    Hi Sarah,

    I don’t have experience with KD9 for afterpains. However, one point I use a lot for menstrual cramps is Tung 22.25 Zhong Guan. It is on the PC channel, about half a cun distal to PC7 (press and look for a tender spot). The rationale is that we can project the uterus / lower abdomen to this portion of the hand (needling into a tender spot is important). In my experience, this reliably results in cramps quieting down or completely disappearing.
