Peri-menopausal & bed wetting

Posted , 6 users are following.


I've been peri-menopausal for just over 1.5 years, in that time I've had bladder weakness; rushing to the loo, not being able to hold my pee for long etc. Over the last couple of months on two occassions, I have dreamt I was peeing and woke up and had started to wet the bed. I'm thinking all sorts. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hi Zoey, I am always going to the bathroom too! porta potties used to gross me out, but, I am now quite fond of them! It is worse if I have a migraine or while ovulating. I was told by my obgyn that my bladder is drooping a little...awesome...I am 41. I am on a med to control my migraines now and it helps me sleep through the night, I really do not get up through the night anymore to pee. I think it has calmed my nervous bladder down.

    You must have been in a deep sleep! I peed myself once several years ago while dreaming of sitting on the toilet...I was a kid so no perimenopause to blame on that one! Not recently though...Anything is possible though...I am waiting for the day I wake up with a third eye or something!

    I have to stop liquids or I'm up at night going to the bathroom. sometimes start going before sitting down. I find myself looking for restrooms in every place I go to these days. but I have to drink a lot of water to avoid bladder infections because I tend to be dehydrated since peri started.

    have you tried massaging the middle of your palm or pressing it very hard?

    I had a friend who went to see her homopath, it worked 😊
