However, increasing reports regarding pain and other serious mesh-related long-term adverse effects as well as widespread litigation by thousands of women led the US Food and Drug Administration to announce in April 2019 that manufacturers should discontinue production and distribution of urogynecologic transvaginal POP mesh products.
