Fistulas of the uterus and bladder

Patient

Q: I am a 26 year old female. I had a C-section last May (2014), with no labor or pushing. I am currently experiencing urine leaking out of my vagina. I have had a dye test, a cystoscopy, an IVP and an exam under anesthesia. All of which have resulted in a no found fistula from the bladder to the vagina, nor a fistula from the ureters. The doctor is now suggesting that I simply have incontinence and that Im leaking urine normally and somehow my vagina is soaking up the urine and that is why I have urine in my vagina. Is this possible? Although, during a cystoscopy, he noticed a gush of liquid near my cervix. Is it possible there is a bladder to uterus fistula or what other type of fistula is possible?
