Women who used a vaginal ring had a 6.5 times higher risk for developing blood clots
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than women who suffer from Nuva Ring severe adverse events. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to the study published on May 10th 2012 in the British Medical Journal, non-oral contraceptives, including NuvaRing, have a higher risk of blood clots than combined oral contraceptives (COCs) based on oestrogens and progestins. NuvaRing, approved by the FDA in 2001, is a contraceptive that comes in the form of a vaginal ring using female hormones in an effort to prevent ovulation. Women who used a vaginal ring had a 6.5 times higher risk for developing blood clots compared to non-users of hormonal contraception. The team conducting the study collected data on incidents of venous thrombosis in Danish women, aged 15-49, using methods of birth control other than the pill.
As of Dec. 31st 2011, approximately 950 NuvaRing lawsuits were pending alleging injuries sustained from NuvaRing use, including some alleged deaths, heart attacks and strokes. NuvaRing is marketed and sold by subsidiaries of Merck, Organon USA Inc. and Schering-Plough.
