On the sacrum medial and inferior to the PSIS, level with the 2nd PSF.

UB 32 has some precautions to be considered (see our precautions list).
Cautions with pregnancy (PG)
A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB32, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Kidney Qi Deficiency and/or Liver Blood Stagnation
UB 32 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Back Pain, Dysmenorrhea (Menstrual Pain - Cramps), Irregular Menstruation, Labor Promotion, Leukorrhea and/or Sciatica
While not necessarily valid clinically, EX Huatuojiaji at S2 (S2 influences the bladder and is used for a range…), UB 28 (Main point for all Bladder issues: from damp heat…) and UB 53 (Local Point.) are nearby.
