Genital Injuries in Females
Alternate Names : Vulvar Injuries, Vaginal Injuries, Injury to the Genitals, Straddle Injury
How is the condition diagnosed?
It may be hard to do a pelvic exam in woman or girl who has a genital injury. But without a thorough exam, a healthcare provider may misjudge the extent and severity of the injury. Sometimes the exam is done with the woman or girl under general anesthesia.
Other procedures that may be done include:
cystoscopy, an examination of the bladder
anoscopy, examination of the anus
colonoscopy, examination of the rectum
laparoscopy, examination of the abdomen
exploratory surgery of the abdomen
vaginoscopy, which is a visual examination of the vagina
