Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects the large intestine. Having this chronic condition can cause abdominal pain and changes in how often you need to go to the loo for number two. These are just some of the common symptoms.

If you’re living with UC, learning about the condition can help you feel prepared and in control. We’ve developed a pop quiz to assess how well you know your UC.
