What Are the Symptoms of Overactive Bladder?

Overactive bladder—sometimes called OAB—is a common condition that causes the overwhelming need to urinate and the inability to stop the flow of urine. The intrusive condition can be controlled with the help of your urologist, so see your doctor if it happens to you.

There are four symptoms of OAB. One is urgency, or the need to urinate right away with little ability to control it. Frequency is another symptom. People with OAB urinate more than eight times per day, rather than the typical four to six times per day. Urge incontinence, the loss of urinary control after experiencing an urge, is also a symptom, as is nocturia, or waking two or more times per night to urinate.
