Hello and welcome to HCM,
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.
I understand your concern very well. Estrogen
levels are low in children and begin to increase after pubertal changes set up. But this should not lead to labial fusion. Normally there is enough estrogen in the body of children to prevent this.
I suggest that you get her ultrasound
done to see if the uterus
and ovaries are normal or not as many times there are associated vaginal septums or other minor problems.
If the labia are close by but the vagina is well developed, a minor surgery will correct the defect. Also another condition called imperforate hymen
may also be a cause rather than labial fusion.
It is best if you see another gynecologist and have an examination and opinion rather than giving repeated estrogens at such a tender age.
Please do not worry. It may at the most require a minor surgery at an older age.
Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
