PCOS Guided Relaxation Program

One of the tools I'm utilizing in my quest to become pregnant is a guided relaxation program by Circle+Bloom called PCOS for Fertility. As you all know by now, I'm a huge fan of meditation and guided relaxation and both have helped me immensely in coping with migraine disease. So it's only natural that I'd incorporate these techniques into other aspects of my health.

The program provides an audio guided relaxation track for every other day of your cycle. Each one is designed to help you not only relax and let go, but also to imagine in your mind's eye that stage of your cycle and visualize what your body will be doing if it is working the way it's designed to.

It includes additional tracks that address the topics of insulin / the pancreas, ovary cleansing, excess androgens, weight loss and circulation.

The mp3 version of the program costs $59.99. There is a CD version available, too, which costs $10 more. I found a coupon for 30% off on a site called PCOSChallenge.com, so it only cost me around $40. Well worth it for all the content, and I've only been using it for about a week.

This combined with the yoga I already practice is a great way not only to try to prepare my body to be ready to form and sustain a pregnancy, but also to deal with the powerful, complicated emotions that come along with infertility and trying to conceive.

Lately I've been feeling what I can only describe as intense resentment toward anyone who can get pregnant just by having sex, and I can't keep feeling that way. I'm trying to keep it to myself, but I worry I might say or do something hurtful to someone else if I don't get a handle on it. I trust if I continue in these pursuits in time I will start to let go of those feelings.

Anyone else dealing with PCOS and/or infertility who can relate?
