You tell yourself it's just a leak, grab clean underwear and go on. It happens again and again until it feels normal to bring extra clothing everywhere you go. Overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms can sneak up on you over time. We want to remind you that leaks are never normal.

jpg What you eat can affect your bladder. (.jpg)

Do you notice OAB getting better or worse depending on what you ate? Traces of what you eat and drink end up in your urine and can impact OAB symptoms. Watermelon can be good for your bladder. Caffeine, not so much. Get the details and more from The National Association for Continence. https://bit.ly/36kXe0S
