An imperforate anus is a birth defect that happens while your baby is still growing in the womb. It occurs more often in boys than girls. The rectum, bladder, and vagina of a female baby with an imperforate anus sometimes share one large opening. This opening is called a cloaca. The condition develops in the womb during the fifth to seventh weeks of pregnancy.
