Have you experienced serious side effects from NuvaRing?

NuvaRing®Birth Control – Nationwide Claims Assistance

NuvaRing is a low-estrogen contraceptive device manufactured by Organon USA, Inc. and was approved in October 2001 by the FDA for sale in the U.S.

NuvaRing prevents pregnancy by providing a steady level of the female hormones estrogen and a form of progestin, desogestrel.  The hormones are released into the bloodstream and absorbed through the vaginal wall.  Each ring is used for one cycle, comprising 3 weeks continuous use of the ring followed by a 1-week ring-free period.

NuvaRing has recently been linked to serious, life-threatening side effects including blood clots (venous thromboembolic events) in women.  The FDA acknowledged this risk back in November 1995 that, “new studies indicate about a two-fold increase in the risk of venous blood clots associated with products containing desogestrel.”

Most recently……

Third generation contraceptives containing desogestrel have recently come under fire due to the increased risk of blood clots.  In April 2008 more than 50 lawsuits were filed in Essex County, New Jersey against the pharmaceutical company Organon asserting that NuvaRing caused a stroke-induced death, cases of pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung), and other serious blood clot related injuries in women using this contraceptive vaginal ring.
