I'm going anon on this out of respect for my dd.

Well, my dd is currently 20 months. When she was an infant I noticed while I was changing her that she had no vaginal opening. I spoke with her pedi and they didn't really look at it. They just said it's a labial adhesion, it will open on its own blah blah blah. But today when I changed her I looked again and honestly it looks like she only has 1 labia and no vaginal opening. It doesnt look like the labia fused together and It just doesn't look right to me. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Should I be worried?

Yes I knew a girl that was born like that. She had to have surgery to correct it when she was about 14-15. They had to wait for her to be close to full grown.

I would. That just didn't sound right. I just had my first daughter and I double check everything while changing her. Anywho I will get another opinion.

Do you have an obstetrician you can consult with?

Here's an article about it.

See if you can get her in with a pediatric gynecologist.

My dd had that when she was an infant too.  My dr. gave me a hormonal cream to put on her when I changed her and in a week or two it opened. I would be worried about an infection. I would talk to the dr. again or even your ob. Don't worry too much, but I would maybe ask another dr.

I would get a second opinion.

I think I am going to switch pediatricians anyway. They did tell me that it doesn't need to open until puberty when menstration starts, and if it's getting toward that time then we can start the hormonal cream.... so I just put it out of my mind. But today when I looked it it... it doesn't look like the two side are fused together. It looks like there's just no hole there. It also looks like she only has 1 labia. I'm not sure if that's normal or not. 

Quoting wallmom1:

My dd wasn't completely closed either. But it just wasn't right, if you know what I mean. It was painless and really no big deal. Just applied the cream, and it opened up, I just don't think I would let it go, but that is just me.
