The modern age of pharmacology has offered plenty of great medications and new treatment strategies for a host of illnesses and medical conditions. It is now completely possible to treat a host of things that were serious conditions even a generation ago, and with all of these wondrous advances in medical science, great progress has been made in furthering the positive aspects of the human experience.

Unfortunately, along with these great innovations, there have been a few very high profile and notable examples of disturbing setbacks that have cause questions, concerns and much consternation among the general public and in the medical community.

Take, for example, birth control. The idea of birth control has been around in one form or another for most of human civilization, and modern hormonal contraception has been around for more than half of a century. The modern variety has been incredibly popular, and has been widely credited (correctly or not) with the rapid equalization between the genders that took place from the late 1960s on into today.

The modern version of hormonal contraception works via the principle of hormonal manipulation. These contraceptives work by altering the hormone levels of the female body, tricking it into thinking it is already pregnant, therefore preventing unwanted pregnancy. This has turned most forms of sexual intercourse into a paradigm of pleasure seeking, rather than for strict procreation of the species.

Most of these hormonal contraceptives – usually oral, taken in pill form – have been staggeringly effective, though they have always posed some form of unwanted side effect. In the past, with prior generations of the medication, these side effects were often considered very mild. With today’s hormonal contraceptives, though, the side effects can be quite dangerous, and potentially life threatening. One of them is the Nuvaring vaginal contraceptive device.

Nuvaring is a plastic ring that women insert into their vagina at the beginning of each monthly cycle. The plastic ring secretes an extremely low dose of estrogen and progestin, the two hormones that are used in most forms of birth control.

Common Nuvaring Side Effects

The listed side effects (those that Merck Pharmaceuticals, makers of Nuvaring, have published) of the Nuvaring contraceptive device are nausea, dizziness, headaches and infection of the vagina (vaginitis). In addition, many Nuvaring users experience infections to the upper respiratory tract, sinus infections, and rapid weight gain. These are clearly listed in the Nuvaring literature as possible side effects that occur in roughly 16% of Nuvaring users.

Most of these side effects can be treated medically through antibiotics or painkillers, and the symptoms often disappear once a user stops with the Nuvaring device.

Dangerous and Deadly Nuvaring Side Effects

The problem with Nuvaring though is not its listed side effects, as horrific as those are. No, the problem with Nuvaring is its propensity to cause all manner of cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary diseases in young, healthy women who have no predisposition for these conditions.

Nuvaring Blood Clots

Another severe side effect of Nuvaring is the increased risk of developing venous thrombosis (blood clots) that can impair a Nuvaring user’s health. Blood clots can be fatal if they reach the brain or the heart.
