Devastating NuvaRing Side Effects

NuvaRing / The Maher Law Firm / Frank EidsonNuvaRing is a drug known as a 3rd-generation contraceptive.

NuvaRing was intended to reduce the risk of unwanted side effects among its users, by employing a new combination of hormones.  In contrast, the hormones (which include a synthetic progestin known as desogestrel) are estimated to have doubled the risk of blood clots and stroke in most users.

Public Citizen – a non-profit consumer advocacy group – has petitioned the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to ban all 3rd generation contraceptives, (which includes NuvaRing) due to the high risk factors.  The FDA has not yet acted.

Side Effects Of NuvaRing Include, But Are Not Limited To:

  • Blood Clots
  • Pulmonary Embolism (blood clot in the lung)
  • Deep Vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Increased Incidence of Breast Cancer
  • Benign Liver Tumors
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

NuvaRing side effects can be life altering and  potentially fatal.
