About This Condition
Most people feel uncomfortable discussing bladder control problems with their friends, family and doctor. But if you suffer from any of the symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB), you’re not alone. Millions of people world wide deal with OAB,1 defined as urgency frequency and urge incontinence. That's why we used our expertise in neuromodulation to develop an innovative bladder control treatment.
Having an overactive bladder prevents you from controlling when and how much you urinate. You may experience unexpected small or large leaks, or use the bathroom very frequently.
There are different types of overactive bladder:
Overactive bladder (OAB) is not a natural part of aging. Pregnancy and childbirth, obesity, weak pelvic muscles, diabetes, bladder cancer or stones, and neurological disorders can contribute to OAB. Additionally, certain medications, high calcium levels, constipation, or inactivity can put you at risk.
Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and how they affect your daily life. Your doctor will make a diagnosis based on your symptoms.
