  • The doctor checked her out and saw that her vaginal opening is adhering closed. He said it's not totally uncommon, and usually when a girl starts producing hormones as she grows it corrects itself. Since it seems to be bothering her, he prescribed a hormone cream that we can apply that should help.

    It was a very strange experience. As I was explaining the situation to the nurse she got the strangest look on her face. I know she thought Annie was being abused. When the doctor came in the first thing he asked was if she had big brothers. I knew in my heart that she was not being abused, but there was just a little hint of a worry there. It was such a relief to have an easy diagnosis. I can't imagine what it must feel like to be told your child is being abused, I just got a small taste of what it must be like.

  • I'm so relieved that it's nothing serious. And you're right, just the thought that your child could have been abused, it's too horrible to contemplate.

  • I know how difficult that must have been for you. And you know I couldn't help myslef wondering the same thing when you posted the first time, but I sometimes tend to get a little worried about issues like that just because I have worked with kids who have sexually abused. I am so thankful that it is nothing too serious and that the doctor calmed your's and her nerves!
