Anyone who suffered a blood clot, DVT, pulmonary embolism or stroke while using NuvaRing is urged to contact DrugRisks.com or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible.

The IUD resource center at DrugRisks.com is announcing updated legal news on the site for women using the vaginal ring contraceptive NuvaRing. A recent report shows an increasing number of patients filing claims alleging blood clots*.

DrugRisks’ mission is to improve the safety of patients using popular prescription devices like NuvaRing by providing the latest recalls, warnings, studies and legal news. Visitors can find out if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

Health experts have linked contraceptives like NuvaRing to higher risks of blood clots than traditional birth control pills. Last year, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study linking vaginal ring contraceptives to a 21Ž2 to 3-times increased risk of blood clots**.

Due to the number of patients filing a NuvaRing lawsuit alleging blood clots, many cases have been consolidated in a special federal court in Missouri. The formal case is known as In re: NuvaRing Products Liability Litigation, No. 08-md-1964, JPML, Eastern District Missouri.

Now, DrugRisks has learned that a recent report from the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation shows the number of claims has increased from 1,097 in March to 1,163 as of May 15th, an increase of over 6%*. The judge overseeing this litigation recently scheduled trials to start in October***.

Anyone who suffered a blood clot, DVT, pulmonary embolism or stroke while using NuvaRing is urged to contact DrugRisks.com or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible.

Due to the specialized nature of federal MDL drug injury cases, DrugRisks only recommends lawyers and law firms who have already handled NuvaRing lawsuits.
