09 Oct UGSA Overactive Bladder Information Sheet
Overactive bladder (OAB) refers to a combination of the following.
- Urgency (a strong, sudden desire to pass urine)
- Frequency (going to the toilet very often)
- Nocturia (getting up more than once overnight to pass urine).
Women with OAB can experience leakage of urine associated with the above symptoms. It is important to realise that OAB is a life-long condition. Unfortunately, there is no miracle cure for OAB. Treatment is aimed at controlling your symptoms so you can take part in all your work and leisure activities despite your bladder problems.
