04 Nov What are the signs of an overactive bladder?
Do you find yourself going to the bathroom frequently throughout the day? Do you wake up several times a night to urinate? Do you barely make it to the toilet when you rise out of bed, pull into the driveway, during a long car trip, finish a walk around the neighborhood or standing up from a movie? Do you know where every single restroom is located when you are out of your home? Have bathrooms closures during COVID-19 made you that more nervous about a potential accident? This may be a sign that you have an overactive bladder (OAB). OAB is a common condition that affects both men and women, affecting about 1 in 3 people in the United States over the age of 40*. Learn more about OAB and treatment options available to help you regain control of your bladder.
