NuvaRing Lawsuits

NuvaRing is a once-a-month contraceptive that consists of a small plastic ring that is inserted into the vagina and remains there for a three week period. NuvaRing releases a combination of ethinyl estradiol, a form of the hormone estrogen, and etonogestral. Etonogestral is an active metabolite of desogestrel, a form of the hormone progestin.

All hormonal contraceptives carry some risk of cardiac side effects, including blood clots, DVT, PE, heart attacks and strokes. But plaintiffs in NuvaRing lawsuits claim such side effects occur more frequently among women who use NuvaRing, compared to those on other types of hormonal birth control. Hundreds of lawsuits alleging NuvaRing caused users to suffer these serious side effects are currently pending in a multidistrict litigation in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri.

NuvaRing releases a combination of ethinyl estradiol, a form of the hormone estrogen, and etonogestral. Etonogestral is an active metabolite of desogestrel, a form of the hormone progestin. In 2003, the New England Journal of Medicine published two studies that concluded that the use of low-estrogen oral contraceptives containing desogestrel significantly increases the risk of venous thromboembolism, a potentially fatal type of blood clot, more than low-estrogen birth control pills containing levonorgestrel. In 2007, the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen asked the FDA to ban oral contraceptives that contained forms of desogestral because this dangerous progestin has been implicated in a higher risk of strokes, blood clots and other cardiovascular problems.
