Rectovaginal fistulae after sexual intercourse are rare. We report a healthy recently married 21-year-old woman who presented to the Jordan Healthcare Centre, Amman, Jordan in 2014 with a five-week history of passing flatus and stool from the vagina. Six weeks prior, she had sustained a rectovaginal injury during initial consensual sexual intercourse, leading to the development of a distal rectovaginal fistula. A successful transvaginal repair was performed nine weeks after presentation which resulted in the complete resolution of her symptoms.
