NuvaRing Problems May Cause Women To Suffer Devastating Injuries
NuvaRing is a form of birth control delivered through a small plastic ring inserted into the vagina once-a-month. While it was heavily promoted in direct-to-consumer advertisements, particularly targeting younger women, as a “hassel-free” form of birth control, the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings and information about the risk of serious and potentially life-threatening health problems that may develop from NuvaRing.
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.
Hundreds of families and former users are now pursuing product liability lawsuits after suffering blood clots on NuvaRing, which have caused women to to suffer a:
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Wrongful Death
Neither the drug maker’s aggressive marketing campaign nor the NuvaRing warning label adequately informed potential users or the medical community about the risk of these serious and life-altering problems, which may have been avoided if the manufacturer had not suggested that using NuvaRing was in some way better or that taking a daily birth control pill is an unreasonable “hassel.”
Promotional activities targeting young women included things like “ClubNuva”, which featured “NuvaNews” (providing information on women’s health, fashion and entertainment), “NuvaCards” (where users were able to create cards by importing faces, accessories and a personal message) and horoscopes.
At the same time, the manufacturers were were providing false and misleading information to doctors, which suggested that NuvaRing was equally or more safe than oral birth control pills, even though studies have now found that is not the case. It appears that the manufacturer knew or should have known that information was not accurate or supported by any long-term studies.
If adequate information had been provided about the potential NuvaRing problems that users may suffer, many women could have avoided serious blood clots and devastating injuries like stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and death.
