The Complications and Side Effects of Transvaginal Mesh

Transvaginal or pelvic mesh devices are surgically implanted for the correction of pelvis organ prolapse (POP). According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is no indication that the transvaginal placement of the surgical mesh has better clinical benefits than other surgical options; in fact, it may actually put women at greater risk for POP mesh complications and side effects, including:

  • Bleeding
  • General Discomfort
  • Infection
  • Mesh Erosion
  • Pain During Intercourse
  • Perforation of Bowels, Bladder, and Blood Vessels
  • Urinary Issues
  • Vaginal Scarring

These side effects can seriously diminish any woman’s quality of life. Some experts argue that the surgical mesh did not undergo adequate testing before being promoted as a viable POP treatment option.
