Overactive Bladder: recognising the symptoms & available treatment options

Overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) is a common condition and can affect both men and women. Between 10 and 20% of people suffer from it at some stage in their lives. This syndrome is characterised by the presence of urinary symptoms that include:

  • The sudden need to urinate and having trouble postponing it, also called urgency, that can be followed by an involuntary loss of urine
  • The need to urinate more often than usual, called increased daytime frequency
  • The need to wake up at night to urinate, also called nocturia

OAB is treatable in various ways.  View our video on OAB here.  Find out more OAB and treatment options via the EAU Patient Information website: www.patients.uroweb.org
