Stress Urinary Incontinence

Pelvic Organ Prolapse · Stress Urinary Incontinence

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are conditions that frequently affect older women after childbirth, a hysterectomy or menopause. These conditions are characterized by weakened pelvic muscles, which can affect the position and function of the bladder, uterus, intestines and other pelvic organs.

POP occurs when the internal support structure of the vagina fails, allowing the female pelvic organs to fall out of place within the body cavity or protrude through the vagina. Many women with POP also experience SUI, which is the involuntary leakage of urine during activities such as coughing, sneezing, lifting, laughing or exercising.

The Dangers Of Transvaginal Mesh

Introduced in the 1990s, transvaginal mesh is a synthetic mesh product that is surgically implanted in women to support the prolapsed organs associated with POP and SUI. Unfortunately, transvaginal mesh has been linked to numerous serious side effects, including:

  • Excruciating pain
  • Organ perforation
  • Pelvic bleeding
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse
  • Recurrence of stress urinary incontinence
  • Neuromuscular problems
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering

Many women who have already been through a transvaginal mesh implantation procedure have been forced to have multiple corrective surgeries to remove all parts of the mesh, which sometimes breaks apart inside the body. For some women, it is impossible to remove all of the mesh, leaving these patients to endure a lifetime of chronic pain.
