In brief: Usually not

A fistula is an abnormal connection between 2 organs.
A vesicovaginal fistula is a connection between the bladder and vagina. There is usually no pain and the symptom is uncontrollable leakage of urine; some patients are even unaware that the origin is from the vagina.

In brief: No

Vesicovaginal fistulas are complications of previous surgery or radiation, or a result of cancer or severe infection.
They generally do not hurt, though the process leading to their formation may cause pain. Women with this condition notice urine coming out of their vagina.
