This study will measure the effects of topical application of sweet marjoram essential oil + grapeseed oil with massage on uterine cramping/pain post-IUD insertion/placement.

The intention is to conduct a pilot study that could give a first look at the data to determine whether this line of research is worth pursuing with more time, effort, and resources. The results of this pilot study will provide adequate data (e.g., variance estimates) needed for obtaining reasonably reliable sample size estimates if larger studies are warranted in the future.


Patients will be consented and randomized to one of three methods by a member of the study team on the day of their IUD insertion. Several variables of interest will be collected via the electronic medical record and via questionnaire.

Condition Myalgia, Muscle Pain, Fetal Death, myalgias, Intrauterine Device, Muscle Soreness, fetal demise, intrauterine fetal demise, pain, muscle, intrauterine fetal death, muscle pains, muscular pain
