she started using NuvaRing in 2011, when she was 26 years old, and a few months later she suffered pulmonary embolism and was hospitalized
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than women who filed a NuvaRing Recall lawsuit. 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 November 19th, 2012, Baltimore woman Angela Denise Washington filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv06506) alleging she suffered pulmonary embolism from 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 started using NuvaRing in 2004 and a few months later she suffered pulmonary embolism.
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. Another study published on May 10th 2012 in the British Medical Journal, revealed that non-oral contraceptives, including NuvaRing, have a higher risk of blood clots than combined oral contraceptives (COCs) based on oestrogens and progestins.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that the alleged 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.”
At the end of August 2012, more than 1,000 NuvaRing lawsuits were pending in a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 1964) located in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, according to court documents. All of the lawsuits concern similar allegations that blood clots from NuvaRing caused women to suffer injuries including pulmonary embolism, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or sudden death.
