Question (04/6/2011):

Feeling the roughness of the mesh hammock with a digit | Sexual intercourse .

I had the monarc hammock surgery on March 9, 2011.

Is it normal to feel the roughness of the mesh hammock with a digit?

And how will this affect sexual intercourse?

Joyce

Answer:

Dear Joyce,

The Monarc uses what is called a transobturator approach to place the supportive mesh.

A 5-year study of Roberto Angioli, Francesco Plotti, Ludovico Muzii, Roberto Montera, Pierluigi Benedetti Panici and Marzio Angelo Zullo, study published on europeanurology.com on 11 August 2010, about effectiveness of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) and transobturator suburethral tape (TVT-O), indicated that the mean cause of dissatisfaction was the development of sexual dysfunction resulting from dyspareunia or incontinence during intercourse, which was found in 6 of 16 dissatisfied patients (37.5%).
