What Is NuvaRing?
NuvaRing is a type of contraceptive that is made up of etonogestrel and estradiol. These are synthetic hormones that prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation. It also thickens the uterine lining and cervical mucus, which makes it harder for the sperm to reach the egg. In some cases, NuvaRing is prescribed for purposes other than preventing pregnancy.
NuvaRing is inserted into the vagina. It must be inserted correctly in order to provide maximum protection. NuvaRing is about 98 percent effective if it is used consistently and correctly, which is comparable to other forms of birth control. A woman must wear the NuvaRing for three weeks out of the month. She must also wait one week after taking the NuvaRing out before placing another one in.
Many women prefer NuvaRing over other forms of birth control because it is convenient. For example, it can be a hassle taking a pill every day, and it is easy to forget. NuvaRing users only have to insert it in once a month.
Dangerous Side Effects Of NuvaRing
Even though NuvaRing is very effective for preventing pregnancy, it does come with the risk of dangerous side effects. Health care providers have already warned that NuvaRing users who smoke and have a preexisting condition are more likely to develop dangerous side effects. Users who are over the age of 35 are also more likely to develop dangerous side effects. However, many of the women who develop serious complications are under 35 and were healthy before taking NuvaRing.
Deep vein thrombosis is one of the many serious side effects associate with using NuvaRing. This is a condition that occurs when a blood clot develops inside of one of the deep veins in the body. The clots usually develop in the veins in the legs.
Even though there are a number of effective treatments for deep vein thrombosis, some patients will still develop complications. Patients who have deep vein thrombosis are at an increased risk for developing a pulmonary embolism. A pulmonary embolism is a type of blood clot that travels from one part of the body to the lungs. It can potentially be fatal if a person does not seek medical attention right away.
There was a study published in the British Medical Journal in 2012 that examined the effects that NuvaRing had on a woman’s risk of developing deep vein thrombosis. The results of the study showed that NuvaRing users were 6.5 times more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis than women who did not take birth control at all.
Even though every form of hormonal birth control comes with the risk of deep vein thrombosis, the risk is even greater for NuvaRing users. The study found that women who used NuvaRing were two times more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis than women who used birth control pills.
NuvaRing can also increase the risk of a stroke. Some studies suggest that women who use NuvaRing are nearly three times more likely to have a stroke than women who use other types of birth control. It is estimated that there are 55,000 more women having strokes than men every year. There are also more women dying from strokes than men. This is partially due to the use of hormonal contraceptives, such as NuvaRing.
One of the reasons that NuvaRing can increase the risk of stroke is because it raises blood pressure. That is why NuvaRing is even more dangerous to use if a woman has high blood pressure. However, even if a woman’s blood pressure is normal, it may increase while she is taking NuvaRing.
NuvaRing has also been shown to increase the risk of a heart attack. Even though it is rare for a woman in her 20s to have a heart attack, there have been reports of young women having heart attacks while taking NuvaRing. Furthermore, many women have died suddenly while taking NuvaRing.
Why You May Be Eligible For A Lawsuit?
If you have suffered serious side effects as the result of using NuvaRing, then you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. The company who created this product did not provide people with adequate warnings. As the result of this, many women have suffered, and some have lost their lives.
You may be able to get compensation. People who create any type of product have a responsibility to make sure that their product is safe before it hits the market. They are also responsible for providing people with the proper warnings. Because NuvaRing’s makers did not issue the proper warnings, they have failed to live up to their responsibilities.
