refers to Natural Procreative Technology, an approach to understanding women’s reproductive health and regulating fertility by identifying and treating the underlying causes of problems—not simply placing a Band-Aid on them. Instead of treating symptoms, NaProTECHNOLOGY uses natural methods and restorative surgery to treat diseases. It also pairs with the Creighton Model FertilityCare
™ System, which actively engages a woman to track and manage her fertility.
This scientific approach empowers a woman to be a key part of her care team and has been successful in treating a host of issues including:
- Menstrual pain
- Ovarian cysts
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Repetitive miscarriage
- Postpartum depression
- Hormonal abnormalities
- Bleeding disorders
- Chronic discharges
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Premature birth
Developed by Dr. Thomas Hilgers, the founder and director of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in Omaha, Nebraska, NaProTECHNOLOGY treats conditions cooperatively with the menstrual cycle and avoids the use of artificial hormones and devices to regulate fertility or control symptoms.
NaProTECHNOLOGY’s restorative approach to infertility costs less than IVF treatments and has proven highly successful in helping couples achieve healthy pregnancies.
