What is Overactive Bladder (OAB)?
Overactive bladder — which your doctor may refer to as “OAB” — is an umbrella term that includes the frequent and urgent need to empty your bladder. One of the most common symptoms of overactive bladder is a sudden urge to urinate, resulting in unintentional urine loss.
What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the inability to control when the bladder releases urine.
