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.

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
