Thread: My SO wets the bed due to medication side effects, I need some advice.

  1. #1

    Question My SO wets the bed due to medication side effects, I need some advice.

    Hello everyone, I just came across this forum and it looks like a very friendly place.

    I recently started a relationship with someone who wets the bed while sleeping due to medication side effects, and she's self conscious about it.

    She uses goodnites and since her family doesn't know about it, I keep her stash and just refill her whenever she needs more.


    What advice can you give me to help her be less self conscious about it? Are there any discreet alternatives?

    She also hates to be spending so much on them (goes through 1 or 2 daily), what free/cheap alternatives are there?

    Or just any advice in general.

    Thanks!

    Well, GoodNites are probably one of the cheaper diapers out there. You're probably not going to find anything much more affordable besides store brands. From what I hear - I've never worn them before - they're pretty discreet as it is so I don't see many more options there besides perhaps the GoodNites Tru-Fit, which are designed like underwear and hold a disposable pad.

    If she has health insurance, there may be a chance they might pay for diapers, but obviously this would require a prescription from her doctor, and don't expect any quality brands.

    She does have Tru-Fit but since they're kinda expensive she doesn't use them as much, insurance is out of the question since her family doesn't know about it and I doubt she'd want to make an insurance claim on them :/

    First, there could be other medication that might help with the autoimmune problems. But I think the point Jbrashaw90 was making is how could we as a community help by offering support and understanding. There are other products available, but more important than that is the fact that lots of people suffer from various levels of incontinence. It is nothing to be ashamed of.

    I would just urge that it's nothing to be embarrassed about.

    She can certainly come here for advice and help if she wants. While there are a number of people on here who wear diapers by choice, not all of us are that way. This site has been one of the more understanding communities I have found regarding needs like hers.

    With that said, I understand being self-conscious about needing protection, a lot of people don't like it. If she can get away with something like Goodnites, those are likely the cheapest alternative she will find out there, and only needing 1-2 per day means she isn't needing to rely on them for full bladder incontinence. I would not suggest going for a higher absorbency product as she really doesn't need it.

    One thing she can always do is to see if she can have a discussion in private with her doctor about the medication she is on and the side effect it is causing. If she can accept the side effect for the benefit it gives her, then maybe the doctor can say something to her family about it and explain her needs. If there is a different medication that she can try, maybe she can get away from the side effect.

    All in all, the best thing anyone can do is be understanding and caring. You are already providing a lot of this for her in that you keep her stash and refill it. It can be hard for her to understand when she feels like her body is betraying her by losing control like that, I know it took many years for me to come to terms with my issues. In the meantime, we're here to help if she wants.

    Two other brands I have tried at Wal-Mart are Tena for women and Always Discreet. The Always are a good price if you can find a coupon. The Tena are usually 10.87 for 18 if she wears s/m. I think Tena works better for bedwetting especially if she does not sleep on her side. I still wear GoodNites more even though Tena Works better for me because they are cuter but it depends on her needs.

    The best way I that I was able to coupe with it was by telling a few of my closest friends and wearing around people in public things like that its better to talk with people than keep it inside thats where we become self conscious sometimes but like everyone here says if she wants to talk with us she can
