What is Overactive Bladder?
Constantly having to urinate might have you asking yourself “what is an overactive bladder” and searching for ways to help reduce these symptoms. Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition that is characterized by sudden, involuntary contraction of the muscle in the wall of the urinary bladder. This results in a sudden, compelling need to urinate that is difficult to suppress (urinary urgency), even though the bladder may only contain a small amount of urine.
