Are there more serious NuvaRing risks?

Yes. Approximately 1,000 serious adverse incidents have been reported to the FDA by women using NuvaRing and their doctors. Reported problems include:

  • Blood clots
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Heart attack
  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Liver cancer
  • Gallbladder disease

A particularly poignant case was described in an article in Marie Claire magazine, where a 26-year-old woman developed life-threatening blood clots linked to NuvaRing use.
