My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we got pregnant with our son on our very first try. When we decided to have another child, I knew that it might not happen the first time, but never thought we would be trying over a year and struggling with Secondary Infertility.
After my OB had me try clomid 4 times with no success, I was referred to an RE where he diagnosed me with PCOS. He told us that we would probably only get pregnant again if we used injectible medication + IUI. I was stunned because we didn’t have any problems conceiving our first child and now was told I would have to undergo very invasive and costly treatment in order to have a hope of having more children. After discussing it over, we decided to try other alternatives for 4-6 months before we jumped into the world of infertility drugs/treatment. A friend had mentioned that acupuncture can help with a plethora of things, including fertility.
I contacted Dr. Cherry’s office and decided to go through with a consult to see what he would suggest or if there was anything he could do to help. He was so warm and I really felt at ease. He was very optimistic about my situation; however, did not make any promises. He said that he would suggest acupuncture for 4-6 mo, but if I still was not pregnant to look back into the fertility treatments. I was very happy with his suggestion because it was exactly what my husband and I had agreed upon earlier. We started treatment right away, at the beginning of Aug. and I felt so relaxed and could feel my attitude AND body changing…inside and out. I had not had any kind of a cycle since the end of May and by Oct. 1st (only 2 months of seeing Dr. Cherry) I had my first period in almost 5 months. I never thought I would be so happy about that, but it was the 1st outward sign that my body was doing what it was supposed to. I felt like it was a start…but was ECSTATIC to find out it was the start of something much more…I got pregnant that 1st cycle!! We welcomed our baby girl July 12, 2011!
There are not enough kind things that I could say about Dr. Cherry, Ariele, and Val. The entire staff is so warm and you can feel how much they care and are invested in each of their patients. I looked forward to each of my visits (I am POSITIVE I have never said that about any of my doctors) and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Dr. Cherry does not only treat your specific problem, but you as a whole person. I loved my experience with Dr. Cherry and know that when we try for our 3rd child I will be excited to have Dr. Cherry by my side and helping me along the way.
