Natural Procreative Technology or NaPro is one of the great new advances in women’s healthcare. Through this technology and its base in the Creighton model cervical mucus charting system, women now have the opportunity to see into the way their bodies function and to take part in it. NaPro also allows us as medical professionals to help women monitor their fertility and fix reproductive problems (such as irregular bleeding, PMS, infertility, endometriosis, polycystic disease) all with a natural, bioidentical, low-cost approach.
The Creighton model Fertility Care system unlocks the biomarkers of fertility for women to understand. Through this method, women learn to chart their cervical mucus patterns, which gives them the ability to monitor their gynecologic health and catch problems early. Also, it can be used as a reliable method to avoid pregnancy (with rates comparable to the birth control pill) as well as to help a couple achieve pregnancy.
NaPro Technology Treats:
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Irregular or abnormal bleeding
Polycystic Ovarian Disease
