My husband and I never had doubt that we would conceive whenever we decided to start a family, but we were wrong. We went to see the fertility specialist and had a test to determine a cause of infertility. We were diagnosed with “unexplained infertility” and were recommended to start taking medications to stimulate ovulation. We still believed we would conceive soon with some treatment. We were wrong again. Over the next 2 years we went through 1 cycle of IUI and 7 cycles of IVF and still had not conceived. We were very frustrated and medications drove me physically and emotionally crazy. We felt we had enough of these approaches and decided to try naturally. Several years had passed,…

Sadly I lost my first child to a miscarriage in my second trimester, shortly thereafter was where my infertility story began. My husband and I spent a couple of years trying to conceive again with no success. During that time I went to a fertility clinic, took fertility medications, even underwent laparoscopic surgery to find the answers, and yet still was sent home with a confident “unexplained infertility” diagnosis. After months of fertility medications and negative pregnancy tests, I began to have more hot flashes than hope. I decided to break from all the shots & pills and discontinued all fertility meds and treatments. When a dear friend recommended acupuncture and specifically Dr. Cherry’s office, I went in with my…

After experiencing the loss of 2 of my babies, one in my 2nd trimester and one in my first trimester, I was extremely depressed and in need of some answers to why I had these repeated losses. My OBGYN had suggested that I go to a local fertility clinic to begin a large array of tests which ended up leading me to more anxiety and stress, and was costly. Many of the tests came back normal with the exception of a low antral folical count which was most likely due to my maternal age of 38. It was recommended that we do FSH injections which my husband and I weren’t comfortable with so we decided to try a different approach…

I cannot speak highly enough about the level of care that Dr. Cherry provided to me before, during and after our twin pregnancy. From the intake appointment through lactation issues postpartum, he was a cherished part of our “team”, as I refer to them, and I know that he played an intricate part of our successful pregnancy and birth. My appointments were relaxing and I always left feeling we were doing all we could to keep our babies safe and healthy. I had 3 miscarriage prior to receiving Dr. Cherry’s treatment and when my IVF clinic mentioned the possibility of acupuncture, I was willing to take whatever steps were necessary – – this was what was necessary for us. I…

What can I say about Dr. Cherry? I am not a woman of few words so let me tell you all my story and how I came to see Dr. Cherry. When I first tried getting pregnant at the age of 32, I thought I would have no problems. Little did I know that I would suffer from 3 miscarriages and would end up at a fertility clinic. This was in December of 2003 and I was desperate for answers. I ended up having multiple surgeries within my uterus which left my endometrium very thin from all of the scar tissue. I had a baby, via fertility treatment, in Oct. of 2005. I had a very hard delivery and ended…

“I am a mom.” I waited six years to say that simple phrase. Two months before starting my fourth round of IUI (after years of other treatments and procedures) my mother suggested I try acupuncture. Of course I should, why didn’t I think of that before. I started weekly treatments. I felt different after my first treatment …I was relaxed. I had one hour a week that I was allowed to simply relax. I didn’t have to think about the shots, the sadness or the frustration that I had felt every day for the past six years. I just got to be. After the first month, the relaxation followed me beyond my appointments. I was breathing more, I was sleeping…

Dr. Cherry and his staff have been an absolute joy!! My husband and I were fortunate enough to be referred by our fertility clinic. I firmly believe that his services helped us not only to get pregnant, but to ease the symptoms of our twin pregnancy. We are so blessed to be 32 weeks along and not on bed rest!!

I began seeing Dr. Cherry after miscarrying our first pregnancy and three failed IUI’s. We were heading into our first IVF and I read that acupuncture can often help increase your chances of getting pregnant. I had very little experience with acupuncture. My grandmother had used it several times for arthritis, but I had no idea there were fertility benefits. My first meeting with Dr. Cherry completely put me at ease. I was not afraid of the needles, he answered all my silly questions about why this point? Why that? What is up with all the pulses? Overall, I felt very comfortable and relaxed in his care. I saw Dr. Cherry once a week for 2 months leading up to…

Our path to conceiving a child wasn’t the easy road we expected it to be. However, it was made much easier by Dr. Cherry and his staff. After trying to conceive for more than a year, we discovered that my cycles were very abnormal and that we also had male fertility issues, which meant that IVF was our only chance at conceiving the child we so desperately wanted. A close friend who had also been through IVF recommended that I go to Dr. Cherry for acupuncture prior to and during the IVF process. I didn’t know much about acupuncture before that but thought I would give it a try. Dr. Cherry’s bedside manner and calming spirit immediately put me at…

I don’t know where to start besides a big Thank you to Dr. Cherry and your staff for giving my husband and I our special gift. After being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in June 2009 after trying to conceive I was told fertility medication would be the only way for us to have children. We decided to try pills and after 7 failed rounds and being told injections was the only way I found Dr. Cherry online by faith. I began treatment in October of 2009 and enjoyed every moment and became very close to Dr. Cherry and Val. They gave me constant hope and positive feelings at every moment of my journey. After 5 months of treatment I…
