To date, more than 1,000 NuvaRing lawsuits have been filed in state and federal courts. In March 2008, a claim was filed against the company alleging that the advertising of the product downplayed the risks associated with using it.
At this time, the FDA has not called for a NuvaRing recall, but the side effects associated with the device are serious enough, that women across the country are seeking the council of experienced NuvaRing attorneys. There are several options for filing a NuvaRing lawsuit. One option is to join the NuvaRing lawsuit MDL, where victims may file lawsuits under the jurisdiction of one judge, they can have their own attorney represent them and potentially receive compensation. Oklahoma NuvaRing lawsuits are now being prepared for those suffering from the side effects.
NuvaRing Side Effects
NuvaRing can cause dangerous injuries and/or sudden death. The most common side effect reported from using Nuvaring is an increased risk in blood clots by as much as 56% compared to oral contraceptives.
Additionally, NuvaRing side effects can include more severe forms of blood clots, such as thromboembolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE). High blood pressure, heart disease, breast cancer, cervical cancer, gallbladder disease, liver tumors, lipid metabolism and pancreatitis are all associated with NuvaRing side effects.
NuvaRing and FDA Warnings
As of now, the FDA has not called for a NuvaRing recall, but they have published warnings of blood clot risk in women using the contraceptive. These warnings have prompted women to seek out NuvaRing lawyers experienced in NuvaRing lawsuits.
What is NuvaRing?
NuvaRing is one of the most popular forms of birth control on the market today. The marketers and producers, Merck, market NuvaRing as a safe and convenient alternative to oral contraceptive; it’s estimated that more than 1 million women have been prescribed the contraceptive since its release.
NuvaRing is a non-biodegradable contraceptive vaginal ring that is inserted into the vagina to prevent pregnancy. Each NuvaRing releases a continuous dose of estrogen and progestin over a three-week period.
