Are Health Issues Getting In Your Way?

This blog post is sponsored by MSD Consumer Care, Inc., the makers of Oxytrol® For Women.

According to a MORE magazine reader panel of 1,857 women 50 and over, 97% of women say that in a perfect world, they would reinvent themselves in the near future.

Are you one of them?

If you are, make sure health issues aren’t stopping you. Overactive bladder, for instance, affects 20 million women in the U.S., and may also affect a woman’s ability to open a new door in her life.

OAB is characterized by a number of symptoms that can be physically burdensome and emotionally draining, including a strong urge to urinate right away and the need to urinate more often than usual (eight or more times a day), with or without leakage.

“Overactive bladder can impact various aspects of a woman’s life, such as travel, work productivity, emotional and physical well-being as well as family relationships and social activities,” said Roshini Raj, M.D., women’s health expert and spokesperson for the makers of Oxytrol® For Women. “Despite these interruptions, OAB sufferers don’t have to let the condition affect their ability to reinvent themselves—there are treatment options for OAB and experts and resources available to fuel your reinvention.”

Despite the fact that OAB is a treatable medical condition, more than 80 percent of women with the condition do not seek help. But OAB symptoms can be managed with the first and only over-the-counter treatment called Oxytrol ® For Women. It’s a patch that can be discreetly applied, every four days, to the abdomen, hip, or buttock to help relax overactive bladder muscles and prevent frequent bathroom visits.

To help all women—with or without OAB—embrace the idea of pursuing their own reinventions, MSD Consumer Care, Inc., along with MORE magazine, have launched the “Open A New Door” program. The campaign aims to inspire women to pursue their passions, and achieve their goals, in their careers, education, communities, travel, and personal wellness.

What’s more, MSD Consumer Care, Inc., and MORE are awarding one lucky woman $10,000 to help realize her reinvention goals in the areas of professional development, volunteerism or travel, in addition to a personal coaching session to help spark her journey.
