Vaginal fistula is an abnormal opening of the vagina which connects it with another organ such as urinary bladder, colon or rectum. This allows stool or urine to pass through vagina. Such disorder can develop as a result of an injury, surgery, infection or radiation treatment.
Several types of vaginal fistulas exist which include:
Vesicovaginal fistula (opening between vagina and urinary bladder)
Ureterovaginal fistula (opening between ureters and vagina)
Rectovaginal fistula (opening between rectum and vagina)
Urethrovaginal fistula (opening between urethra and vagina)
Colovaginal fistula (opening between colon and vagina)
Enterovaginal fistula (opening between small intestines and vagina).
Signs and symptoms of vaginal fistula include abnormal discharges of the vagina like feces, urine. There may be problems with sexual life also.
