NaProTECHNOLOGY is designed to help women and couples that have reproductive and gynecological issues. NaPro Technology stands for Natural Procreative technology and uses Creighton Model Fertility Care system to assist a woman in better understanding her cycle. By using this model we are able to evaluate, diagnose and treat underlying problems like fertility, PMS, ovarian cysts, repetitive miscarriages, postpartum depression, hormonal abnormalities, ovarian cysts, and many more.
We know that NaPro uses health markers from a woman tracking her cycles each month. How does this tracking and these markers lead to higher pregnancy successes?
NaproTECHNOLOGY uses Creighton Model FertilityCare System. This system using the natural biological marker of cervical mucus to determine days of fertility. When days of fertility are used for intercourse a couple's chances of pregnancy increases. When a couple has normal fertility and uses days of fertility based on Creighton they have a >90% chance of conceiving in the first 6months. When a couple struggles with infertility whether that is related to irregular cycles/long cycles/low sperm/etc. when days of fertility can be identified more accurately "fertility-focused" intercourse can be used and in turn pregnancy rates increase.
Can you describe the issues uncovered in the tracking that helps you identify further issues that need to be corrected to achieve pregnancy?
When we have a female track her cycle we can break it down like we would do an EKG. We look at the length (is the cycle long or irregular from month to month). We look at the bleeding itself (is there spotting in the middle, tail end brown bleeding after the period, premenstrual spotting, other abnormal bleeding, heavy menses). We can determine ovulation +/- 2 days to 95% confidence level based on looking at the mucus cycle. We can look at the phase after ovulation both with length and lab findings to determine if a follicle is healthy and in turn work on optimizing follicular growth and development.
How do you correct those issues that you find?
Depending on the problem we target our treatment to correct the problem. If we believe the follicle needs assistance then we can add some ovulation induction medication. If the mucus cycle is poor we add mucus enhancers. If we feel that the hormones after ovulation are suboptimal then we assist with hormonal support by using progesterone or HCG therapy. If there is concerns about chronic endometritis we treat with antibiotics. If we think there are issues with inflammation we can even use low dose naltrexone. We have some many options if we actually sit down and listen to what the female cycle is trying to tell us and then tailor our treatment accordingly.
Is there a type of woman/family that is a better fit for NaPro? How do you determine if a family is a good fit?
Teenage girls that are
struggling with painful periods
Young girls/women with PCOS
Any female struggling with PMD or moms that are struggling with postpartum depression.
Any female that wants to embrace their feminine side naturally and work with their body.
Any female that wants to learn more about their cycle and how it works would benefit from charting using Creighton Model FertilityCare System.
Couples that are struggling with infertility or recurrent miscarriages.
The list is really endless
