To improve your experience during in-office procedures, Women First offers you the option of an inhalable analgesic to ease potential discomfort.

Nitronox is a gas mixture of 50% medical nitrous oxide and 50% medical oxygen that acts as an analgesic for pain relief (not an anesthetic, which would put you to sleep). You may be more familiar with its nontechnical name of “laughing gas,” known for helping reduce anxiety during dental procedures. At Women First, Nitronox is self-administered through a mask or mouthpiece during your procedure or treatment, so it can be inhaled as needed to help you relax and take the edge off of any discomfort.

Upon taking several deep breaths of Nitronox, you will begin to feel more relaxed as the gas triggers release of your body’s natural endorphins and dopamine. You should feel the effects within a minute or two, although some patients may take longer to experience the benefits. Once you stop inhaling the mixture, the effects will be completely out of your system within 5 to 10 minutes.

Nitrous oxide is a drug, so there may be risks combining its use with other drugs and medications. Your Women First provider will review considerations of using the Nitronox system with you prior to your procedure. Side effects are typically minimal and may include dizziness and nausea. However, simply stopping inhalation of Nitronox and breathing air should quickly reverse any negative effects.

Women First is committed to providing you the highest level of care in the comfort of our in-office surgical suite. Our in-office analgesia allows you to be in complete control right here—where you will be well-supported by compassionate, caring staff members.

I've been seeing Dr. Price for many years and have always had a great experience with her. Dr. Price has always listened to me and addressed all of my questions and concerns. My only complaint is with a former nurse I saw for medical issues who didn't further investigate them and it got progressively worse. Luckily the current nurse practitioner diagnosed me correctly and have received the correct treatment.

When I was looking for a gyno, Jeanette and Dr. Booth came highly recommended from family that see them and rightly so! Jeanette has the best bedside manner and takes the time to be thorough and understand the patient. When I had an issue outside of office hours, I was able to submit a question on the Follow My Health app and got a phone call in less than 30 minutes from the care team. They’re the best and I tell everyone about them!

I’ve been a patient at Women 1st for 16 years and cannot say enough about this practice. Every staff member is caring, friendly, and very good at what they do. The physicians & nurses are some of the best in the state of Kentucky, which is why I currently live in Georgetown and drive to Louisville to continue my care. Highly recommend Dr. Warren or Dr. Price!

Jeannette Jaggers, APRN is GREAT! I drive a hour and a half just to see her! Makes you feel comfortable and truly cares about YOU! Very happy to have her as my OB/GYN.
