Why does steam come out of vagina during menstruation?

I have been having heavy irregular periods for the past 4 months. 1 week bleeding then maybe 2 weeks off if I m lucky. I have a long history of endometriosis which includes 5 surgeries. I had my last pap 18 months ago which concluded in abnormalities cells then a uterine biopsy. No cancer. Now i have had smoke comign out of my vagina on 3 different occasions the past 24 hours. I have an ob appointment Monday. Should I go to the hospital? I ve been bleeding heavily for 4 days

Yes, I think you have developed a fistula which can lead to such symptoms and it has to be diagnosed by using dyes and if it's there then surgical closure should be done.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
