Millions Live with Overactive Bladder Symptoms
Share Your Voice and Raise Awareness!
Do you constantly have to urinate and worry you won't make it to the bathroom on time? Do you wake up often in the middle of the night to visit the bathroom? Do you feel sudden urges to go that make you fear you will leak urine if you don't get to the bathroom immediately?
Sound familiar? If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may have Overactive Bladder, also known as OAB. Millions of American men and women live with OAB symptoms without getting the help they need. Don't wait. Talk to your health care professional today.
The Urology Care Foundation has developed a national public education campaign called It's Time to Talk About OAB. The campaign includes resources online and in print to get people talking openly about Overactive Bladder. We hope the campaign's message will help the millions of people in the United States who live with Overactive Bladder. We want to increase awareness of OAB and reduce any stigma people feel about their symptoms. We hope the information and resources will encourage more people to talk openly with their health care professionals about their OAB symptoms.
