conditioning alarms – these do not always work at first and may take up to 6 months of constant use. It is not unusual for individuals to experience one or two relapses, when this occurs you need to reintroduce and repeat the process. Success improves with the level of support your receive so do not try and manage this on your own - connecting with a good continence specialist is strongly advised. All the best, Dr Cathrine
