what to do

How do you deal with wet sheets during menopause?

If I get up to change the sheets, I can't get back to sleep. On the other hand, I can't sleep on wet sheets.

I am going through the same thing and what helps me is running a fan on high on me. Keeps me from gettiing hot. Also, using silk sheets which keep me cool because the sheet is thin and not thick. Also, keep all other blankets off you and a good size ice pack next to you helps.

The best thing you can do if you are constantly wetting your bed is to start wearing adult disposable pads or undergarments such as Depend, Attends, or a generic store brand. It will allow you to get a restful nights sleep without waking you up due to wetting the bed. My mom has used them comfortably for years.

When you change your wet sheets, you should try reading a book to make you tired or drink warm milk and that might help you go back to sleep.

The best way is to try to keep the sheets from getting wet, choose your sheet fabric wisely. You want as much cotton in your sheets as possible as artifical fibers such as polyester will make it worse. The sheets that feel like t-shirts are wonderful. Also a fan really helps dry the sweat before your sheets are soaking.
