In brief: Fistula

A communication between the vagina and rectum can occur after various life events, such as birth trauma or diverticulitis of colon, among other causes.
This is a recto-vaginal fistula, and can be diagnosed by your gynecologist or surgeon, sometimes using xray studies. See your gynecologist promptly.
