NuvaRing Class Action

Merchant Law Group LLP has launched class action proceedings against Schering-Plough and Merck Frosst concerning NuvaRing contraceptive vaginal rings.

NuvaRing was approved for use in 2001 by the FDA and subsequently by Health Canada, and was acquired by Merck in 2009. It is alleged that NuvaRing causes health risks, including the risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and heart attack. It is alleged that NuvaRing releases hormones in greater amounts than represented by the manufacturers, thereby increasing the health risks and injuries associated with the use of NuvaRing.

The lawsuits will seek compensation for affected Canadians who used NuvaRing.  Anyone who used NuvaRing is welcome to join this class action info list by completing the contact form below.

NuvaRing Recours Collectif

Merchant Law Group LLP intente un recours collectif contre Schering-Plough et Merck Frosst concernant le contraceptif NuvaRing.

NuvaRing a été approuvé en 2001 par la FDA et par la suite par Santé Canada, et a été acquis par Merck en 2009. Il est allégué que NuvaRing entraîne des risques pour la santé, y compris des risques de caillots sanguins,  thrombose veineuse profonde, embolie pulmonaire, accident vasculaire cérébral et crise cardiaque. Il est allégué que NuvaRing libère davantage d’hormones que les quantités spécifiées par les fabricants, ce qui augmente les dangers pour la santé et les blessures liés à l’utilisation de NuvaRing.

Le recours collectif demandera la compensation financière pour les Canadiens qui ont utilisé NuvaRing.
