Bladder training (or retraining) teaches you how to better control your urination. It may help you better manage your overactive bladder. It teaches you how to resist or block feelings of urgency. Urgency is the sudden need to urinate. You may even be able to postpone urinating and stick to your own schedule. Bladder training involves teaching your bladder muscles to hold urine properly.
