Overactive bladder (OAB) is a chronic medical condition that can cause frequent urination, urgency to urinate, and urgency-related incontinence. According to a 2021 research review, it affects up to 43% of women and 27% of men who are more than 40 years old. It can also affect younger people.

A bathroom kit or incontinence kit can come in handy when you’re making frequent trips to the restroom or managing accidents due to OAB. Consider bringing the kit when you’re traveling or spending time away from home.

Here are some items that may be useful to pack in the kit.

Packing everything you need to manage urinary urgency, urine leakage, and other potential symptoms of OAB can help you manage the condition while traveling or spending time away from home. This may help you feel more comfortable and confident.

It’s also important to talk with your doctor about potential treatments for OAB. Your treatment plan will depend on the underlying cause of the condition. Sometimes, they may recommend changes to your diet, medications, or other treatments.
