What Are People Really Saying About NuvaRing Side Effects?
By Andrea Gressman
Though initially NuvaRing was a medical advancement in birth control options for women, it is not anymore. Currently, hundreds of NuvaRing lawsuits have been filed against NuvaRing's manufacturers due to elevated risks of cardiovascular side effects associated with the drug. NuvaRing side effects include blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and stroke, which can ultimately result in serious injury or death. Mounting studies document side effect risks that NuvaRing poses to female users of the contraceptive.
Statistics Don’t Tell the Stories of Real Life NuvaRing Victims
NuvaRing statistical data and scientific studies are not enough. They only tell part of the story. What the data doesn’t mention are the real stories and emotional impact NuvaRing side effects have on its users, as they were prescribed the drug. Many of these women still suffer from these NuvaRing side effects, including long-term disability or daily prescription medication, even permanent or indefinite medical monitoring.
Some of the most useful and detailed information about the dangerous side effects of NuvaRing are told by the women who used the drug. The stories they share seem to provide the most insight as to what the dangers of the drug really are.
A touching YouTube story about Michelle gives an in-your-face example of the dangers of NuvaRing blood clots and drives home the fact that even young, healthy women are not immune to the dangers NuvaRing poses. You can be hospitalized with serious, life-threatening conditions that can forever change your life, and not for the better.
Women Need to Be Able to Make Informed Birth Control Decisions – Unlike Many NuvaRing Lawsuit Plaintiffs
Due to the personal nature of birth control decisions, what one woman chooses as a contraceptive may not be right for another. That is why it is important that every woman considering birth control has all of her options available and is made fully aware of all potential side effects and benefits of every available contraceptive on the market. Unfortunately for NuvaRing users, the potentially dangerous blood clot side effects of NuvaRing were not made available and subsequently women are now faced with filing NuvaRing lawsuits in order to receive proper compensation for the ongoing medical treatment and pain and suffering they have to endure.
Current NuvaRing Lawsuit News
Recently, many NuvaRing lawsuits were combined into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in a Missouri court in anticipation of many more NuvaRing injury lawsuits being filed in the future. This will also help the 1000+ NuvaRing lawsuits to be addressed in an efficient and timely manner. It is expected that the first NuvaRing trials will begin in May of 2013.This will surely set the stage for how the following NuvaRing lawsuits and settlements will be addressed. U.S. Federal Judge Rodney W. Sippel is currently overseeing the NuvaRing lawsuit MDL.
The NuvaRing lawsuit MDL does differ from a NuvaRing class action lawsuit in the sense that cases in the NuvaRing lawsuit MDL is addressed individually. The NuvaRing lawsuits are still combined to one court and they still share evidence and a common procedure, much like a NuvaRing class action lawsuit would. However, the individual settlements awarded in the NuvaRing MDL may be much larger than one would receive through a NuvaRing class action lawsuit settlement.
