The Dangers of Transvaginal Mesh
Over the course of aging or after women have babies, they may find that their pelvic region is not as healthy as it once was. The pelvic organs begin to sag and protrude in a condition called “pelvic organ prolapse.”
This medical condition can lead to urinary problems, pain during intercourse, and the feeling that your organs are actually falling or bulging out of your body. One course of treatment is an implanted device known as a transvaginal mesh.
This plastic mesh is inserted in the woman’s pelvic area and actually acts as a “hammock” keeping the organs in the correct place and preventing the bulging of the organs. However, the device has its own serious side effects as women all over the country are finding out. The mesh can begin to erode inside the vagina; the plastic tightens and can cause inflammation. Within this area are the pelvic organs that make up the pelvic floor region. This can include the uterus, vagina, rectum, and bladder. Obviously, this can cause multiple issues all over the reproductive system. Many cases have resulted in having to remove the mesh which can be complicated and dangerous due to the mesh already deteriorating. Watch the video now to learn more.
