San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Trina M. Gatling and women who filed a NuvaRing Recall lawsuit. And yet, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on June 28th, 2012, North Carolina resident Trina M. Gatling filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv03990) alleging that she suffered deep vein thrombosis 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. Gatling alleges she used NuvaRing from June 2010 to July 2010 when she suffered a severe blood clotting injury known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
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.

According to the study published on May 10th 2012 in 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.
