DrugRisk Update Shows Increase in NuvaRing Blood Clot Lawsuits
Date:5/21/2013

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

The birth control safety advocates at DrugRisk.com are announcing updated news for women who have used the contraceptive NuvaRing. A new report shows the number of patients filing lawsuits alleging blood clot injuries has increased in recent months*.

DrugRisk was created to provide those using popular prescription drugs and devices with the latest safety alerts, recalls, 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 finding vaginal ring contraceptives could relate to a 2.5 to 3-fold increased risk of blood clots**.

With over a thousand patients filing a NuvaRing lawsuit alleging blood clots, many cases were consolidated to 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, DrugRisk is reporting that the latest update from the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation shows the number of claims has increased from 1,097 on March 5th to 1,163 as of May 15th, an increase of over 6%*. The first trial for these lawsuits has been scheduled to start in October***.

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

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