Performing Pelvic Floor Exercises Correctly
Overactive bladder (OAB) affects close to 33 million Americans. It’s not a condition; it’s actually the name for a group of urinary symptoms. The most common symptom of OAB is a sudden, strong urge to urinate, often frequently throughout the day and night. Around 40% of women in the U.S. live with OAB, but many of them don’t talk to their doctors about treatment. It’s an embarrassing condition that some people think is just a normal part of aging, or an expected result of childbirth. It’s not. But it’s important to realize that OAB doesn’t have to be a part of your life—it can be treated!
