How does it work?

The Creighton Model, FertilityCareTM System teaches you to recognize the state of your fertility.

Men maintain a nearly constant hormonal pattern and are potentially fertile at all times. However, women go through an identifiable cycle of fertility and infertility. A woman’s fertile phase is signaled by changes in the cervical mucus, a discharge observable at the opening of the vagina. By observing the changes in your cervical mucus, you and your spouse can identify your fertile phases and decide to achieve or avoid pregnancy.

The Creighton Model, FertilityCareTM System has advantages over other forms of natural family planning. Because you are evaluating your own body signs and can compensate for fluctuation in your cycle, the Creighton Model is more accurate than the calendar rhythm method. Because the Creighton Model alerts you to your fertility before you ovulate, it is more useful than the basal body temperature method. The Creighton Model is more than 96% effective at avoiding pregnancy.

You’ll also discover other benefits from using the method. Learning your body’s normal signs will help you immediately spot any abnormalities in your reproductive system. Couples facing infertility have an increased rate of pregnancy through the use of the Creighton Model and cooperative medical treatment.

Because the Creighton Model, FertilityCareTM System depends on close cooperation between you and your spouse, you will grow in understanding and love for each other. Your ability to share decision and your responsibility for each other will enrich every area of your life.
