The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Kristina Marie Isaac. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on May 30th, 2012, an Iowa woman, Kristina Marie Isaac, filed a NuvaRing Lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv03240) alleging that her NuvaRing caused her an acute pulmonary embolism. NuvaRing is a popular internal birth control device, a vaginal ring placed near the cervix. It was approved by the FDA in October 2001 and it is marketed and sold by subsidiaries of Merck, Organon USA Inc. and Schering-Plough. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims she started using Nuvaring in May 2009 and in June 2010 she suffered an acute pulmonary embolism.
A study published on May 10th 2012 in the British Medical Journal revealed that women who use vaginal rings for contraception have a 6.5 times increased risk of confirmed venous thrombosis compared with non-users of hormonal contraception of the same age. As published on February 28th, 2012 in Merck & Co., Inc. form 10-K annual report for the fiscal year 2011, approximately 950 NuvaRing lawsuits were pending as of Dec. 31st 2011. The plaintiffs seek damages for injuries allegedly sustained from their NuvaRing use, including some alleged deaths, heart attacks and strokes.

In October 2011, the FDA published a study revealing that NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots, including deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) by 56% when compared to older birth control pills.
