Transvaginal mesh implants have been linked to severe complications including infection, vaginal bleeding and mesh erosion. Between 2008 and 2010, reports of complications from users of transvaginal mesh were five times higher than over the previous three years.
Infections from transvaginal mesh can affect the bladder, blood and kidney. Blood injections are the most severe type of infection caused by transvaginal mesh implants and can lead to organ failure. In some cases, women with transvaginal mesh infections will need surgery to remove their mesh device.
Women with transvaginal mesh infections report experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, blood in urine, diarrhea, fever, painful urination and nausea.
