my 3 y/o's vagina is bleeding

this is the 3rd time in 6 months she's had this problem..the 1st 2 i was pretty sure it was a uti, the doctor tested her urine...and no uti...well it's happening again, she complains that it hurts when she pees, when i wipe her it is pinkish on the toilet paper, and she has peed in her pants twice...she's been potty trained for almost a year. what could be going on? i'm calling her ped in the morning

  • OMG people!! The OP said she is a SAHM and is with her child 24/7. This child is NOT being sexually abused.

    OP: It does sound like an infection of some sort, I would take her to an urgent care or walkin clinic and not wait until morning.

  • Omg please don't get offended but....I have heard of this in the past through a mutual friend and it turned out the child had been sexually abused. Im sorry if I scared you but I had to tell you. Is she ever alone with men?

  • That was going to be the same thing I was going to say... Sexual abuse...

    Either way I would call the doctor - EVERY TIME IT HAPPENS! It could be something serious.

    But be warned that they are going to assume sexual abuse at first too. They will check her for it. They have to. But you don't want to avoid the doctor because of that, doing that could mean that what ever the issue is, gets worse!

    While rare, it could be cancer, juvenile endiametriosis (sp), or other serious issues. Get her checked. If you have to, get her to the ER... Don't risk it, just go!

  • You may also want to talk to your own gyn if your ped isn't giving you a good answer. There have been situations where a child has a very odd rush of hormones, and has what mimics a period. Although she's obviously not in puberty, it's a freak occurance. Mention it to your ped.
