Stop Stalling

Stop Stalling

Women do it all: Work, raise families, go to school, volunteer, and care for elderly parents. Today’s culture focuses on helping women “lean in,” raise their voices and change their lives. Women persist. Yet when it comes to overactive bladder (OAB), only 1 in 8 women who experience symptoms seek treatment.1  

 

Stop Stalling, a national campaign from Astellas Pharma US, Inc., aims to raise awareness of OAB. Approximately 46 million American adults age 40 and older experience OAB symptoms at least sometimes.2 OAB is often associated with feelings of embarrassment and anxiety, so many women with symptoms just cope, rather than talk to a healthcare professional because they are embarrassed to discuss frequent urination and leakage or think it can’t be treated.3

 

Stop Stalling helps to educate, empower and motivate women to recognize symptoms of OAB, equip them with information about the condition and motivate them to take action by talking to their healthcare providers.
