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
