NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots by 56%
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Aimee L. Flynn. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On February 3rd, 2012, a Pennsylvania woman, Aimee L. Flynn filed a NuvaRing lawsuit (case no. 2:2012cv00700) in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey claiming that she suffered a stroke caused by NuvaRing. The defendants are Merck & Co., Organon Pharmaceuticals, Akzo Nobel NV and Schering-Plough Corporation. According to the lawsuit information, the plaintiff claims that she used the NuvaRing contraceptive from October 2008 through February 2010. On February 5th, 2010 she allegedly suffered a stroke because of her use of NuvaRing. This lawsuit accuses the defendants of breach of warranty, strict liability, fraud and negligence. The plaintiff is seeking both compensatory and punitive damages for her injuries.
In October 2011, the FDA published a birth control study revealing that NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots by 56% when compared to older birth control pills. Women who used the NuvaRing were at increased risk of DVT, pulmonary embolism and arterial thrombotic events such as heart attacks and strokes.

For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
A growing number of women filed a NuvaRing lawsuit in courts throughout the United States with similar allegations on NuvaRing side effects. In 2009, this growing number prompted the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to consolidate all federally filed complaints in a multidistrict litigation in the Eastern District of Missouri. A hearing was scheduled on February 28th for preliminary discussion of an alternative dispute resolution plan.
