User avatar Hi Happy One,

Often, a cystogram can be used to detect fistulas between the bladder and vaginal tract.

A cystogram is when dye is injected into the bladder and it is followed with serial x-rays to see if the dye moves through the fistula.

Your doctor can order this for you.

Best wishes.
