Our goal at the Yellow Spot clinic is to help your child or adolescent with their urinary incontinence whether it be daytime wee accidents, wee accidents when laughing (“giggle incontinence”) or bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis).

We specialise in:

Daytime wee accidents

There are many reasons why children and adolescents wet their pants during the day. At the Yellow Spot Clinic we have a systemic approach to assessing the individual problem to ensure appropriate diagnosis which then allows a stepwise approach to treatment.

Bedwetting

Bed wetting or nocturnal enuresis is often due to deep sleep, more urine being made at night than the bladder can hold onto and nocturnal urinary urgency. There is often a genetic predisposition meaning another family member (eg sibling, parent, cousin etc) has had a similar problem. Psychological factors can also contribute.

It is so common that about 10% of 5yr olds wet the bed frequently – that is at least 2 kids in every kindergarten class. There is a natural resolution in some children as they get older but at aged 10yr, 5% still wet the bed – in year 5 at least one child in each class.

At the Yellow Spot clinic an systematic approach is taken with each individual child to accurately assess the contributing factors and provide a stepwise management strategy.
