Ordinarily the lips of skin labia surrounding the entrance to the vagina are separated. In rare cases, they grow together to block the opening, partially or completely. This condition, called labial adhesions sticking together of labia , may occur in the early months of life or, less frequently, later on if there is constant irritation and inflammation in this area. In these latter cases, the problem is usually traceable to diaper irritation, contact with harsh detergents, or underwear made with synthetic fabric.

Vertical or Complete Vaginal Septum
A transverse vaginal septum can occur at many different levels of the vagina. A large percentage of women with a transverse vaginal septum have a small hole or fenestration within the transverse vaginal septum, so they may have regular menstrual periods, although the periods may last longer than the normal day cycle. During an examination, a woman may find that she has a normal hymeneal opening and a lower vagina. As one enters the vagina there will be a fibrous wall of tissue and this is the transverse vaginal septum. Above the transverse vaginal septum, there is a normal vagina. If there is a complete obstruction without a hole within the transverse vaginal septum, then if a woman is having menstrual cycles there is a blockage of the blood and it will collect in the upper vagina. A transverse vaginal septum will most likely require a surgical procedure to resect the fibrous septal tissue.

Many things can affect this process. How severe your baby's problem is depends on when the interruption occurred.
