I have struggled with unexplained infertility for the last 16 months. I had a perpetually thin lining and scarring in my uterus that was so bad it required two surgeries to remove. It felt like one step forward, two steps back every month of trying to get pregnant. I was listening to the Natural Cycle meditations when I went for acupuncture, but felt buying the package for home wasn’t worth the money.
My husband and I did one round of IUI, which was unsuccessful. As we were gearing up for our second try at IUI, I decided to make the investment and purchase the IUI meditation package. While I still felt stressed during that IUI cycle – let’s be honest, the meditations aren’t magically going to make that disappear 😉 – for the first time since beginning my fertility journey, I felt like I had something to look forward to each day and something that I could control. The visualizations always helped me calm down and picture what was happening in my body. And the IUI procedure day meditation kept me company while I laid down afterward!
I am writing this after getting a positive pregnancy test last week! And while I can’t say the meditations were the golden ticket, it was really the only thing I changed between IUI cycle 1 and 2, so I give it quite a bit of credit.
If you’re debating the price point, don’t. One blood draw or round of fertility medication costs more and doesn’t come with the benefits of calming your brain! I found this to be very worth the investment!
