What is Nuvaring?
NuvaRing is a hormonal contraceptive device that releases a combination of etonogestrel, a synthetic generation progestin, and the estrogen, ethinyl estradiol. NuvaRing is a small flexible ring that is designed to be inserted into the vagina once a month. It is kept in place for three weeks, and prevents pregnancy by releasing controlled amounts of those hormones into the bloodstream. Marketed by Merck & Co.’s Organon subsidiary, NuvaRing was introduced to the U.S. marketplace in 2001.
Etonogestrel is a form of desogestrel, a third-generation progestin. In February 2007, the consumer advocacy group [citizen.org/notmypill"] Public Citizen petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to ban oral birth control pills that contain desogestrel, citing studies which indicated they could double the risk of blood clots compared to second generation oral contraceptives.
Pending NuvaRing Lawsuits.
In August 2008, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered all federally filed NuvaRing lawsuits consolidated in a multidistrict litigation and transferred to Judge Rodney W. Sippel of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri [moed.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/mdl/08-1964/1.pdf] (MDL No. 1964). The lawsuits involved in this litigation allege that Merck & Co. and Organon failed to adequately warn patients and their doctors about the potential for NuvaRing blood clots and other side effects. The lawsuits claim that NuvaRing users have suffered blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, heart attacks, strokes and sudden death because of the device.
There is still time for young women who may have been injured by NuvaRing, or their families, to file their own lawsuits against Merck and Organon.
