There are some practical things you can do to help you feel less worried about your bladder problem. Here are some tips from other young people with daytime wetting and urgency: 

Plan your toilet visits 

Clock iconPlanning when you will go to the toilet and which toilets to use can help you feel more in control. Find out if there are disabled toilets you can use, these have more space and privacy. URApp has reminders you can set to help you stick to your plan. 

Needing the toilet during lessons

Find out if your school provides toilet passes or medical cards. These passes allow you to go to the toilet whenever you need to, without having to ask the teacher or explain. 


Accidents at school

Keep an emergency bag at school with spare underwear, pads, wet wipes, plastic bags for wet underwear or pads, and spare trousers or a skirt in case you have a wetting accident. 

Going on a school trip or staying overnight at someone’s house? You can find more advice on nights away from home on the ERIC website.
