  Purpose

The investigators purpose is to perform a pilot study evaluating the efficacy in hypnotherapy in treating women with Overactive Bladder Symptoms (urinary urgency symptoms and urinary frequency). Approximately half the women in the study will receive "standard care" (performing a voiding diary, Pelvic Floor exercises, and timed voiding) and the other half will receive "standard care" and 3 hypnotherapy sessions. The investigators will compare the groups using a validated overactive bladder questionnaire and compare voiding diaries to evaluate urinary frequency at the end of the sessions/study completion.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Overactive Bladder Symptoms (Based on OABqSF) [ Time Frame: baseline and approximately 6-12 weeks after study initiation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Scale information; Score ranges for oab-qsf quality of life scores range from 13-78; 13=poor quality of life 78=good quality of life. We reported change scores, with larger negative numbers indicating greater improvement in quality of life scores.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Voiding Frequency Based on Voiding Diary [ Time Frame: baseline and 6-12 weeks after study initiation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in mean number of voids per 24 hours. Each participant recorded voiding frequency every 24 hours for 3 days at baseline and follow-up. A mean number of voids for every patient over 24 hours was calculated at baseline and follow-up.

  • Patient Global Impression of Improvement [ Time Frame: 6-12 weeks after study initiation (@ completion of intervention) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Outcome measure is only administered at follow-up and used following treatment in patients with urinary incontinence. Measure varies from 1 to 7 on a Likert scale. 1=very much better and 7=very much worse and 4=no change. Thus, lower numbers represent greater improvement.
