What Exactly Is OAB?
OAB or overactive bladder usually presents itself as the feeling of having to go and go right away. When you cannot control the urge and leakage occurs, this is referred to as incontinence.
Typical symptoms of overactive bladder include:
- Urinating more than 8 times per day
- Urinating more than once at night (urinary frequency)
- Strong and sudden desire to urinate (urinary urgency)
Sound familiar? Do you:
- Stay close to bathrooms?
- Avoid fluids before bed?
- Monitor fluid intake
- Use pads or other similar products?
