NuvaRing Birth Control – Know The Facts
NuvaRing birth control has been found to have DEADLY side effects. Non-oral
hormonal contraception, brand name NuvaRing, is a small ring inserted
into the vagina monthly in order to prevent pregnancy. The ring contains
estrogen and progestin, just like oral birth control pills. The hormones
keep the ovaries form producing mature eggs. They also thicken a woman’s
cervical mucus, which blocks the sperm from joining the egg.
NuvaRing is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. The ring is put in the vagina
once a month for three weeks and then removed for the fourth week.

NuvaRing litigation regarding blood clotting side effects are being consolidated
before U.S. District Judge Rodney Sippel. The Judicial Panel on Multi-district
Litigation consolidated the NuvaRing cases on August 22,2008, then transferred
the cases to Judge Sippel. A “Status” hearing is scheduled
for June 21, 2013 to inform Judge Sippel about more than 1,090 lawsuits
involved in the NuvaRing litigation. There are six trial pool cases that
claim that the use of NuvaRing caused women injuries, and that the manufacturer
of NuvaRing failed to adequately warn of the risks associated with the
use of the contraceptive, and/or that NuvaRing is otherwise defective
and unreasonably dangerous.
It's not uncommon for pharmaceuticals to be associated with adverse
effects or serious side effects. However, drug manufacturers and sellers
have certain responsibilities to the public, including:
- Exercising reasonable care in drug development, manufacturing, inspection,
- Informing the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the public of any
- Advertising in a truthful and non-misleading way.

may have a remedy by bringing a product liability claim against the drug's maker.
