Understanding The Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaProTECHNOLOGY
Many women are unaware of the inner workings of their cycles and times of fertility and infertility. We believe every woman has the right to understand her body and how it works.
After 30 years of research, the Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrMS) and NaProTECHNOLOGY dispel the mystery of a woman’s cycle by empowering the couple to be in control of their fertility on a month-to-month basis.
The CrMS is a standardized observation technique that utilizes the charting of a woman’s biological markers to indicate when they are naturally fertile and infertile, allowing them to effectively use the model either to achieve or avoid pregnancy.
The bonus of using this method of natural family planning is that it is the basis for NaProTECHNOLOGY, a new women’s health science. Together, the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaProTECHNOLOGY help bring couples closer together by helping them understand fertility and strengthening marriages.
