The Ortho Evra birth control patch has been in use since 2002. It is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. As opposed to more traditional birth control methods, Ortho Evra distributes progestin and estrogen directly into the bloodstream through a patch. Since Ortho Evra exposes women to much higher levels of estrogen it increases the risk of blood clots in women. Blood clots can cause heart attacks, strokes and even death.
If you or a loved one has suffered a blood clot after you were prescribed Ortho Evra please contact one of our experienced Cleveland Ohio product liability lawyers today. We are currently evaluating Ortho Evra related claims nationwide.
