6,042 members with Overactive Bladder
Overactive bladder is also known as OAB. OAB is a condition where the bladder does not work properly and squeezes urine out at the wrong time. The sudden urge to urinate may be difficult to stop, and overactive bladder may lead to the involuntary loss of urine (incontinence). You may have OAB if you have two or more of these symptoms: 1) You urinate eight or more times a day or two or more times at night, 2) You have the sudden, strong need to urinate immediately, or 3) You leak urine after a sudden, strong urge to urinate. People who suffer from this OAB often feel embarrassed and may have symptoms a long time before seeking medical advice. In addition to medicines, there are a variety of behavioral treatments to help relieve OAB symptoms. Some behavioral treatments options that may be recommended by your doctor may include: pelvic floor exercises, maintaining a healthy weight, monitoring how much fluid you drink, scheduled toilet trips, and bladder training.
