Many lawsuits have been filed against the pharmaceutical companies associated with the birth control product NUVARING® in the United States.
NUVARING® is a birth control product that releases two synthetic hormones, etonogestrel (a progestin) and ethinyl estradiol (an estrogen), into the woman’s body.
The lawsuit complaints allege that the parties named as defendants, which includes Organon USA, Inc., Organon Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., Organon International, Inc., Akzo Nobel NV, Organon Biosciences, N.V., and Schering-Plough Corporation, not only knew about the potential side effects associated with NUVARING®, but concealed those risks from the public, including the FDA during the approval process.
NuvaRing, a contraceptive device marketed by Organon Pharmaceuticals and Merck & Co., has been named in some 300 product liability lawsuits. The lawsuits claim that NuvaRing caused plaintiffs to suffer serious, life-threatening blood clots.
NuvaRing is a transparent, flexible vaginal ring that provides month-long birth control by emitting a continuous dose of estrogen and progestin for 21 days. The device releases a combination of ethinyl estradiol, a form of the hormone estrogen, and etonogestral. Nuvaring is marketed as providing the same efficacy as birth control pills but more convenient by offering month-long protection.
NuvaRing lawsuits allege that because the device delivers a constant stream of hormone unmediated by the digestive system or the liver, patients end up getting higher doses than they do from older pills. High estrogen doses create a greater risk of blood clots, which can be fatal. The complaints charge that the defendants failed to adequately test NuvaRing or warn about the potential for side effects, including an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and sudden death.
