NuvaRing is a birth control device manufactured by subsidiaries of Merck such as Organon Pharmaceuticals, Schering Plough Corp., and Akzo Nobel NV. The NuvaRing is a ring-like device placed into the vagina for the purposes of preventing unwanted pregnancy. It is a once-a-month device, which controls female hormones that dictate pregnancy.
NuvaRing side effects are the reason why litigation has been initiated against its manufacturers. NuvaRing has been associated with a heightened risk of blood clots, which can in some cases be fatal. Thrombosis is an alternate name for blood clots, and the blood clots caused by NuvaRing are referred to as deep vein thrombosis, which means that the the deep veins in the legs, pelvis, and arms have restricted blood flow.
NuvaRing adverse effects include the following:
- Blood Clots
- Heart Attac
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Ischemic Stroke
The risk of pulmonary embolism is heightened because blood could potentially become lodged in the lung and hence the body could be denied oxygen necessary for its proper functioning.
Currently the NuvaRing birth control device is the subject of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the Eastern District of Missouri; however, additional cases have been filed in different states. NuvaRing lawyers, such as those at this law firm, are still evaluating cases. If you have been injured you can still get involved in the NuvaRing MDL.
If you have been using the NuvaRing birth control system, and you believe it has caused injury, it is crucial that you see a medical professional. If a doctor identifies blood clots in your system, then you might be entitled to compensation. At this point, it is crucial that you contact an experienced and skilled legal professional to help you pursue your lawsuit.
