Question: I have seen the commercials on TV for “overactive bladder.” I think I have that. It is so embarrassing to be running to the bathroom all the time! Can you help?

Answer: Overactive bladder is a sudden and emergent need to go to the bathroom. Typically the faster you hurry, the
harder it is to get there dry. There are simple exercises and strategies you can learn to regain control in just weeks. You
remain fully clothed at all times – no embarrassment! For more
