COSTA, Ana Rosa et al. Pain management in office gynecological procedures. Acta Obstet Ginecol Port [online]. 2022, vol.16, n.3, pp.264-272.  Epub 30-Sep-2022. ISSN 1646-5830.

Office gynecological procedures are crucial for women health. New anesthetic methods that replace general anesthesia propelled the transition from the operating room to an office setting of multiple interventions (insertion of intrauterine devices, biopsies and hysteroscopies with or without with or without minor therapeutic procedures). Moderate to severe pain is often experienced by women, leading to the interruption of the procedure. No consensus exists upon routine use of analgesia during these office procedures. More effective pain control strategies and guidelines are needed for pain relief in outpatient gynecological procedures. The reflection in this work is intended to pave the way for a generalized pain management in gynecological procedures to widespread satisfy women expectations and needs.
