What is the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaProTECHNOLOGY?

The Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaProTECHNOLOGY is a system that helps married couples mutually value, respect, and understand their combined fertility by promoting shared responsibility and marital bonding. This natural system for planning and avoiding pregnancy views children as gifts and empowers women to manage PMS, menopause, infertility, repeat miscarriage and other health problems. It can be used for the entire continuum of a woman's reproductive life.

History of Development

On July 25, 1968, Pope Paul VI issued an encyclical letter Humanae Vitae (of Human Life). At this time, Dr. Thomas Hilgers, MD, Dip. ABOG, CFCE, CFCMC, was a senior medical student. He took Pope Paul VI's encyclical to heart and began to research the natural regulation of fertility. After several years of preparation, research officially began for the Creighton Model FertiltiyCare System on April 1, 1976. On August 6, 1978, Pope Paul VI died. On that same day, Dr. Hilgers and his wife, Susan, made a commitment to fully respond to the appeal that Humanae Vitae made to "men of science" and "physicians and health care professionals." This commitment led to the opening of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in September 1985. In 1991, the continued research of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction led to the development of NaProTECHNOLOGY, which is a new women's reproductive health science.

The Two Components of The System

  • Applicable to All Cycle Types--Regular, Irregular, Long, or Anovulatory Cycles; Breastfeeding; Premenopause; and Infertility

2. NaProTECHNOLOGY

NaProTECHNOLOGY is Natural Procreative Technology. After a women learns to chart her cycles through the Creighton Model FertilityCare System, her normal cycle patterns along with abnormalities can be identified. If abnormalities are identified, she can be referred to a NaProTECHNOLOGY trained physician to have these abnormalities diagnosed and treated.

NaProTechnology is a medical reproductive science that can help with recurrent miscarriage or infertility. It monitors a woman’s cycles and treats the causes of underlying problems. Unlike IVF or other artificial reproductive technologies (ART), it addresses the underlying issue instead of just trying to get a woman pregnant. It looks at hormone issues, endometriosis, thyroid issues, physiological abnormalities, and a host of other potential causes of infertility or miscarriage. All procedures are moral and are carried out within the guidelines of the teachings of the Catholic Church. Unlike ART, it has an 80% successful pregnancy rate. It is covered by insurance because it is treating the underlying medical conditions that are manifested by the symptom of infertility. NaProTechnology can also be used by any teenager or woman for painful cramps, abnormal bleeding, premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, postpartum depression, and many other health issues

NaProTECHNOLOGY addresses many issues including:

  • Painful Menstrual Cramps

  • Abnormal Bleeding

  • Hormonal Abnormalities

  • Frequent or Repeat Miscarriage

  • Infertility
