NuvaRing® Blood Clots
Used to prevent pregnancy, NuvaRing® is a flexible ring inserted into the vagina where it remains for three weeks. During that time, it releases synthetic estrogen and progestin. NuvaRing® has been linked to an increased risk of blood clots.
NuvaRing® Blood Clot Lawsuit
In March 2008, the family of a 32-year-old woman who developed a deadly blood clot after using the contraceptive filed a NuvaRing® lawsuit against the contraceptive's maker. The woman had been using the vaginal contraceptive for about six months when she suffered the blood clot. The lawsuit claimed that the maker of NuvaRing® failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of potentially fatal clotting due when using the NuvaRing® birth control method.
