    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – albert Aug 15 at 13:58

    Take a look at this example: texample.net/tikz/examples/feynman-diagram – sporc Aug 15 at 14:15

    Thanks for the answers. My figure was pretty crazy @albert, because of this I didn't show the code (next time I'll do it). – Marcos Aug 15 at 14:59
  • Always show your effort, people can always point you to the problematic part (and you and others can learn from the problems). – albert Aug 15 at 16:01

You mention feynmf in the title but are tagging the question with almost everything... Here a feynmf working start point, to run with latex + mf + latex. (There is surely room for improvement.) It works the same way with feynmp and METAPOST, of course.

\documentclass{article}

Very similar to campa's nice answer but with a scalar propagator for the pion. I only post the code of the Feynman diagram.
