Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System

  • Taught by practitioners who received their education and training through a program whose professional curriculum was developed at the Creighton University School of Medicine and the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction, Omaha, Nebraska.
  • Clients are taught to observe external mucus and patterns of dryness and bleeding.
  • Focuses on individual reproductive situations with medical and health emphasis.
  • Assists in the diagnosis and treatment of reproductive disorders (e.g. PMS, infertility, endometriosis, repetitive miscarriage, etc.)
  • The introductory session is a general presentation given to a small group and introduces single women and couples to the use of the system.
  • Private, individualized follow-up sessions provide personal instruction on the use of the method, as well as complete chart review. Scheduled every 2 weeks for the first two months, and then at regular intervals throughout the first year.
  • Subsequent follow-ups recommended every six to twelve months as needed.
  • The practitioner is also available for consultation between sessions, as needed


Natural Procreative Technology is a women’s health science that monitors and maintains a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health. It provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.

Thirty years of scientific research in the study of the normal and abnormal states of the menstrual and fertility cycles have unraveled their mysteries.

Real Solutions to Real Problems


Menstrual cramps

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Ovarian cysts

Irregular or abnormal bleeding

Polycystic ovarian disease

Repetitive miscarriage

Postpartum depression

Prematurity prevention

Hormonal abnormalities

Chronic discharges

Other health problems


This is the first women’s health science to network family planning with reproductive health monitoring and maintenance. It is a fertility-care based medical approach rather than a fertility-control approach to family planning and gynecological health.
