Based on our knowledge about pain and cramping from laser vaporization, the purpose of this study is threefold: (1) to evaluate whether there is a difference in the intensity and duration of pain experienced by patients using an intramucosal as compared with a distal paracervical block during the electrosurgical loop excision of the cervical transformation zone; (2) to evaluate whether there is a difference in the intensity of cramping experienced by patients using the intramucosal block as compared with a distal paracervical block during the electrosurgical loop excision procedure; and (3) to evaluate whether pain or cramping is perceived more frequently during the electrosurgical loop excision procedure.
