Does vaginal scarring from child abuse look different from that from childbirth?

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?

2 yrs ago, and only once, which turned out to be testing error

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had 2 children, I have been told that I have scarring, I told both dr's it must have been from child birth, one just shut up, and the other said he didn't think so, but I never [pursued it

Vaginal scarring would be the same irrespective of the cause so it is very difficult to differentiate the cause. Since you have two children it is most likely from child birth or use of instruments during delivery.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
