No, it is not normal.  However, your 15 year old could have various medical or mental health problems or disorders that cause the need for absorbent products, but this deserves a comprehensive evaluation, beginning with his or her primary care provider.

Incontinence in children can have several causes.  I would encourage you to look up Janet Hulme.  She is a physical therapist who has written several books on incontinence and incontinence in children beyond potty training years.  This is certainly a specialty within the physical therapy profession and I know that Janet is a pioneer in this area.

We all know it is not "normal", nor is it normal that the 15 yo didn't seek treatment prior to diapers.
