Side Effects of Transvaginal Mesh Have Consequences for Couples
After transvaginal mesh products began to be introduced to the pharmaceutical market, many women thought that the mesh devices would bring them comfort after suffering from intimate discomforts like pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Transvaginal mesh slings or patches were created as alternatives to more invasive abdominal procedures but have so far, created painful and costly problems for tens and thousands of women. These complications can include pain, nerve damage, infection, painful sexual intercourse and recurrence of POP or SUI.
Given the various negative side effects that have emerged from these products, thousands of women have already begun filing legal claims against the several manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products and man have so far won substantial claims. Although many women allege physical pain, they also allege that the products caused suffering in their personal and emotional lives, a pain that can’t be fixed with a financial settlement.
Transvaginal mesh products, as noted above, can lead to painful sexual intercourse. Others may experience pain and infections. For many partners, this means limiting or altogether putting a stop to the physical component of their relationship. This in turn can cause stress on the relationship and lead to problems within the relationship, which can then lead to marital problems and divorce. That’s why it’s important for those who have suffered because of a transvaginal mesh product to know that they and their partner may have legal recourse for both individual’s pain and suffering.
