I had a really bad teacher who refused me bathroom privileges for the full year as a punishment. So I would be holding it in almost every day for about 3-8 hours. I have always had a small balder but I never wet the bed or had any sort of accidents or bladder problem. This went on for about 8 months. I am now fifteen and in a different school. Its been about and 7 months since I was able to use the bathroom freely. However, I am now experiencing bedwetting about 2 times a week. I am on no medication and have no other health problems. Also 3 out of my 5 cousins wet the bed. And I am a heavy sleeper but as I said I never had such a problem before it just started about a month ago and it is really embarrassing because I am 15 years old.
Bedwetting with onset at your age first makes me think of a urinary tract infection. Then I would look at the drugs that you may be using and your sleep habits, evening fluid intake (probably should stay away from caffeine, alcohol ). Your family doctor may feel comfortable dealing with the initial part of your evaluation, but you will need to see a urologist if further considerations are required.
I do not think that your being forced to delay urinating has contributed or caused this problem.
