According to court records, there have been over 1,000 NuvaRing lawsuits filed since 2008. Many of these cases have been combined into a federal class action lawsuit and trials are scheduled to begin in May 2013, though claims can be litigated individually.
Studies and reports have been published by The New England Journal of Medicine, The British Medical Journal, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) all showing that the risk of blood clots is increased in users of NuvaRing by as much as 90% versus older oral contraceptives.

Millions of Women Have Used NuvaRing
Indications are that over 1.5 million women used NuvaRing between the time it was brought to market in 2002 and 2007. Since that time, over a million more women have used the vaginal ring device, thanks to the marketing efforts of pharmaceutical giant Merck. Plaintiffs under NuvaRing’s multidistrict litigation (MDL) have alleged blood clot risk increasing for women by as much as 56 percent, and an FDA published study in 2011 reported as many as 40 patients died as a result of its use - yet a Nuvaring recall has not been announced as of yet.
All of these women were told, and believed, that the NuvaRing was an effective and safe alternative to oral birth control pills. As of this writing, NuvaRing is still on the market and is one of the most popular forms of prescription birth control.
In addition to the lawsuits pending, the FDA has received reports from over 1,000 women who suffered from blood clot related problems after using the device. Because FDA claims are typically vastly under reported, experts feel that there could be tens of thousands of women out there who have yet to report or claim legal recourse.
