Understanding NaProTECHNOLOGY

Looking beyond symptoms and approaching the real causes with healthier, natural methods. It's time we treat the causes of infertility. Dr. Kathryn A. Karges is an obstetrician and gynecologist at CHI St. Luke’s Caritas Women’s Care in Sugar Land, Texas. She treats a variety of women’s health conditions and provides both routine and high-risk obstetrical care. She especially enjoys working with couples who seek to utilize a natural approach to managing fertility and health.

NaProTECHNOLOGY refers to Natural Procreative Technology and was developed by Dr. Thomas Hilgers, the founder and director of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in Omaha, Nebraska. It is 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 Fertility Care™ 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

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.
