The Basics of OAB
Learn about OAB from Julie – who started experiencing OAB symptoms at age 43.
Causes of OAB
The symptoms can vary from one individual to the next, but it may include: Urinating 2 or more times per night and urinating more than 8 times per day. Having an urgent need to urinate with or without loss of bladder control.
OAB is more than just needing “to always go”
Without treatment, OAB symptoms are uncomfortable. It can be hard to get through the day without many visits to the bathroom. OAB can impact relationships. You may not want to do things you enjoy because you worry about finding a bathroom in time. It can disrupt your sleep and sex life. It can leave you tired and short-tempered, or leaks can lead to a rash or infections. The whole experience can make anyone feel hopeless and very unhappy.
The good news is that OAB can be controlled. There are treatments available to help.
