Creighton Model

Creighton Model FertilityCare System

Women observe the external mucus that is produced when estrogen alerts them to approaching ovulation. When progesterone is high, cervical crypts produce a thick mucus that is very difficult for sperm to penetrate and usually is not visibly externally. The standardization of this model has expanded its use to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of many gynecologic conditions, including PMS, endometriosis, infertility, polycystic ovarian disease, etc. Learning takes place through series of private follow-ups by a FertilityCare Practitioner after a group or individual introductory session is attended. Group or individual introductory sessions, and individual instruction are available throughout Metro Detroit.

NaProTECHNOLOGY for Women and Infertility

The Creighton Model has other applications in addition to avoiding a pregnancy or spacing children. For example, couples who struggle with infertility have been successful in achieving pregnancies even after artificial reproductive technologies were recommended elsewhere and have failed them. Women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, migraine headaches and other reproductive health problems also have been helped.
