Hi Memo100,

I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss. Unfortunately, as Trust, we cannot recommend complementary medicines. I have personally had acupuncture following my ectopic pregnancy, which I found relaxing, but it wasn't to help with pain. If you do seek acupuncture, do only seek guidance and or alternative treatment from appropriately qualified and registered individuals.

With good wishes,
