Overactive Bladder (OAB)
• Do you have to go the bathroom 8 times or more every day?
• Does the urge to go leave you hardly any time to react?
• Do you fear those little “accidents”?
• Does your bladder seem to dictate your schedule and your choice of activities?

The symptoms of overactive bladder occur when the muscles of the bladder involuntarily contract. These contractions create a sudden and unstoppable need to urinate (urinary urgency), even though the bladder may only contain a small amount of urine.
Overactive bladder is especially common in older adults, and tends to affect women more than men. Research estimates that approximately 8% of the population suffers from Overactive Bladder
Symptoms of OAB may include the following:
|⚫ Loss of urine without meaning to urinate||⚫ Feel strong sudden urges to urinate|
|⚫ Frequent urination, usually eight or more times in a day||⚫ Wake in the middle of the night to urinate|
