Hello, this is Darrell Castle. I’m an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee and today on this video I’m talking about problems with the birth control device, NuvaRing.
NuvaRing was originally thought to be, or hoped to be atleast, a safe, effective, convenient alternative to birth control pills. But there have been many many problems with it.
The FDA and medical journals across the country have released studies showing that NuvaRing has been associated with various clotting problems – some of these are even life-threatening, like deep-vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and stroke.
Pulmonary embolism is a condition that’s caused when the blood clot forms in some other part of the body, then travels to the lungs – the lungs that blocks off a major artery, causing an embolism.
As I said, these things are all life-threatening, or can be life-threatening so they’re very, very serious. And if you’ve had any problems like that while using the device, NuvaRing, or you know of someone who has, or if you’ve had classic symptoms of a stroke, or chest pains, numbness in your arms or legs, coughing up blood, things like that are all symptoms that could be caused by problems related to this device, so you need to get help immediately for that, and by all means see somebody that is experienced and can get you the legal help that you need – there might be compensation involved for the pain and suffering that you’ve gone through.
