vaginal stricture

Has anyone ever heard of, or been treated for vaginal stricture? I have a 17 yr. old daughter, that was recently diagnosed with this and we are in the process of looking for a regular gyno. As of now, I have no idea on what sort of treatment this may take. Can anyone help me?

Re: vaginal stricture

If it is what I am thinking of, she has not gotten her period yet...or really she has, but she has no flow, or cannot insert a tampon?

Is this what you are talking about?

If so, I do know the remedy is surgical, but I believe it is a very simple procedure depending on the severity of the stricture.

Re: vaginal stricture

Thank you so much for answering, yes, she does get her period, but cannot insert a tampon. The practioner she went to, advised us to find a gynecologist, which I am trying to find one now. But, in the meantime, just wondering what it entails. I can't seem to find any information on this. Thanks so much for any info.

Re: vaginal stricture

You didn't say where you live, but I am sure if you post a query for referrals that you can get some kind of information on various ob/gyns.

Vaginal stricture is kind of a generic term...like cancer. There are a multitude of types and severities and the treatment for each type will vary. Once you see the gyn, he/she can do the tests to determine the exact cause and then give you the exact clinical name and I am sure the web will provide you with tons of info.

Good Luck!

Re: vaginal stricture

I think my best friends little sister had this before. She had to have surgery too.
