    Re: Baby girl vagina closing up

    i try to open up to see the vagina last nite and am really lost and confused!

    there is a rather big hole, i think that shld be the uretha, but other than that there are 2 pieces of flesh below this big hole, with a very very very tiny needle-size dot which is not really visible... is this the vagina??

    why didnt my pediatrician check on this when she was 6 mths old???

    intend to bring her back to follow-up 2 mths later. hope everything will be fine. cos she doesnt let me 'stretch' for her..can only quickly clean & put cream for her..
    always battle with her til both of us sweaty.

    the tiny needle-size dot should be the vagina hole. i'm still trying to figure out to see my girl's one. kept struggling from me.

    your pediatrician should have checked. no problem so didnt say anything to you.

    Re: Baby girl vagina closing up

    Dear mummies,

    I chanced upon this thread when researching about baby girls' vagina abnormality.

    Just yesterday, my 13 month-old gal's infantcare teachers noticed that hers look different from the rest of the baby girls in the centre when one of them opened up to check for rash internally (as she is having quite a bad nappy rash). They highlighted their concerns to us and my hubby is worried sick. This morning when I sent my gal to the centre, the teachers showed me where there is supposed to be a slit and my gal doesn't have. They advised me to take her to the docter. One of the teachers said she has came across this topic in her course and she understands it may need surgery.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed now until the doctor verifies.....

    The big hole would be the vagina, the little hole would be the urethra (the urethra is really small).

    For EVERYONE, please read...these are called labial adhesions and they are quite common. The only time treatment is needed is if baby is having urinary tract infections repeatedly or some other infection. Otherwise, you just leave it alone and it resolves itself over time! If there's a problem with infection, they can prescribe a cream. There is NO surgery needed (MOST of the time)! I'm in the US and we almost never do surgery for it here, it simply isn't needed and most girls resolve on their own with no treatment. If they do need surgery, they dont't need to cut, they will separate pretty easily but it HURTS, so dont't try to do it or let a doctor do it without pain management.

    its called partial labia adhesion. Its common for baby girls, some doctors will prescribe estrogen to be applied to baby's girl labia to speed up the process.

    this happens to my baby girl.

    And it only needs surgery if she grows older and starts to have menstruation and the hole is still not open yet then yes need surgery. but when they grow up, it just open up by itself. my doctor from the polyclinic prescribe me the estrogen cream it helps alot that the skin becomes thinner and starts to open up. just try to pry open, not force it open after bath, it won't hurt. its some sort of tissue on the vagina area.
