NaPro Technology

What is NaPro Technology? An introduction from this link:

"The Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction was founded in 1985 to answer the call for reproductive health care that fully respects life. The challenges in Pope Paul VI's 1968 letter Humanae Vitae prompted Thomas W. Hilgers, MD, to begin scientific research in the applications of natural fertility regulation and to open the Pope Paul VI Institute in order to build a culture of life in women's health care throughout the world. The Institute has developed a new approach to women's health care that embodies the best principles of medicine and offers superior treatments to women and challenges mainstream medicine, which relies on contraception, in vitro fertilization, and abortion."

Real Problems … Real Solutions — Pope Paul VI Institute

The Institute networked a natural system of fertility regulation — the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) — with a women's health science — NaProTechnology. These provide effective, morally acceptable, and sexually healthy options for women and couples. The CrMS and NaProTechnology enable couples to reconnect love and life in the area of fertility regulation and in reproductive and gynecologic health.

Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System A natural fertility tracking that generates standardized information about women's reproductive health and enables couples to achieve or avoid pregnancy effectively. It is the only system that can be used with NaProTechnology to help diagnose and treat reproductive health problems.

NaProTechnology — (natural procreative technology) A new women's health science that uses the Creighton Model System to help a woman reach her optimal state of reproductive health. Its medical and surgical approaches, developed over decades of research and now emerging in peer-reviewed medical literature achieve real solutions to problems such as infertility, problem periods, pelvic pain, miscarriage, and postpartum depression. In the summer of 2004, a major medical textbook, "The Medical & Surgical Practice of NaProTechnology", authored by Dr. Hilgers, was published. This textbook is a compilation of almost 30 years of dedicated research and provides a strong professional case for doctors and medical schools. In 2010, a book for the general public, The NaProTechnology Revolution: Unleashing the Power in a Woman's Cycle, was published and is available for purchase.

Dr. Hilgers often appears on EWTN.
