The Journey Through Adolescence
The journey through adolescence brings a balance of enjoying great opportunity while handling big physical and social changes. For an estimated 60 000 Australian teenagers aged 13 to 18 years, dealing with bladder and bowel problems like urinary urgency, daytime urinary incontinence and constipation adds a significant challenge to their self-esteem and wellbeing.
