Nuvaring contains a combination of estrogen and a synthetic form of progestin desogestrel. Unlike other birth control methods on the market, Nuva ring delivers a constant flow of these hormones to a woman's body throughout the entire month. Unfortunately, the combination of these hormones has been linked to causing serious side effects including death.
Nuvaring birth control has been on the market since 2001, and has caused numerous unnecessary injuries and deaths. Although knowledge of increased risks and chance of side effects have been known for more than a decade, Nuva ring has not faced an FDA recall.
However, the FDA confirmed as early as 1995 that Nuvaring does put users at an increased risk for serious side effects and death.
