NaProTechnology at the Specialist Medical Clinic

NaProTechnology General Practitioner Dr Monique Risso is offering NaProTechnology at the Specialist Medical Clinic.

Natural Procreative Technology, (also called NaProTECHNOLOGY®, NaPro, or NPT) is a new reproductive science that works cooperatively with the natural fertility cycle (menstrual cycle).   It has been developed as a series of medical applications based on a standardized assessment of the biomarkers of the menstrual cycle, known as the Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CRMS). It can be used to evaluate and treat infertility, miscarriage, irregular bleeding, and many other women's health conditions. 

Thirty years of scientific research in the study of the normal and abnormal states of the fertility cycles have unravelled their mysteries.  NaProTechnology Doctor’s seek out the cause of infertility in their patients and look to restore their bodies to a healthy state, where natural conception can take place.  When fertility is restored to its optimum function, conception can occur anywhere from the first to the twelfth effective cycle of treatment.  On average couples complete fertility evaluation and treatment between 18 to 24 months after the initial medical consultation, or sooner if conception occurs.  Furthermore, couples that are at increased risk of miscarriage can usually be identified and treated even before they have their first pregnancy loss.

In the CrMS, fertility is observed as a part of health, not disease. It is a system that is specifically not a natural contraceptive. Rather, it is a true method of family planning . . . a method that can be used in two ways, to achieve, as well as, avoid pregnancy. These principles make this system distinctly different from contraception, artificial or natural.

It is based upon a couple’s knowledge and understanding of their naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility. Through this understanding, the couple is able to make decisions regarding the achievement or avoidance of pregnancy. This system provides women the ability to monitor and maintain their procreative and gynaecologic health over a lifetime. It is truly the only family planning system which has networked family planning with gynaecologic and procreative healthcare and health maintenance.

The CRMS is more than a method of Natural Family Planning. With this system, women, from their very first period (menarche), can learn how to track their fertility. Fertility awareness gives women essential information about their general health.  Menstrual cycle problems can easily be detected and treated in good time.  These problems would otherwise be overlooked and could be a cause of infertility later in the woman’s life, by which time it could be a greater challenge to treat. 

In a similar way the CRMS and NaProTechnology can help manage and treat the peri-menopausal era of a woman’s life, thus offering women empowerment of their body’s language, and treatment when required, from menarche to menopause, throughout their entire reproductive life.
