nuvaring safety

Thing 1: Has anyone asked their doctors lately about NuvaRing's safety, in light of the lawsuits about strokes? Alternately, has anyone found a balanced article outlining the safety that's not from Organon, wikipedia or a lawyer's site?
Thing 2: Drugs.com says this about the Nuvaring:
If you will be having surgery or will be confined to a chair or bed for a long period of time (such as a long plane flight), notify your doctor 3 to 4 weeks beforehand. Special precautions may need to be taken in these circumstances while you are taking NuvaRing Ring.

Really? Has anyone done this and taken said special precautions? Because dude, I can be sedentary for the length of a long plane flight: it's called sleeping in.

I'm trying to tell myself that while there might be an increased risk of stroke or blood clot with NuvaRing, there's not enough data to really be sure, and therefore I shouldn't worry for now. I should have asked the PP doc when I had the chance last week.
