NuvaRing Lawsuits Look Toward Settlement as Health Canada Issues NuvaRing Contraceptive Warning
Date:8/17/2014

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 17, 2014

As Merck looks to settle thousands of NuvaRing lawsuits alleging deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms in the U.S. under MDL 1964, Wright & Schulte LLC reports that Health Canada recently ordered new user restrictions for the use of the contraceptive device manufactured by Merck Canada Inc. In its safety alert, Health Canada warns that women who have migraine headaches with vision problems or constant stomach pain due to problems in the pancreas along with high levels of fats in the blood should not use NuvaRing. There are currently 3,800 NuvaRing lawsuits pending in state and federal courts in the U.S. All of the NuvaRing complaints contend women suffered serious side-effects, including deep being thrombosis (blood clots in the legs), pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs), strokes, heart attacks and death as a result of using the monthly contraceptive device.

Health Canada stated in its NuvaRing safety alert that the vaginal contraceptive ring should not be used by women who smoke and are over 35, or those who have more than one, or a serious form, of the following:

  • heart problems
  • high blood pressure
  • blood tests indicating abnormal levels of fats or substances that control blood clotting
  • diabetes
  • limited ability to move around for a long time after an operation

The safety alert further advised women to talk to their doctors if they begin having such side-effects as liver cancer, joint pain and swelling, uncoordinated jerking movements, skin blistering, hearing loss, gut problems and swelling around the eyes, face and lips.
