Overactive Bladder

Cheryl's Story

Cheryl was in her mid-fifties when she noticed she had to go the bathroom more often. Her family doctor told her this just happens when women get older. "You'll get used to it," he said. But Cheryl didn't buy it. "I'm only in my fifties, but I was too embarrassed to talk to anybody about my problem."


Jayne's Story

"I tried many medications, but nothing helped. I carried pads and a change of clothes wherever I went. Eventually I couldn't go out."
