My pulmonary embolism was discovered about a month after discontinuing the Neuva Ring. I was taking MonoNessa at the time of my hospitalization. I do not smoke, and I have no other genetic predispositions to clotting. Do i have any legal recourse againast Neuva Ring or MonNessa? I might be able to prove the existance of clots in my blood during the time i was taking the Neuva Ring.

So, you need to start by scheduling an appointment with a local Attorney that handles medical malpractice. You can use the following sites to find medical malpractice Attorneys:
