NuvaRing Problems Could Cause Blood Clots for Otherwise Healthy Young Women
The birth control Nuva Ring has been associated with an increased risk of blood clots, which could cause otherwise healthy young women to suffer deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism, heart attacks, strokes or death. However, many women remain unaware of these potential NuvaRing problems, as the manufacturer has failed to adequately warn about the increased risk of blood clots.
Please note that the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer taking on new cases involving NuvaRing. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.
The birth control lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are currently representing women throughout the United States to investigate potential lawsuits for injuries caused by the blood clot side effects of Nuva Ring.
Over 1.5 million women worldwide have used NuvaRing, which is an intra-vaginal birth control ring that is inserted once a month and worn for three weeks. Since it was approved in 2001, the Nuvo Ring has grown in popularity, largely as a result of the manufacturer’s aggressive marketing of the convenience it provides over taking once-daily birth control pills.
However, women are not being adequately warned about the problems with NuvaRing, which are related to the use of the third generation contraceptive desogestrel. Multiple studies have established that third generation contraceptives containing desogestrel carry a higher risk of bloot clots, yet potential users are not being fully advised that they are exposing themselves to this potentially life-threatening risk to enjoy the convenience of the Nuva Ring.
