Transvaginal mesh complications may require multiple surgeries and/or complete surgical removal of the transvaginal mesh patch. The most commonly seen complications associated with transvaginal mesh implants include mesh erosion and mesh contraction, both of which may cause severe pain and dyspareunia, which is pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse. In previous cases involving transvaginal mesh complications, compensation has been awarded based on the impact of dyspareunia on a couple’s sex life.

As more and more transvaginal mesh lawsuits go to trial (more than 30,000 so far), more women and doctors are relaying tales of horror and pain involving transvaginal mesh complications. Thousands of women have suffered horrible side effects, but right now in West Virginia, a very important lawsuit related to the numerous complications resulting from transvaginal mesh.
Sadly, in addition to suffering from complications that are caused by the placement of the mesh itself, many women suffer from complications that are directly caused by the act of placing the mesh. These serious transvaginal mesh side effects were detailed by a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warning that called out several “serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh” and urged surgeons to consider all other options before using any pelvic mesh device.
It is believed that the number of women experiencing complications from transvaginal mesh complications is much higher than what has been reported to the FDA. If you had surgery for urinary incontinence or organ prolapse and are having any complications at all, you owe it to yourself to have a frank discussion with your health care provider.
