Hello Mrs. Bintang Clouds, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. No wonder your baby cries during bowel movements, because this happens when the stool is trying to pass through a channel that is not supposed to be passed, so it will cause pain experienced during bowel movements. This is due to the channel that forms and connects the anal canal and vagina. So if there is residual discharge that is removed through the anus, it will also pass from the vagina. In medicine this condition is referred to as rectovaginal fistulas (fistulas that form between the vagina and rectum).
In an effective treatment fistula to relieve symptoms, improve conditions and avoid complications is to do surgery to repair the channel that is formed is not normal. Because slowly but surely if this channel is not clogged, it will cause complications in the future such as:
recurrence of urinary tract infections
irritation of the vaginal area
disruption of your child's activities in the future because they cannot hold bowel movements
sexual disruption when he grows up
severe life-threatening infections
Surgery is very terrible to imagine, especially if it is done on a baby who is still small, however, if the benefits outweigh the losses experienced, then you can consider this again with your family and the doctor in charge. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information answers your questions. thanks.
