Rottenstein Law Group Comments on Report of Women's Contraception Misconceptions

New York, NY, Feb 22, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- A recent study reported by Reuters this week on the birth control preferences of women has been a topic of controversy.* An overwhelming majority of the women surveyed prefered birth control pills over intrauterine devices (including the hormone-releasing Mirena IUD). However, doctors in the story assert that the IUD is safer and more reliable than the pill. The Rottenstein Law Group represents women in Mirena lawsuits and responds to the study with caution. In addition, the firm maintains an informational website on the lawsuits at MirenaLawsuit.us.

Based on an FDA adverse events report** and the many phone calls a week the Rottenstein Law Group receives from women who allege serious Mirena side effects, the safety of the Mirena IUD is in question. Mirena was approved by the FDA in 2000 and was the only hormone-releasing IUD until earlier this year, when the FDA approved Skyla, a similar IUD also manufactured by Bayer.

Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, which currently represents clients in Mirena lawsuits nationwide, said that based on the communications her firm has had with clients, the Mirena carries with it some potentially serious side effects, including device perforation (puncture of the uterine wall), migration (the shifting of the device to outside of the woman's uterus), and embedment (the device becomes stuck in the uterine wall). These side effects, she said, have been the subject of lawsuits around the country, including Prendergast v. Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corp. (no. 13-00450, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania), as reported in Bloomberg.*** "Women who believe their Mirena IUD has injured them need an advocate," Rottenstein said. "This study does not mean that women should be discouraged from pursuing all their legal options." Bayer encountered pushback from the FDA over its Mirena marketing strategy, which suggested the Mirena could offer a woman a "simple lifestyle," downplaying the risks of the device in the process.**** The Rottenstein Law Group encourages Mirena IUD recipients to download an informational brochure from its website to learn more about the device and related lawsuits and to help them evaluate if they have a case.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
