Yes: I am an anesthesiologist. It is possible to have IV sedation, sometimes termed "twilight sleep" for this procedure if you are very anxious and/or feel the procedure will be painful. Discuss the options with your doctor and decide on a plan BEFORE you have your tube change. Good luck and good health to you!
A 44-year-old member asked:

Not usually: My area of expertise is sedatives, not menstrual cycles, but I sedatives are not known to have an effect on the hormone-mediated menstrual cycle. Perhaps your age may be contributing to the slowing of your menstrual cycle. I would definitely consult your gynecologist.
A 39-year-old female asked:

Experts help: I agree with Dr Jackson. In addition, it is best with neck and spine issues to see a specialist such as a spine surgeon or neurosurgeon to give you the most expert advice.
