NaPro Technology (Natural Procreative Technology) focuses on finding the cause of infertility- why the body isn’t functioning as it should. Based on the techniques used in the Creighton Model System, a popular method of planning a family naturally, NaPro Technology helps a woman and her physician identify and interpret the signs her body provides.
FertilityCare Practitioners teach women how to look for and record changes in their cervical mucus, dry patterns and bleeding patterns. These changes, called biomarkers, appear naturally during the course of the menstrual cycle. Changes in mucus correspond with changing levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body. Proper charting and interpretation of these changes help physicians discover and treat underlying causes of infertility such as endrometriosis, polycystic ovarian disease, blocked fallopian tubes and hormonal disorders. Creighton Model System users use the same method of analyzing biomarkers in the menstrual cycle to achieve and avoid pregnancy and manage gynecologic health.
The other essential element in NaPro Technology is compassion. NaPro Technology is embraced by the Catholic Church as a highly effective and morally acceptable approach to infertility. Unlike many other infertility treatments, NaPro Technology allows couples to conceive naturally without more invasive intervention, respecting the dignity of the woman, the couple, and the unborn child.
