San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Melissa L. Davis. 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 August 6th, 2012, North Carolina resident Melissa L. Davis filed a NuvaRing Lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv04918) alleging she suffered a bilateral pulmonary embolism caused by her NuvaRing. NuvaRing is a popular internal birth control device, a vaginal ring placed near the cervix that was approved by the FDA in 2001. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she used NuvaRing from 2007 to 2010. In September 2010 she sustained pulmonary embolism.
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.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from NuvaRing remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In 2011, the FDA published a birth control study revealing that NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots by 56% when compared to older birth control pills.
