I’m 23 years old and last January I was diagnosed with PCOS after trying to get pregnant for about six months. Being so young I never thought I’d have any issues getting pregnant. I tried clomid for about four months and then three IUI’s before taking a little break. When I switched jobs and my insurance changed it no longer covered any fertility treatments, so I looked for other alternatives. When I found out about the CNY Fertility & CNY Healing Arts Spa in Latham I was very interested. I worked with Rebecca for acupuncture (also a herbal tea and diet) and Kristen for massage. I also did about three sessions of yoga. Everyone is so nice and make every visit extremely comfortable. I started going this past March and by the end of May I found out I was pregnant. So far my pregnancy has been so normal I almost feel this isn’t normal. (haha) I still go see Kristen for a monthly massage and went to see Rebecca up to about week eight. I always feel so relaxed and refreshed after visiting. I feel extremely fortunate for my experience, and even though I was scared that it took me two years to get pregnant, now I feel so much hope and excitement. Not only for me and my husband if we decide to have another child, but it is exciting for others who share similar situations. Everyday was a learning experience not only in fertility but just how important taking care of your body is. Thank you so much.

    Hi Melissa,

    Thank you so much for sharing your journey. It is inspiring as I have PCOS also and have done two failed IUIs with clomid. I was wondering what herbal tea were you using? I have done acupuncture once and have another appointment scheduled. I know everyone is different but how many times a week were you doing acupuncture and massage? I would really appreciate your feedback. Congrats!!
