Hi,
Do you mean the vagina or the vulva?Vulva is the outer portion of the female sexual part which is visible to us.the vulva can look normal even if she was sexually abused.If intercourse had happened the vaginal opening will have the hymen torn,little bit of bleeding(if recent intercourse),soreness in vagina and vulva.If the vulva is swollen it means the child is is definitely mishandled.Please heed to the child's words and protect her or else she might slip into depression or have all sorts of private part infections
