Transvaginal Mesh and Its Dangers/Defects Reported to the FDA
POP and SUI are common conditions that women experience after childbirth, a hysterectomy or menopause. POP occurs when a woman’s pelvic muscles weaken and the pelvic organs, including the bladder, rectum and uterus, drop into the vaginal cavity. SUI occurs when the muscles that control the ability to hold urine become weak and do not work, resulting in the bladder leaking urine. Physicians surgically place mesh transvaginally to hold up the bladder or organs dropping into the vaginal cavity.
Transvaginal mesh products may cause serious complications such as infection, organ perforation and erosion of the mesh into the vaginal tissues. Those who suffered from negative effects of Transvaginal Mesh have reported the following:
- Chronic vaginal drainage
- Erosion of the vaginal tissue
- Feeling as though something is protruding from the vagina
- Lower back and/or pelvic pain
- Mesh trim or removal in doctor’s office
- One or more surgeries to repair or remove mesh
- Dyspareunia or Pain during intercourse
- Perforations of the bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- Pressure or feeling of “fullness” in the lower abdomen
- Urinary problems
- Vaginal bleeding
- Vaginal and urinary infections
- Vaginal pain not related to intercourse
- Vaginal scarring
Women who have experienced any of these side effects after having a transvaginal mesh implanted may be entitled to compensation through a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.
