Labial Adhesion

Anna’s Age: 1 year 3 months 12 days

It means the inner lips of her vagina — her labia minora — have become stuck together. The area that’s joined may be just a small section, or it may be extensive. This happens to about 2 percent of girls up to age 6 in the United States, and while the condition can be unsettling for parents, in most cases it’s nothing to worry about.

Even if you do all you can (apply estrogen creme), the little girl might continue to have adhesion on and off throughout childhood. But when she reaches puberty and her estrogen levels rise, the condition should disappear. Until then, there’s no reason to be concerned about the adhesion if it’s not causing any problems. Many little girls never even know they have it.
