Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

5 year old son elimination habits



My son is 5 and has been completely potty trained for about three years. Recently he has produced bm on the floor in his bedroom and has urinated in his closet and in his bedroom. My husband/his father has bipolor. What would you suggest my next step be?


I would check with the pediatrician, and he or she may suggest referral to a pediatric urologist or possibly another health care specialist.
