Since massage can release toxins, at what point in your protocol do you stop getting one?
When I did my fresh cycle I stopped when i started stims.
Now I am doing FET, when should I stop?

Am I over-thinking this?

I have researched and thought a lot about this too! I read it's fine to go weekly during IVF... even beneficial..so I have an appt Mon..day 3 of stims and Sat..day 7..I am stopping after that. I don't want to go right before and risk the toxins....and I will drink a ton of water to flush it out...I was reading a msg board and women did it the night before txfer and got pg...I think as long as you dont go after txfer..its ok...but not a hard massage...just swedish or whatever is relaxing to you..... Gooood luck!!!!!!

Wow! That's a great question, Lucy! I have to go for "lymphatic massage"
bc I had lymph node removed and experience swelling in my arm. It's a treatment, not really relaxing, but it still has similar effects. I'm so glad you asked this! Ok going to ask bout this one ladies - I have an appt on Thurs.

I stopped massage 3 days before transfer and just drank plenty of water. I did have my husband do shoulder, neck & back rubs during the 2WW just stayed away from the professional massages
