Hello doc, my child is 13 months old, her vaginal opening has only been meeting for 1 week, if I urinate normally, only the vaginal opening is closed like that doc, thank you before.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The condition is called hymen imperforata in medical language. Hymen imperforata is a congenital birth defect characterized by no holes or gaps in the vaginal opening so that the hole is completely covered by the hymen. This condition is generally known in the period before adolescence, but can also be earlier (ie, as a baby).
Hymen imperforata will cause the patient not to menstruate blood even though other signs of puberty are already visible, accompanied by complaints of abdominal pain. If an examination is performed, it will appear bluish and prominent hymen, which is caused by menstrual blood collected there. If the condition is left unchecked, menstrual blood may accumulate in the uterus so that the uterus will look enlarged. This is what makes patients come to consult a doctor.
You don't need to worry too much. Generally this condition is not followed by other congenital defects. And the handling is very simple, that is only through a small surgery by making a hole in the hymen or during the virgin. So, you can take the child to the child's pediatrician to be able to do the small surgery.
Thus hopefully useful.
