Sacralcolpopexy Mesh Complications: Vaginal Pain / Painful Sex
There is a risk of pain with intercourse in 1-4% of patients after sacralcolpopexy. The mesh at the top of the vagina can cause some scar tissue formation or inflammation that typically improves with time, however if it does not then treatment may be necessary. Conservative therapy involves pelvic floor and vaginal physical therapy, trigger point injections, and vaginal dilators in certain cases. If this does not resolve the issue, the mesh may need to be revised or removed.
