Abstract: Intrauterine device (IUD) insertions and endometrial biopsies (EMB) are common outpatient office procedures performed by advanced practice nurses. There are currently no guidelines for pain management with either IUD insertions or EMB procedures. Combination modalities are the most likely to impact pain perception, but more research is required in this area.
