lymphatic body massage and donor egg ivf

Postby happyheart » Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:16 am

Hi everyone,

I have been offered a free 'lymphatic body massage' by a lady in my area who is currently training and needs volunteers to practise on.
However she can only offer this next week and I will have started my ivf meds. I am doing a round with donor eggs, so I am not stimming this time. I have had a prostap injection three weeks ago to turn off my ovaries and this thursday I start my Progynova tablets which will prepare the uterus for Embryo transfer.

I am wondering if lymphatic body massage would be ok to have five days into my meds and whether it would affect anything? I could ask the therapist but I don't know how much she will know about ivf, and I could ask the clinic but I don't know how much they know about massage!

Perhaps it would be better to decline?
Opinions gratefully received! Would love to know what you think?

Definetly ask your clinic,I don’t know what this massage presumes but I don’t think it will mess up anything if you are just taking Estrogen for your lining.
Good luck.

Thanks Danaa,yes, I can't see that it would be a problem but I'll give them a call and ask!
