I asked her if she could wear nappies and she did but now she is even worse now and the doctor said she has no medical problem what do you think ?

It is very unusual for a teenager girl to suffer from daytime incontinence. Daytime incontinence is either the result of an underlying medical or physical condition or has a psychological cause. I would strongly recommend that you pursue this further. It is important the you first rule out all medical conditions, once you get the all clear I would ask to be referred to a clinical psychologist who will be able to work with your daughter to help determine why this is occurring. Do not try and manage this on your own, the more support you and your daughter receive throughout this process the more positive the outcome. Regards, Dr Cathrine
