Grown man still wetting bed

I've had bladder problems since i was a young. I was a bed wetter as a child and i would sometimes wet myself out in public. my bladder control has gotten much better but still go quite frequently and have a hard time holding it in if i have alot of liquid. drinking alcohol has been a specific problem for me. I pee once for every beer i drink. im not an alcoholic by any means and even a night where i drink 3 or 4 beers i still run the risk of wetting the bed or not being able to hold my bladder for more than 5 min. it's not as bad with hard alcohol because there isn't as much liquid. i'm 22 years old and luckily i have an understanding girlfriend and friends but it's still embarassing, not to mention annoying, to be a grown man wetting his pants or his bed.

i had tests done when i was little but they couldnt come to any conclusion about what was wrong with me and i'm too embarrassed to ask my doctor about it. i wanna know what's wrong with me. i dont have pain when i pee and i dont have problems starting my stream. i've noticed from peeing in urinals, when i urinate that i dont go as much as other men.

i want to know what's wrong with me and if there is anything i can do to help it.

  • I have a boyfriend that constantly wets the bed. I get so annoyed because we have to keep changing the bedding and also have gone through a lot of mattresses. We asked a doctor but got no results. I am frustrated and concerned that it's affecting our relationship

  • I have found that doing Keigel exercises and situps help. Can men do Keigel exercises? I have never gotten a good answer from a doctor. When I am in shape (lots of situps) this doesn't happen as often to me. I am aware this is not a cure, and it might all be in my head, but for some reason it works for me! Good luck!

Try stopping & starting your pee flo when going to the bathroom. Do this numerous times & it will strengthen your urinary tract muscles. Thus being able to control the urge or frequency of peeing. this has worked wonders for me.
