​What Are The Treatment Options For An Overactive Bladder?

  • Medication which may be prescribed by your doctor to help relax the bladder and relieve the sensation of urgency. Estrogen may be inserted vaginally if you are menopausal.
  • Behavioural Therapy which comprises a Bladder Retraining Program where you are taught to empty the bladder at regular intervals. In addition, distraction relaxation and / or perineal pressure techniques may be incorporated to help you overcome the sense of urgency.
  • Pelvic Floor Exercises are designed to strengthen the sphincter muscles thereby reducing incontinence episodes and severity.
  • Electrical Stimulation reduces the contraction of the bladder muscles and improves the bladder capacity for urine storage.
