Gynecological care begins in the delivery room as part of the newborn examination with palpation of the breast buds and examination of the external genitalia


Gynecological care Evaluation of the external genitalia continues through routine well-child examinations, permitting early

detection of infections, labial adhesions congenital anomalies, and even genital tumors. A complete gynecologic examination is indicated when a child has symptoms or signs of a genital

A6$A A;E0$?&0 Agglutination of the labia minora, termed labial adhesions or, in the lower half, vulvar adhesions, occurs primarily in young girls aged - months to 5 years abial adhesions are not seen in newborns because of estrogen e#ects on the vulva. 

?ccasionally, adhesions occur for the !rst time after age 5, and adhesions presenting at any age may persist to the time of puberty.


Fulvar irritation may play a role in causing the formation of the

adhesions or the progr progression ession from initially small posterior adhesion toan a near2total fusion. 

 The vaginalcovered, ori!ce may be poor completely causing drainage of vaginal secretions. 

Parents often become alarmed because the vagina appear absent  

 The diagnosis of labial adhesions is made by visual inspection of the vulva.   The treatment of labial adhesions remains 

controversial. 0pontaneous separation may occur, particularly with small vulvar adhesions at the posterior fourchette and with estrogeni4ation at puberty. puberty. $f the opening in the agglutination is large enough for good vaginal and urinary drainage, lubrication of the labia with a bland ointment and gentle separation applied by the mother over several wee"s, may be helpful.


Dor adhesions that impair vaginal or urinary drainage, the most e#ective treatment is the application of an estrogen2containing cream

:e prescribe an estrogen2containing cream (e.g., Premarin* twice daily for - wee"s and then at bedtime for another 9 to - wee"s. Appro Approximately ximately half of adhesions will resolve in 9 to wee"s (/3*, and therapy can then

be changed to ointment.  

After separation has occurred, occurred, the labia should be maintained apart by daily baths, good hygiene, and the application of a bland ointment at bedtime for 5 to /9 months.

Dorceful separation is contraindicated because it is traumatic for the child and may cause the adhesions to form again.
