Ok, hope someone can share I am kind of freaking here.
I just bathed my baby girl Michaela and was giving her a massage (she is about 14 weeks old now). Then I was cleaning around her vagina and I saw that there is no opening. Now this is the first time I examined it so closely so I have no idea if it was open before and now it's not or if it was never open (though I never noticed anything before). Currently there is just a thin line. Though she can still urinate fine, so there must be a small opening though I can't really see just now.
Then I freaked. Then I started looking on line. I read on line just now that there is such a thing as a fused vagina. This means the labia are joined together - apparently this is quite common 1 - 10% of little girls, but hardly known. Usually it self corrects. The alternative is some congenital defect! Anyway, I am going to have to see her pediatrician.
Hope all is fine! Geez! Anyone ever heard of this?
