NuvaRing is considered a 3rd Generation Birth Control product, designed for women to be inserted in their vagina in place of having to take "the Pill" every day. The "ring design" was supposed to be innovative and "safe", however as of early 2013 over 1000 lawsuit have been filed against the NuvaRing Manufacture, Merk Pharmaceutical and Schering-Plough and Organon (who were acquired by Merk). The women are suing from pain, suffering, and in some cases death from the following side effects:
- Heart Attack
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Blood Clots
NuvaRing is subject to a Federal MDL Filing in U.S. District Court of Missouri, and in State Court in New Jersey. Many more women are expected to file suits in the upcoming months since the NuvaRing has been implanted over 5MM times, giving Merk and the prior companies up to $600MM in international sales by 2011. To date, NuvaRing has not been voluntarily recalled by Merk or the FDA, and the company continues to market the product as of early 2013.
