Can Children With Atresia Ani Have Children?
I want to ask, if the child is affected by atresia Ani from birth, then defecates through the vagina from the baby to adulthood, and the person feels normal and does not get sick when defecating, can the child have offspring when pregnant?
Hello Epi Susanti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Atresia ani is a condition that is often discovered since childhood, where there is a failure of the formation of the anus in a person. This condition occurs because of a failure in the process of organ development during the womb.
Atresia ani itself has several variations, where variations are in the form of:
The anal canal is narrowed or completely absent
The formation of a channel that integrates with other channels (urinary tract, vagina or base of the penis)
The rectum (the end of the large intestine) is not related to the other large intestine
Reading the conditions experienced by the child you are asking, it is most likely that the child has an atresia condition with the formation of a duct that is fused with the vagina, so that the child's chapter will be channeled through the vagina.
Basically, the discharge of bowel through the vagina will not cause a complaint, but if this is allowed to occur from childhood to adulthood, this, of course, will greatly increase the risk of infection in the vaginal to uterus due to the reproductive tract exposed to many germs from the defecated BAB out through the vagina.
This increased risk of infection also increases causing further disorders of the reproductive tract (eg adhesions of the fallopian tubes, scar tissue in the uterus or fallopian tubes etc.), therefore, the side effects of these infections increase the risk of difficulties for the person to get pregnant . Even so, the possibility of pregnancy remains during the reproductive tract and also the egg cells are produced.
Therefore, the child should be taken to a pediatric surgery specialist for further action regarding the disease, so as to provide a good quality of life for the child in the future.
I hope this helps.
