Hi, I did accupuncture one cycle but the further along I got the more painful it became so I gave it up. Last cycle which was successful I had an abdominal massage twice two then one day before the transfer to increase blood blow. It wasn't painful.
I had the massage done in Malaysia so don't know if it is part of the mainstream. The massage was deep tissue and was meant to hurt but it tickled and I laughed and giggled
good luck, TH
