Hi everyone, I noticed last year when cleaning my daughter of 4 mths old she didn't seem to have a vagina opening she had everything else I went to 2 doctors who looked and said she was fine unhappy I asked a 3rd who agreed she had no opening and has referred her to paediatrics this is nearly 5mths ago I am going out of my mind with worry and thinking the worst case scenario for her . just wondering has this happened to anyone else's little girl complete down below bar no vagina entrance.

It sounds to me like fused labia. My daughter had this and was referred to a hospital consultant. They popped it open with a cotton bud and she was prescribed oestrogen cream. All fine now.

My daughter also has this she is 3 , it's fused labia and quite common it looks like the entire vagina entrance is sealed we have been prescribed oestrogen cream which is gradually opening it. It's nothing serious and generally sorts itself

A friends baby had this - they prescribed a hormone cream. Don’t think it’s that uncommon.

Really ive been online driving myself mad that she has no vagina no womb, im really crossed the first 2 doctors did not look properly I know 100% she had no opening and when the 3rd doc asked did she bleed after birth and I said no she looked again and said yes there was no opening hopefully that's were it ends and she isn't missing parts! , that was it left on limbo since.

Thankyou for your reply ☺how old was your daughter when she was referred? coukd the doctor tell straight away or did they have to do any scans?

Could you get GP to chase up referral 5 months long time to wait

Very likely to be fused labia (and everything normal underneath).

DD had this, just a white line where her vaginal opening should be. I took her to a specialist and he said it was actually very common (just not often noticed as many parents don't look that closely!) and would open by itself at some point, he said it would only need treatment if not opened by puberty. He also advised against opening it with hormone cream as it could just reclose anyway.

She is nearly 3 and it has just opened by itself, no intervention at all, in the last month or so. All seems fine, looks normal now.

TBH given the huge poonamis she used to do in her nappy I was quite relieved the poo couldn't get inside her!

Hi minipie, thanks for replying it was totally random how I noticed fluke really cleaning her one day, really wish I hadn't ever noticed ive Googled the most worrying stuff no womb operations etc which I know u should not Google been so upset fr her, ive not had a proper look to see any line or anything it just looked very smooth everything else is there just no opening,I've all boys to so no experience with baby girls.

I think some years ago there was quite a long thread about someone who'd found the same. She was given cream to open it up and it was all fine.
I think this was it:

Honestly the specialist I saw said this is really common whereas anything being wrong on the inside is much much rarer and usually in those cases something else looks wrong on the outside too.

He said a colleague of his has three daughters and she checked and two of them had it as babies, both just opened up one day, if she hadn't deliberately checked she never would have known.

I only noticed because her older sister (who was 2 at the time) asked to have a look!! The white line I mentioned is really faint, DD was basically smooth there as you say.

Follow up the referral for your own peace of mind but it is very likely to be just fused labia and sort itself out.

Thankyou all i do feel a little relief my poor husband does not want to know about this topic everytime I bring it up its fingers in the ears with him😂 and I didn't want to discuss outside with my female family as I felt disloyal to her privacy.
