About Your Condition
Overactive bladder—which your doctor may refer to as “OAB”—is an umbrella term that includes the frequent and urgent need to empty your bladder. One of the most common symptoms of overactive bladder is a sudden urge to urinate, resulting in unintentional urine loss.
Urinary incontinence is the inability to control when the bladder releases urine.
Urinary retention is the inability to empty the bladder. People with this condition are unable to urinate or they feel frequent urges but only urinate small amounts.
Fecal incontinence, or accidental bowel leakage, is a condition where people get sudden urges to pass stool and experience leakage of stool before they make it to the restroom.
