Q: What are some of the possible risks associated with the popular birth control Nuvaring?
A: If you believe you were injured as a result of using the Nuvaring, you should immediately speak with a dangerous drug law firm. A number of possible risks have been associated with this popular birth control, which could necessitate filing a Nuvaring claim.
NuvaRing is a 2-inch flexible ring that women insert vaginally once a month. It contains progestin and estrogen, which, when combined have been shown to lead to serious health complications.
Some of the possible serious risks with using the Nuvaring include:
• venous thromboembolism (blood clots in the veins);
• pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the arteries of leg or lung);
• heart attack;
• (acute) myocardial infarction;
• stroke; and
There may be other types of blood clots or cardiovascular problems that arise from the use of the Nuvaring. To better understand how to protect your legal rights and determine if you have a valid claim, you should speak immediately with a dangerous drug law firm.
Through a Nuvaring claim you may be entitled to damages for:
• medical expenses;
• lost wages;
• pain and suffering;
• emotional distress; and
• loss of life.
An attorney who specializes in dangerous drug cases can help determine the losses you have suffered and the type of compensation that you are entitled. They will also assemble all of the evidence that will be necessary to prove not only the extent of your injuries but if the manufacturer, or anyone else involved in the making, or selling, of this dangerous drug was liable.
