    Hope For A Nuvaring Lawsuit Settlement in Spring 2014

     

    When NuvaRing was first released in 2001, Merck, the manufacturer, marketed their new vaginal ring contraceptive as a safe and more convenient form of birth control. This flexible ring once inserted into the vagina will release hormones to prevent pregnancy. Instead of having to remember to take a daily pill, NuvaRing remains in place for three weeks before removal.

     

    NuvaRing Health Risks

    Unfortunately, this convenience may also bring serious health risks.  Many studies have been done after women began reporting serious injury  after using this birth control ring such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT),  pulmonary embolism and strokes. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration  (FDA) published a study in October 2011 which showed that vaginal ring  contraceptives such as NuvaRing could increase the risk of serious blood  clots by up to 56 percent when compared to low-dose birth control  pills. The New England Journal of Medicine as well as the British Medical Journal recently  published a Denmark study’s findings that vaginal rings may have a 90  percent higher risk of blood clots than oral contraceptives.

     

    Lawsuit Settlements for victims of NuvaRing

     

    Because of these studies and the thousands of women injured after  using NuvaRing, many are now turning to the legal field for help in  filing a lawsuit.

    A recent Danish study have brought the manufacture back to the negotiation table. The danish study explains the risk of blood clots while using Nuvaring as women age.The first  point to take home is that [clotting] complications increase  dramatically with increasing age," said lead author Dr. Ojvind  Lidegaard, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at  Rigshospitalet, a state-run hospital in Copenhagen. "A doubled risk for  thrombotic stroke is not very serious when you are 20 years old, because  your risk at baseline is very low. On the other hand, when you are 35  years old or older, the risk is no longer that low, and you should be  more careful with choosing those products with the lowest risk of  thrombotic complications
