21 year olds and still wetting the bed, not sure what to do anymore

I'm 21 and female, and I've been wetting the bed since I was a kid and still haven't grown out of it. There's rarely a day I go without it, I might go without it 2 days out of a month but yeah it happens basically every night. The longest I recall ever gone without it was like 5 months, well not 5 months straight but I was in a college dorm and I didn't wet myself except for a few random nights and the only reason why I probably stopped is because I was stressed all the time and I didn't sleep all that much. I did wet the bed when I came home on the weekends.

Some of my history-I saw a doctor and she gave me a log to fill out of my drinks and she told me not to drink after 3 p.m. Followed her advice, still wet the bed. Don't know where that liquid's coming from if I'm not drinking after 3(well I am now, but yeah wasn't at that time). What was funny too, is that around that time I cheated and went out for a milkshake with my family and it was like 8 p.m and I didn't wet the bed. I saw a urologist, and first I took oxybutinin for about a month which didn't help at all and now I've been taking desmopressin for a couple months too and that's not helping either. The first couple nights I took it I didn't wet, but that was probably just a fluke. I'm at a loss of what to do. It's a lot of pee too, like I'm soaked to my socks. I have diaper rash now on the outside of my thighs, and that hurts. I haven't found a single thing that works. There's a few instances where I've been lucky to get up in the middle of the night, but yeah I'm already wet and sometimes I make it to the bathroom, sometimes I don't. Also, a lot of times I wake up in the morning and there's still pee in me and I wet myself even more. Anyone got any advice for me?
