OWINGS MILLS, Md., Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- November is Bladder Health Awareness Month and Lisa Hawes, M.D., female urology specialist at Chesapeake Urology is speaking out about and bringing awareness to an often taboo subject - overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary incontinence in women.
"Overactive bladder is a private, yet all too common problem for many women living with its life altering symptoms," says Dr. Hawes. "Many women feel embarrassed about this condition and hide from it rather than seeking out the help they need to control their OAB symptoms. It's time for women to know that OAB doesn't have to control their lives; there are a number of treatments that can restore their quality of living."
