Pain in right thigh. No recent injury or strain. On nuvaring. Could this be a blood clot?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possible

clots from birth control are a bit more common in the calf than the thigh.
Only way to know for sure is seek an evaluation. It may be something like sciatica too (limited history given, so just mentioning another possible cause)
