Hi.

I apologize for the taboo topic.

I am looking for a word meaning unable to urinate and a word meaning unable to control urination, the latter is mostly used for children at the time of their sleep.

I have found the word paruresis which means unable to urinate in the presence of others but it is different with the one I was looking for.

I don't know about the existence of these words I am looking for.

there are such words in my native language so I thought there might be equivalances in English too.

thanks for your time and help in advance

Unable to control urination or fecal discharge = 'incontinent' (the noun is 'incontinence'), but I don't know a word for inability to urinate. The condition of being unable to defecate is 'constipation'.
Thanks for your help and words.

By the way, you used the word fecal which is the adjective of faeces.

Is faeces synonym of poop and poo?

Once again sorry for talking about these mean words.

thanks
Yes.
A child (or, I suppose, anyone) who urinates at night without awakening in time to get to a toilet is said to "wet the bed."

Hi,
hrsaneia word meaning unable to control urination, the latter is mostly used for children at the time of their sleep.
Medically, There are two words for children who can not control urination, and the adults who can not control urination during night hours. The words are ;
For children : bedwetting.
For Adults : Nocturia.

Unable to urinate : Acute Urinary retention

Thanks Khoff. I didn't know wet can be used as a verb too.

It was interesting to learn that wet yourself /your bed/your clothes means to pass water from your body by accident.
