After studying more than 1000 Turkish women, the research says that the reason between bedwetting as a child may be the same for exhibiting lack of control in controlling urine as an adult. The researchers feel that these women may suffer from some faulty neural pathway that connects the bladder and the brain, giving them wrong signals that are beyond their control. On the other hand, another possible reason could be developmental defect of the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments that controls the bladder.

Researchers feel that being aware of the association between childhood bedwetting and adult urinary incontinence may be able to make the medical practitioners and patients both aware of the risk factors that can lead to urinary incontinence or urinary incontinence from stress.

Urinary incontinence or the inability to control bladder discharge is a problem that 10% to 30% of the women in the age group of 15 to 64 suffer from, most of the time they never approach a medical practitioner. And yet this condition is very much curable with several treatment options available today.

I would love to meet someone with this problem I'm living with. If you would like to meet me and are female, and have incontinence, and hopefully diapered like me, come on over to 56, Lowther Road, Charminster, Bournemouth, Dorset, Uk. we can chat or go for coffee, or what ever you want as long as we agree that sex is out of the picture, and that includes anything of a sexual nature too, I would just like to meet someone, I'm 22 and autistic, depressed and epileptic, I have only ever been in one relationship and that was 7 years ago, I'm rubbish at maths but I am very geeky on computers, science, tech and I'm clueless about relationships and friendships which is why my friend is my teddy bear and tiger who you will meet if your interested, yes I'v got a lot of emotional issues and psychological issues, I think I have gone over the character limit barrier. Possibly not, its asking me to check before final submission lol. brb.
