New York, NY (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Alonso Krangle’s attorneys have recently filed a NuvaRing lawsuit against Organon and others on behalf of a woman from South Carolina. This case (Case No. 2:13-cv-02932-SDW-MCA) was filed on May 8, 2013 in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey and specifically names the defendants to be Organon USA, Inc. and Merck & Co., Inc.
The NuvaRing lawsuit complaint for this case explains that the same month, the plaintiff began using the Nuvaring, she began experiencing pain in her lower right leg and saw her doctor for an official diagnosis. After undergoing a venous duplex scan, the plaintiff was informed that she had developed deep vein thrombosis (a condition in which blood clots lodge in and block blood flow through the body’s deep veins). Following this diagnosis, the plaintiff was hospitalized for three days and was placed on anticoagulation therapy, including Lovenox and Coumadin. While the plaintiff had to continue this drug therapy ever since she has been released from the hospital, she has also had to undergo regular follow-up care to monitor her health.

While this NuvaRing lawsuit contends that use of NuvaRing caused the plaintiff to develop deep vein thrombosis, this case also alleges that Organon and the other defendants were aware of but failed to warn the public about the fact that NuvaRing is linked to a higher risk of blood clot-related complications than oral contraceptives. Additionally, this NuvaRing lawsuit contends that the defendants marketed NuvaRing as a safe and effective contraceptive without warning women about the potentially serious risks of reportedly linked to NuvaRing use.
Researchers Link NuvaRing to Serious Blood Clot Complications
The link between NuvaRing use and the development of serious blood clot disorders like deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism has been reported by many medical researchers within recent years. Specifically, in 2012, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that vaginal rings like NuvaRing could nearly triple women’s risk of developing blood clots when compared to the risk associated with older birth control pills.

Another study published in the May 2012 British Medical Journal reported that women’s risk of developing blood clots increased by more than 6 times when using vaginal rings like NuvaRing, as opposed to birth control pills.

In line with the findings of these studies is information from the FDA’s Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS), which has received more than 5,350 reports of serious adverse events related to NuvaRing use since the drug was first introduced in 1997 (though FDA approval was not granted until 2001). Among the most commonly reported adverse effects associated with NuvaRing use were more than 1,170 incidents of pulmonary embolism and more than 1,150 incidents of thrombosis and deep vein thrombosis. According to the FDA AERS, more than 30 percent of women who reported NuvaRing complications had to be hospitalized due to the severity of their injuries, and approximately 3 percent of NuvaRing complications resulted in death.
