What is NaPro Technology?
NaPro (“Natural Procreative”) Technology is a branch of reproductive health medicine that developed from the Creighton Model™ founders studying thousands of women’s CrMS charts. The abnormal patterns often seen on the charts motivated them to pursue treating women medically and, eventually, surgically for reproductive and gynecologic health concerns. NaPro Technology is now practiced by medical professionals, including doctors and nurse practitioners, called Medical Consultants, who are trained to read unusual patterns in CrMS charts, order diagnostic tests – including bloodwork, ultrasound imaging, and others as necessary – to determine your specific diagnosis.
cysts can cause pelvic pain and irregular cycles; hormonal abnormalities can cause PMS symptoms, repetitive miscarriage, and irregular bleeding; PCOD can cause irregular cycles and infertility; cervical inflammation can cause chronic discharges; endometriosis can cause severe menstrual cramps and also infertility. NaPro Technology diagnoses all of these conditions, and many more, and then it provides you with treatment options which heal your gynecologic system and assist your fertility to optimally function. Medical Consultants can prescribe hCG and bioidentical (meaning it’s not the synthetic stuff found in the pill) progesterone supplementation, as well as other medical interventions, and some Medical Consultants can also perform surgical procedures that can remove endometriosis or pelvic adhesions, restore polycystic ovaries to normal function, and more. Different applications of NaPro TECHNOLOGY can also help treat postpartum depression and prevent premature birth.
NaPro Technology diagnostics can determine if you have ovarian cysts, hormonal abnormalities, polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD), endometriosis, and many other conditions. Such conditions can cause a wealth of symptoms. For example, ovarian
How successful is NaPro Technology?
When treating Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), NaPro has a 95% success rate.
When treating postpartum depression, NaPro also has a 95% success rate.
When helping infertile couples conceive, NaPro is nearly 3 times more successful than IVF and does not result in early abortions or frozen embryos.
How can I get started with NaPro Technology?
Most of the time your Medical Consultant will ask you to first start charting with the Creighton Model™ so that he or she can look at a record of what your body has been doing for the past few cycles. If you’re interested in learning the Creighton Model™, sign up for a free Introductory Session!
