Symptoms of Mesh Complications May Include Vaginal Bleeding, Discharge and Infections
Vaginal Mesh Problems: Signs and Symptoms
Vaginal mesh systems were designed to treat urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women by providing extra support to the pelvic organs and relieving the discomforting symptoms of leakage and pressure. While many women were relieved when such a product was released into the market, vaginal slings have been associated with a number of transvaginal mesh complications, including infection and mesh erosion. In some cases, women who have been implanted with a vaginal mesh have seen their symptoms such as incontinence and abdominal fullness return or have developed signs of more serious vaginal sling problems.

Symptoms of Vaginal Sling Side Effects
The use of bladder slings and vaginal mesh systems have caused a number of troubling problems for patients, prompting the FDA to issue a public health notification in 2008. The FDA notice warned of potential vaginal mesh complications, including infection, urinary problems, recurrence of prolapse or incontinence and mesh erosion, which may develop following mesh surgery. Signs which may indicate vaginal mesh side effects include the following:
- Vaginal infections
- Vaginal discharge
- Pain during sex
- Lower backache
- Difficult bowel movements
- A feeling of something protruding from the vagina
- Bladder outlet obstruction
A recurring feeling of fullness or pressure in the lower abdomen and recurrence of prolapsed organs may also indicate that the condition, which the vaginal mesh intended to treat, has returned.
