What is Overactive Bladder

Overactive bladder is characterized by a limited inability to control urges to urinate.

It is characterized by intense and imminent need to urinate, without necessarily having the bladder reached its maximum capacity and by an increased frequency of urinating day or night. It can cause emergency urinary leakage.

It then results in involuntary contractions of the bladder, regardless of its level of filling.

Overactive bladder gets worse with age. It is more common in women.
