My husband and I struggled with infertility for over three years – I had very irregular cycles and he had a low sperm count. We went to six different doctors (2 OBGYNs, 2 Reproductive Endocrinologists, and 2 Urologists). They all said that there wasn’t anything we could do to improve our fertility, but they were all eager to discuss next steps with us – hormones, varicocele surgery (which my husband didn’t even have!), IUI, IVF, you name it. We didn’t feel ready to proceed with next steps, so we figured that we were young and could make these decisions later down the road.
To our amazement, we unexpectedly got pregnant on our own last Spring. Sadly, that pregnancy ended in miscarriage. It was a devastating experience for us. We looked into acupuncture as a means of healing. We felt like we were finally doing something to achieve our goal of becoming parents, and if we ultimately needed to use infertility treatments, we’d at least be in a healthier place when we were ready. We both began seeing Charlotte Sobeck on a weekly basis. Charlotte was always comforting and compassionate, and allowed me to work through my grief and anxiety. She was always positive and confident in her ability to help us, and I am so appreciative of that.
With Charlotte’s guidance, my husband and I received weekly acupuncture treatments, took the prescribed herbs, improved our diets, and exercised regularly. Four months into our program, I was having regular cycles for the first time in my life & my husband’s latest sperm analysis came back normal. Less than two days after we got his results, I found out I was pregnant again! I have continued to see Charlotte throughout my pregnancy, and I look forward to each appointment. Acupuncture’s benefits are awesome – I don’t think I’ve been stressed out since I started seeing Charlotte almost a year ago.
All in all, my experience with Charlotte and Eastern Medicine has entirely changed my perspective on how to take care of my own health and well being.
