Lawsuits Over NuvaRing Birth Control Problems
NuvaRing is a once-a-month contraceptive which was introduced in 2001 by Organon Pharmaceuticals. A number of otherwise healthy young women on the birth control ring have suffered severe and potentially life threatening injuries, such as:
- Pulmonary Embolysm
- Blood clot
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Heart Attack
The NuvaRing is a small and flexible vaginal ring, which remains in the vagina for three week releasing controlled amounts of ethinyl estradiol (EE) and etonogestrel, which modify female hormones to prevent pregnancy.
Etonogestral, also known as “third generation” progestin desogestrel, has been linked to serious health problems such as a higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and other cardiovascular problems. Some studies suggest that it could double the riisk of blood clots when compared to second generation oral contraceptives.
The Florida NuvaRing attorneys at Trial Professionals are prepared to argue that Organon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has failed to adequately warn about the potential NuvaRing blood clot side effects which have caused permanent and life-threatening injuries for women. As a result of their failure to properly disclose the potential NuvaRing problems, women who have suffered injuries may be entitled to financial compensation.
The Florida Nuva Ring attorneys at The Trial Professionals are offering free evaluations for potential lawsuits for users of the birth control ring who have suffered severe blood clot injuries. All cases are handled under a contingency fee agreement, which means there are no fees unless a recovery is obtained.
