Depends: Go to a Doctor or Urgent Care or ER for evaluation. You may have a fistula. An abnormal hole in the bowel or bladder. A recto-urethral fistula is a hole between the urethra and the rectum. This hole leads to the leakage of urine in the rectum and feces traveling into the bladder. Or maybe you just have a bad UTI.
