OAB Resource Center
OAB Resource Center
Overactive Bladder isn’t just one of the most common incontinence conditions; it’s one of the most common medical conditions of any type, which is why we created the Overactive Bladder Resource Center.
It’s designed to serve as an in-depth resource for patient education on OAB causes, symptoms and treatments, with a range of educational materials, tools and guides to help patients on their path towards drier days.
We encourage you to share these resources with your own patients, incorporate them into your interactions and distribute them as you see fit through email, social media postings and any other outreach efforts you may use.

MEDICATIONS AND INJECTIONS
Medical treatments for OAB are more effective than ever – here’s a sense of what your doctor may suggest for you.
If medications and injections don’t work for you, other minimally invasive therapies are available.
For conditions that aren’t responding well to other forms of treatment, surgery may be a good option.
THE NAFC OAB TREATMENT TRACKER
The NAFC OAB Treatment Tracker is designed to help you learn more about the options that are available for the treatment of your overactive bladder, including many you may not have heard of before.
Once you’ve completed your questionnaire, a free, personalized email will be sent directly to you. The information you receive will help you better manage your condition, and we encourage you to share them with your doctor for use in the diagnostic and treatment process.
