Assess Your OAB Symptoms
These tools give you several ways to get a handle on the level and impact of your OAB symptoms. You can then easily share your results with your health care provider.
Think You Have Overactive Bladder?
Print this simple list of questions and answer them. You can use your completed questionnaire to start the conversation with your health care provider about your symptoms. The questions will help you and your provider assess which OAB symptoms you have and how much they are bothering you. The better your health care provider understands the level and impact of your symptoms, the better he or she can help you manage them.
Print our Bladder Diary to record how much liquid (coffee, water, soda, etc.) you drink, how often you go to the bathroom, and when you have urine leakage. This will help your health care professional know when and why your symptoms occur.
The Bladder Pal is a paperless bladder diary for people whose electronic devices run Apple or Android apps. This free app lets you keep track of how much you drink, how often you go to the bathroom and any urine leakage. It also has a questionnaire called the AUA Symptom Score, which helps assess your urinary symptoms (especially those in men with prostate problems). To share your results with your health care professional, you can email them to yourself and print them out.
The Bladder Pal was developed by AUA Member, Dr. Ronald Yap, through the support of the LeBaron Foundation and the Concord Hospital Trust.
