Bladder control problems affect tens of millions of people every day. If you’re one of them, you should speak up.
TO LESS WORRY
Overactive bladder (OAB) is a treatable condition. It’s not a normal part of aging. And you shouldn’t have to deal with it on your own.
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
· Going more than 8 times a day
· Avoiding social events
· Using pads to control leaks
1 IN 6 ADULTS
People with undiagnosed
OAB reported ⁵ :
· 54% loss of confidence
· 49% loss of self-esteem
· 45% loss of intimacy
Just say: “I think I might have OAB” and let your doctor take it from there.
