Urine leakage: A vesicovaginal fistula is a direct connection between the urinary bladder and the vagina. This would allow urine to leak constantly into the vagina. This type fistula would significantly increase the risk for urinary bladder infections.

Leakage: A vesicovaginal fistula is a connection between the bladder and the vagina, so some leakage of urine through the vagina would be expected. There are tests that can be done to determine if this exists. Most commonly these develop after gynecologic or bladder surgeries in women.

Connection: A vesicovaginal fistula is an abnormal connection between the bladder and vagina. Symptoms might be constant leaking of urine out the vagina, or frequent urinary tract infections. A urogynecologist would be able to evaluate this problem.

A urogynecologist could certainly evaluate for a vesicovaginal (VV) fistula. However, if you do not have easy access to a "urogynecologist", any Ob/Gyn can easily evaluate for this problem - and most Ob/Gyn's are fully trained and competent not only to evaluate for a VV fistula, but also to perform a completely appropriate repair.
