Signs It's Time to Start Treating Overactive Bladder
Overactive bladder (OAB) is characterized by spasms in the bladder, and a sudden and frequent urge to urinate. In the patients I see, It’s extremely common. In fact, about 1 in 3 women experience it, along with 16% of men.
However, many people do not seek treatment. And honestly, I’m not sure why that’s the case. Perhaps they’re embarrassed about it, or maybe they think an overactive bladder is a normal part of aging and that nothing can be done about it. I want to be clear that it is not a normal part of aging, and that treatment is available.
