Transvaginal meshes are surgical meshes that are inserted through an incision in the vaginal wall, and are designed to counteract pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a condition in which the organs slide forward and downward. POP is a result of weakened tissues in the pelvis, and transvaginal mesh is used to strengthen the vaginal walls, thereby supporting the internal organs. Unfortunately, there is a risk of complications with these products, and transvaginal side effects can be painful and permanent, severely affecting the victim’s quality of life.
