32-year-old Jackie Bozicev, a mother of two preschool-age children, decided to wait before trying for the two more children she and her husband planned to have in the future. She opted for a new form of long-term birth control called NuvaRing, attracted by the benefits named in the product’s advertising materials. Unfortunately, Bozicev would soon fall victim to a blood clot-induced seizure that would prove fatal. In a wrongful death case recently filed by her family, attorneys claim that women using hormonal birth control are at high risk for blood clots, a fact that is often glossed over in promotional materials. A trial date has not yet been set in the matter.
