FDA Study Shows Potential Risk of Increased Blood Clots Linked to NuvaRing Use
After the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a study in October 2011, they reported that NuvaRing users were at a 56% higher risk of experiencing a blood clot than women that used birth control pills that have been on the market for years. The FDA noted that the increased percentage of risk associated with NuvaRing use is potentially linked to the higher dosage of estrogen that women are exposed to further increasing the risk of blood clots being dislodged and blocking blood vessels. These risks are even higher in women that are over the age of 35 and that are smokers.
