What is NuvaRing?
NuvaRing is a form of birth-control. NuvaRing is a etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring that women insert into the vagina. According to WebMD, NuvaRing is 98%-99% effective in preventing pregnancy. Many women prefer NuvaRing over birth-control pills because NuvaRing does not have to be taken daily.
Is NuvaRing safe?
Women who take NuvaRing should read the warning labels and talk with their doctors about the possible side effects. NuvaRing has been linked to pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), blood clots, stroke, and even sudden death.
Was NuvaRing FDA-approved?
NuvaRing was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Just because a medication is FDA-approved doesn’t mean it is completely safe. Most medicine injury lawsuits are for FDA-approved medicines. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration regularly updates warning labels on approved medicines. That mean that serious side effects may arise years after a medicine is first released into the marketplace.
