The Creighton Model & NaProTECHNOLOGY™
The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System is a modern, precise and effective system of family planning that can be used by couples either to achieve or avoid pregnancy. It is based upon knowledge and understanding of women's naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility. Women learning to use the system are taught to routinely observe natural bio-markers, such as the presence or absence of cervical mucus, and how to chart these observations using a standardized recording system. Couples learn to recognize patterns that indicate times of fertility and infertility that help them make informed, choices regarding the achievement or avoidance of pregnancy.
Through daily observation and charting of natural bio-markers, a woman may see the effects of stress, medications, diet and exercise on her fertility. Together with NaProTECHNOLOGY™, the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System can help diagnose and treat gynecological problems including infertility, recurrent miscarriage, PMS, endometriosis, irregular cycles, ovarian cysts and hormonal issues, to name just a few.
