Enuresis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

There is no way to prevent enuresis caused by problems with development or anatomy. Parenting problems can be addressed with family therapy. It's important to start toilet training only when the child is ready. When toilet training does begin, there should not be pressure on or criticism of the child. Helping children prepare for stressful events can help prevent enuretic episodes in response to stress.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

If the enuresis is not treated, it may cause emotional and developmental problems for the child.

What are the risks to others?

Enuresis is not contagious and poses no risk to others.
