The Creighton Model FertilityCare System is a method of fertility awareness that can be used by married couples to avoid or achieve pregnancy and by any woman, married or single, to monitor her gynecological health. 

As a woman learns to chart her cycle using the Creighton Model, NaPro Technology (Natural Procreative Technology), provides treatments to address gynecological issues and the underlying causes of infertility.  The Creighton Model FertilityCare System can be used to promote health before, during and after pregnancy, while breastfeeding, and in the time leading up to menopause.

 It assists women in learning the signs their bodies give of the natural changes occurring throughout the menstrual cycle. In addition, it allows specially-trained medical professionals to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of conditions such as ovarian cysts, unusual bleeding, painful periods, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage and infertility. As a Catholic health care system, we believe in offering alternatives to contraception and artificial reproductive technologies that are safe, effective and consistent with our commitment to celebrating the gift of life.
