Frequently Asked Questions

What is overactive bladder (OAB)?

OAB is a medical condition involving urine storage in the body. OAB can happen when nerve signals between your bladder and brain tell your bladder to empty even when it isn't full. This may cause your bladder muscles to contract to pass urine before they should. These contractions cause the sudden, strong urgency to urinate or cause leakage.
