Does rectovaginal fistula affect chances of pregnancy?

I have a rectovaginal fistula as a result of vaginal childbirth. I had it surgically repaired 7 months after childbirth but the surgery was not successful. My discomfort is minimal and I have had no infections in 2 years while dealing with this. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the last year and I was curious if the fistula may have something to do with our inability to conceive.

Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion fistula might not interfere with conception.Dont worry.But normal vaginal delivery might not be a option for you.
