NuvaRing Lawyers: What is NuvaRing? What are NuvaRing birth control injury problems?
NuvaRing® is a non-biodegradable, flexible, transparent, almost colorless, combination contraceptive vaginal ring that is inserted into your vagina to prevent pregnancy
Serious NuvaRing injuries include:
DVT or deep vein thrombosis
PE or pulmonary embolism
Each Nuvaring releases a continuous low dose of estrogen and progestin over a three week period of use. Like all combined hormonal contraceptives, NuvaRing works primarily by preventing ovulation.
Combined hormonal contraceptives can increase the risk of certain types of heart disease in women with a pre-existing condition or already-heightened risk of heart disease. For women over 35 years old who smoke, suffer metabolic conditions like diabetes, obesity, and a family history of heart disease, are all at risk which may be exacerbated by the use of certain hormonal contraceptives.
Women who use transdermal patches or vaginal rings for contraception have a 7.9 and 6.5 times more increased risk of confirmed venous thrombosis compared with non-users of hormonal contraception of the same age.

NuvaRing does not protect against HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and syphilis.
In 2010, 5.5 million NuvaRing birth control prescriptions were filled.
There are approximately 900-1,000 pending NuvaRing lawsuits throughout the United States.
