The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Alyssa Foster and women who suffer from alleged Nuva Ring Side Effect. 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 June 6th, 2012, a Pennsylvania woman, Alyssa Foster, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv03435) alleging that she suffered a pulmonary embolism caused by her NuvaRing. NuvaRing is a contraceptive that comes in the form of a vaginal ring using female hormones in an effort to prevent ovulation. NuvaRing was approved by the FDA in October 2001 and it is marketed and sold by the Organon USA Inc. The plaintiff claims she started using NuvaRing in February 2010 and in June 2010 she suffered a pulmonary embolism. Defendants are Organon Pharmaceutical, Akzo Nobel NV, Schering-Plough Corporation and Merck & Co.
In 2011, the FDA published the “Combined Hormonal Contraceptives (CHCs) and the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Endpoints” study revealing that the 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.
