In brief: If u r talking about

Overactive bladder (oab), the female/male ratio is about 17%/16%, respectively, in over 18 years old and 12.
2 million adults have urge incontinence (ui). One in five adults over age 40 are affected by oab or recurrent symptoms of urgency and frequency. An estimated 17 million community-dwelling adults in the United States have daily ui and 33 million suffer from the overlapping condition of oab.
