Why do women get overactive bladder more than men?

In brief: Weak sphincter

Sometimes the overactive bladder is caused when a drop of urine gets in the urethra and triggers a contraction.
Since women are more likely to have stress incontinence they are more likely to have that drop of urine get in their urethra and trigger oab symptoms. For more see http://peedoc.Com/female-urology or on twitter @thepeedoc.
