Vaginal mesh is an implanted medical device used to treat prolapse and incontinence in women. It's meant to help when tissues that hold up certain organs become weak after childbirth, pregnancy, or trauma to the area. It also is supposed to support weak pelvic muscles that can cause incontinence.
Unfortunately, for many women the device has hurt more than it helped. Vaginal mesh has been connected to erosion, bowel & bladder perforation, and hemorrhaging. Side effects can include:
- Severe pain during intercourse
- Chronic pain
- Protruding or exposed mesh
- Surgery required - sometimes multiple surgeries
And to top it all off, vaginal mesh is also connected to a recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence - the very problems it was meant to cure!
Because the implant is meant to be permanent, reversing the procedure and restoring the body isn't always possible. Therein lies the tragedy: women are getting hurt, and no one's doing anything about it.
