Reports indicate NuvaRing® users have a higher risk of pulmonary embolisms and blood clots.
Manufactured by Organon Pharmaceuticals USA Inc, NuvaRing is a flexible ring that releases a low dose of hormones to prevent pregnancy. It slowly releases progestin and estrogen over a 21-day period. It is similar to an oral contraceptive, but the NuvaRing does not require a patient to remember to take medication every day.
Since the birth control ring is a relatively new form of contraceptive there is a lack of published studies addressing its safety. In 1995 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acknowledged the risk of blood clots caused by the use of contraceptives containing desogestrel. Blood clots can lead to serious complications.
Numerous side effects include:
- Non Vaginal Blood Clots
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Heart Attack
- Pulmonary Embolism
