Normally, the urethra and vagina are separate in females. In rare cases a birth defect causes the urethra and vagina to become one. This is known as urogenital sinus. During development, the urogenital sinus will form two separate openings.

Urethral prolapse occurs when a girl's urethra becomes swollen and sticks out. Learn about what causes urethral prolapse and how it is treated. The urethra is the tube that connects the bladder to the outside of the body. Urine pee passes through the urethra. Urethral prolapse occurs when the inner lining of the urethra sticks out through the opening of the urethra. When this happens, the opening of the urethra looks like a small purple or red donut and seems larger than normal. Sometimes, there is bleeding from around the outside of the opening of the urethra.
