Online PR News – 20-June-2012 – Houston, TX – NuvaRing is one of the most popular forms of contraception utilized by women in the United States. Unfortunately, in recent years, some of the dangers associated with using this device have come to light, and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that women who use NuvaRing could be as much as 56% more likely to suffer a clotting-related complication when compared to other birth control options, including some birth control pills.
The British Medical Journal recently supported the claims about potential NuvaRing side effects after examining a Danish study which followed the health problems of women using non-oral hormonal birth control. The results state that women using vaginal rings were 6.5 times more likely to develop a blood clot than women who were not using hormonal contraceptives.
Both studies have supported claims made by women across America about some of the dangerous side effects that may result from NuvaRing use. Lawyers at Williams Kherkher urge victims to seek legal aid if they are facing a NuvaRing-related complication.
Blood clots can manifest in serious health problems such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, both of which are costly and complicated to treat. The attorneys at Williams Kherkher urge anyone experiencing a NuvaRing side effect to seek both medical and legal assistance as soon as possible.
