Follow these lifestyle tips to manage symptoms and take an assessment to see if you could have OAB

  • Stay hydrated
    A total of 6 to 8 glasses of water is still recommended throughout the day
  • Keep moving
    Strength training, aerobic exercise, balance, and flexibility are beneficial for overall health. Pelvic floor exercises can help decrease leakage episodes
  • Lose excess weight
    Losing weight can help reduce leakage episodes. In some cases, women who lost 10% of their body weight reduced their leakage by half
  • Stop smoking
    Coughing causes downward pressure on the bladder, which can lead to leakage. Just another great reason to quit smoking
