NuvaRing is birth control in the form of a non-oral hormonal contraception that is placed in the vagina once a month to prevent pregnancy.  NuvaRing contains estrogen and progestin which thickens the cervical mucus and keeps the ovaries from producing mature eggs.

The accusations against Merck (formerly Schering-Plough, formerly Organon), the manufacturer of NuvaRing, are failure to adequately research the side effects of NuvaRing, or to sufficiently warn woman of the possibility of an increased risk of blood clots.
