Besides increased urination, patients with overactive bladder may experience sudden strong urges to urinate, as well as unintentional urine leakage following this sensation. Severe overactive bladder may also cause urinary incontinence.
Luckily for today's overactive bladder patients, standard treatment for this condition involves minimally invasive care. One popular first-line, no-complication treatment is Kegel exercises. Ms. Borohov may teach you how to do Kegels using biofeedback techniques. While not completely free from side effects, some medications may also address your needs.
