Overactive Bladder Symptoms

If you're experiencing the symptoms of common bladder control problems, it's time to see a bladder incontinence specialist who may ask you to fill out a symptom tracker to get a better idea of your daily experience and help confirm your diagnosis.

Symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) include:

Urge incontinence

  • Urinating before you reach the bathroom
  • Experiencing frequent leaks
  • Using pads or protective garments

Urgency-frequency

  • Frequent, uncontrollable urge to go
  • Going more than 8 times a day
  • Feeling like your bladder is never empty

Symptoms of urinary retention* include:

  • Can't tell if your bladder is full
  • Holding increasingly large amounts of urine
  • Weak or dribbling stream
  • Needing to use a catheter

* Medtronic Bladder Control Therapies do not treat obstructive urinary retention.
