Side Effects of the NuvaRing & What You Should Know
Among possible life-threatening side effects of the NuvaRing, blood clots lead the list. If you or a family member used NuvaRing and blood clots or other dangerous or deadly side effects developed, consult an experienced lawyer now.
NuvaRing is a low-dose hormonal contraceptive. Unlike the popular use of birth control pills, which are taken orally, NuvaRing is an inter-vaginal device which is inserted by the user once monthly. NuvaRing emits a low dosage of hormones which helps to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Though the device may be considered more convenient than the daily regimen of taking the birth control pill, it is linked with many life threatening health risks.
Serious Side Effects of the NuvaRing
NuvaRing users may have an increased risk of suffering from the following list of serious side effects:
- Blood clots
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism

NuvaRing uses a combination of progestin (etonogestrel), which contains desogestrel and estrogen. Experts believe that contraceptives which use desogestrel, such as NuvaRing, increase to double the risk of blood clots.
