  hey hey all you girls with fistulas!! Im new to this web sight and i already LOVE it!!! ok so here is my problem...... im 14 years old with a fistula. To even make it worse i cant tell my mom about this, but i can post this on the internet... weird!!! according to reasurch my condision is a fistula, i think. So when i go to the bathroom i noticed that i pee out of a diffrent hole than the normal one... sorry about the details.  when im older (like in the 20's) i would like to have children, but i have no clue if that is posible with a fistula.  really need to get some support on this and some other point of views in what i should do about this... i dont know if i am just freaking out about this to much or if it is supper serious.... thanks

You need to see a doctor immediately.
Dx with Crohn's Feb 2009, but was told that I had probably had it a long time.

Remicade 1 on 19 April 2010. Remicade 2 on 3 May 2010. B12 once a month, OTC Multi, D, C, Fish Oil daily. A pathetic 130 lbs.

David is right Korrinn, fistulas are serious and require medical attention, and you can go to a Dr on your own if you are frightened of telling your mother. Try and get into a female doctor if you are worried about a male looking ‘down there’

I had a peri-anal fistula and abscess and it was not fun.

You really need to tell your mom asap so she can bring you to the doctor. I am not sure if you think she will think you are sexually active but a fistula has nothing to do with that. Do you have Crohn's disease? You are only 14 years old and your mom really needs to know that you have to see the doctor because if it is a fistula you should find out and get help asap. Don't be scared or embaressed to tell anyone but DO make sure you do tell someone and get to the doctor. Please let us know how everything goes. Good Luck

I agree I think it is important that you tell your Mom about this and get into a colorectal surgeon and have him look at this. This is something that should not be left alone. Good luck!

If you are peeing out of a different hole, that is not a good thing. Please! Tell your mom and get to a doctor immediately!

To answer your question about pregnancy and a fistula, I had no problem conceiving or carrying to term with a fistula. I did have to have a C-section though because the Dr. was afraid that if I delivered vaginally, the baby might tear through the fistula causing severe internal infection.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
