The Gender Factor
Bedwetting is more common among males than females; approximately two-thirds of enuretics are males, while one-third are females. As the age progresses, the proportion changes and is gradually equal in adolescence. Among individuals ages seventeen and up, two-thirds of enuretics are females, while one-third are males.
Some of the possible explanations for this gender difference is that girls mature faster than boys in early ages, while boys close this gap in later ages. No explanation was found for the higher proportion of females in older ages (seventeen and up). It is possible that in those ages we might find more emotional factors that affect bedwetting in females compared with males.
