Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Randomized controlled trial that compares methods of tenaculum placement during intrauterine device insertion and their effect on pain. The two methods being compared are slow tenaculum placement versus tenaculum placement at time of cough. Subjects will be asked to rate their pain using visual analog scale. Primary outcome measured is pain at time of tenaculum placement. Secondary outcomes are overall pain with intrauterine device insertion and provider satisfaction with tenaculum placement.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pain||Other: Cough method for placement of tenaculum Other: Slow Tenaculum Placement of tenaculum||Not Applicable|
The two commonly described strategies for tenaculum placement, slow versus having the patient cough while the tenaculum is placed are utilized by providers based on preference and/or their previous training. There is no published study that compares these methods to one another. The investigators aim to compare these strategies, slow tenaculum placement versus the cough method, and their effects on pain at time of placement. 96 subjects will be randomized to each method. The subject will be asked to rate their pain using a 100-mm visual analog scale after speculum placement, after tenaculum is placed, and after completion of the procedure. The provider will be asked to rate their satisfaction with tenaculum placement on a Likert-type 5 point satisfaction scale. 1: not at all satisfied, 2: slightly satisfied, 3: moderately satisfied, 4: very satisfied, 5: extremely satisfied. All data to be collected using REDCap database.

Active Comparator: Slow Tenaculum Placement
This group will have their tenaculum placed using the slow method
Other: Slow Tenaculum Placement of tenaculum
The intervention in this arm is the placement of tenaculum via slow method
Active Comparator: Cough Method
This group will have their tenaculum placed using the cough method
Other: Cough method for placement of tenaculum
The intervention in this arm is the placement of tenaculum via cough method
Primary Outcome Measures :
- Pain With Tenaculum Placement [ Time Frame: Directly after tenaculum placement ]Measured using 100-mm visual analog scale. Minimum value 0 meaning no pain and maximum value of 100 meaning worst imaginable pain.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
- Overall Pain With Intrauterine Device Insertion [ Time Frame: Directly after intrauterine device is placed ]Measured using 100-mm visual analog scale. Minimum value 0 meaning no pain and maximum value of 100 meaning worst imaginable pain.
- Provider Satisfaction With Tenaculum Placement [ Time Frame: Directly after tenaculum is placed ]Measured using Likert-type 5 point satisfaction scale dichotomized to optimal (Likert score = 4 or 5) vs suboptimal (Likert score = 1, 2, 3). Reported is the number of participants with optimal grasp.
