Do boys suffer from bedwetting more than girls?

Yes, it is more common for boys to experience bedwetting (also known as nocturnal enuresis) than girls. Studies have shown that bedwetting affects approximately 15-20% of 5-year-olds, 10% of 7-year-olds, and 5% of 10-year-olds. Among these children, boys are more likely to be affected than girls, with some studies suggesting that boys are twice as likely to experience bedwetting as girls.

The reasons for this gender difference are not entirely clear, but it may be related to factors such as differences in bladder capacity and hormone levels. However, it’s important to note that bedwetting can occur in both boys and girls, and it’s not a sign of laziness or bad behavior. If a child is struggling with bedwetting, it’s important to choose an appropriate treatment plan.
