Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Can you let me know when you had the sling surgery to be precise ? Between 6 months to one year after surgery, recurrent infections are common, and just need to be treated with culture based antibiotics. Hydration is a must. However, given your symptoms of pain and discomfort during sex, it is very obvious that the sling is too tight. You need to have a revision surgery to loosen / remove the sling. Please get it done, to restore your quality of life. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
