Sedation Gynecology

Gentle, Effective Pain and Anxiety Management for In-Office Procedures

Introduction to Sedation Gynecology

At our clinic, we understand that certain routine gynecological procedures can be a source of anxiety and discomfort. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation, a safe and effective solution to manage pain and relieve anxiety during procedures like IUD placement, colposcopy, injections, and endometrial biopsy.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

    • Safe and Trusted: Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” has been used for over a century as a reliable analgesic.
    • Combination with Oxygen: When combined with oxygen, nitrous oxide helps manage pain and anxiety while keeping you awake and responsive.
    • Self-Administered: Nitrous Oxide and oxygen are delivered through a face mask or breathing mouthpiece, allowing you to control the amount you receive for optimal comfort.

Benefits of Nitrous Oxide in Gynecologic Procedures

    • Minimizing Discomfort: Reduces pain perception during procedures.
    • Relieving Anxiety: Helps you stay calm and relaxed throughout the treatment.
    • Quickening Recovery: The effect wears off within minutes, allowing a swift return to your daily routine.
