Watch your weight to make OAB less likely to occur; being in the top third of body mass index range increases your risk. You can also take these steps to eliminate or prevent OAB:
Most likely it’s overactive bladder (OAB). It occurs when the muscles of the bladder involuntarily contract, making the urge to urinate more frequent than normal. There’s a dry and wet version: If you can make it to the bathroom in time, that’s dry (or stress incontinence); if you have any leakage, that’s wet (or urge incontinence).
- Do Kegel exercises, which, because of their neighborliness, are good for both urination and intimacy!
- Limit your fluid intake before bedtime
- Go to the bathroom twice before bedtime
- Avoid caffeine, alcohol, citrus juices, and carbonated beverages
- Avoid spicy and acidic foods
