Natural Fertility Matters

Natural family planning, infertility treatment & women’s health services

Family Planning

All our client couples who use the Creighton Model FertiltyCare system learn how to track their natural menstrual cycles and how to achieve or avoid pregnancy naturally. These are the two sides of the same coin.

The model’s track record is excellent:

96.8% of couples with normal fertility successfully avoid pregnancy.

This is the use effectiveness measure, which includes inconsistent use and human errors*

98% of couples with normal fertility achieve pregnancy within 6 effective cycles**.

My husband and I first came to learn this model because we wanted to get pregnant quickly (we had not met until we were in our mid thirties). We were impressed with this model’s track record in achieving pregnancy. And indeed even with my irregular cycles we conceived in fewer than 6 effective cycles of trying.

“…even with my irregular cycles we conceived in fewer than 6 effective cycles of trying.”

After our first child was born we decided to space out a bit before we tried again. So we used the model to help us avoid pregnancy because we wanted to use a method that is natural. Initially I was breastfeeding but it wasn’t difficult to learn where my infertility and fertility windows were. In time my cycles returned to normal, in fact regular, and we continued to use the system until we were ready to try for another child.

.”.. it wasn’t difficult to learn where my infertility and fertility windows were.”

The model is also suitable for any couples throughout their gynaecological life, including those women who have come off the pill, those who are annovulatory (no ovulation) or are over 40’s.

If a couple with unknown infertility have not managed to achieve pregnancy after 6 effective cycles on the FertilityCare system then we will refer them to our sister programme, NaproTECHNOLOGY, for further investigation.
