Hi Welcome to Healthcare Magic

By the above condition, a clinical examination is needed to rule out any vesicovaginal fistula.. only in that condition there will be passage of urine through vagina.. as your state says that urine goes front of vagina it rules out the vesicovaginal fistula..

Hi I gave birth to my daughter 9 months ago. My periods have returned back to normal, but the problem is I have brown discharge that comes spontaneously. I have been checked for std, infections and even retained placental I even believe I may have a rectovaginal fistula due to me uncontrollably passing gas through through my vaginal and if I have loose stools it will leak through my vagina. I have even seen a colorectal specialist and still no answers. This has been going on for 7 months now. What could be wrong???

First off I have had an ileostomy so I have a stoma through ulcerative colitis, i had my rectum removed last jan. since then i have had a rectovaginal fistula which has been leaking odourless discharge every day. after many minor failed surgeries to clean the fistula out i had surgery last monday to stitch one end of the fistula in the hope it would close up on its own as it only seems to be very small. my problem is now after 10 days the smell is atrocious, its slightly uncomfortable but no major pain but i cant hack the smell. ive heard that fistulas do tend to smell but mine never has done. i was wondering if this is normal and if u think it is likely to heal up this time round.im only 34 and live with a partner and 2 children but i cant bear the thought of living with this smell for long.please advise if u can.thank you

I have been diagnosed with diverticulities but also have a rectovaginal fistula which at first was horrendous with faeces coming through the vagina this was back in October, since then I have had CT scan, flexispiroscopy to confirm diveeticulitis after being extremely ill and large weight lost. Now the weight it back on but I still have a very minor discharge from the vagina does this mean the fistula is gradually closing as I do not want an operation is I can avoid it
