I am a lurker most of the time but I am curious how 'common' issues regarding vaginal adhesions are for girls (especially young girls not much more than a year old). Our pedi had us use an estrogen cream for my DD Katie when she was 6 months old (the pharmacist looked at me like I was on crack when I said it was for my baby, not me) but it did not work. Anyhow, fast forward to last week when we went to the pediatric urologist and he did a procedure where he numbed and then 'corrected' the issue. He said that he did at least one of these procedures a day (which I thought odd because I had never known of anyone else's DD to have this issue) and we are to bring her back to see him in late January to make sure that everything is still open.
Anyhow, if anyone can tell me if this is 'common' then I would definitely appreciate it.

I've never heard of it and I have 5 girls, sorry. Hope your daughter is all better.

Thank you Amber (Lovinmygirls) for my signature

My oldest daughter had it when she was a baby. (she'll be 7 in march). It was diagnosed around 5-6 months, I remember because they were trying to cath her and couldn't, she had her first UTI (she has kidney/urology issues otherwise). They gave us the estrogen cream, which we used when needed, and she outgrew it around 18 months.

My middle daughter had a slighter case, and our pede said they no longer recommended the estrogen cream, and we just used vaseline at every change and she didn't have any further problems.

Number 3 didn't have any issues at all.

I've actually never heard of the surgery at all.

I have a 3 year old, and it was never a issue with my daughter. I've never heard of it being common with girls.

A special thank you to Amber for the awesome siggy!! You ROCK!!
