I don't see why you couldn't wear headphones. They probably would have annoyed me, but I bet it would work well for a lot of women who want something to focus on other than their uterus.

I am not saying it brings back bad memories it is just not good relaxing background music anymore. So when you pick your music be prepared not to like the music again.
