What are the Symptoms of Urogenital Sinus

Urogenital sinus symptoms depend on how severe the condition is.

During development, the urogenital sinus will form two separate openings. The openings become the urethra or opening of the urinary tract and the vagina. The urogenital sinus links the urethra or opening of the urinary tract and the vagina.

If you have chronic urogenital sinus can cause urine from the bladder to fill the vagina. The filling of the vagina can cause “hydrocolpos.” Hydrocolpos is when the vagina swells because of fluid. Hydrocolpos can be found by an ultrasound. It can also be felt if there is a mass in the abdomen.

The organs outside of the body may appear abnormal. Instead of having two openings, your child may have one single opening. Most of these abnormalities are found in infancy.
