potentially result in higher sustained exposure to estrogen and hence, increased thromboembolic risk
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Dawn Kregel. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
In the lawsuit filed on Jan.9 Dawn Kregel claims she suffered a deep vein thrombosis shortly after using NuvaRing. She is seeking more than $10 million in damages for medical expenses, pain, loss of quality of life, loss of time from her employment, attorney’s fees, interest, and exemplary damages among others.
The FDA study published on October 2011 found that the NuvaRing was associated with a significantly higher risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) relative to standard low-dose estrogen birth control pills. It also mentioned that continuous exposure combined hormonal contraceptives such as the NuvaRing "potentially result in higher sustained exposure to estrogen and hence, increased thromboembolic risk".
