The creation of a passage between a pelvic organ and the vagina allows the contents of that organ to enter the vagina. In the case of a vesicovaginal fistula between the bladder and vagina, urine leaks into the vagina. There are other types of urine leakage described under Urinary Incontinence
, but the leakage associated with a vesicovaginal fistula is different as urine flows into the vagina constantly. Similarly, women with a rectovaginal fistula, between the rectum and vagina, have leakage of stool into the vagina.
