Various FDA warnings have been issued regarding the hazards inherent in the use of this mesh. One clinical trial reported in the Obstetrics & Gynecology journal had to be prematurely terminated when 15 percent of women implanted suffered vaginal mesh erosion within three months. The FDA advised that the risks associated with vaginal mesh are so severe that it should be used only after other options have been exhausted. They concluded that further to the dangers involved, the use of the mesh did not necessarily cure the condition being treated nor provide a benefit greater than that which could be achieved by other methods. The potential
types of complications include:
- Severe pain
- Vaginal discharge
- Vaginal scarring
- Erosion of vaginal tissue
- Mesh shrinkage or disintegration
- Mesh extrusion (protruding mesh)
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain during sexual intercourse
