About the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System

The FertilityCare Center at St. Gianna Clinic offers instruction in the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System, a natural and procreative way for women to take charge of their health.

How it works

The CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System uses a standardized tool for charting based on observing and tracking the physical signs a woman has when she is fertile. It can be used throughout a woman’s life to identify fertile and infertile days in her cycle, as well as key indicators of her hormonal function and health, with no side effects.

This system is for anyone seeking a natural option that works cooperatively with her body. The method encourages communication, respect and understanding between couples. In fact, couples using this method have a less than 2% divorce rate compared to the national rate of more than 50%. It is very versatile and can be used in a variety of situations:
  • Short, long or irregular length menstrual cycles
  • Breastfeeding women
  • Postpartum women
  • Continuous discharge
  • Achieving pregnancy
  • Avoiding pregnancy
  • And more!

The charting tool collects information to recognize, diagnose and accurately treat women’s health problems during any stage of her life. Treatments can then be prescribed based on an understanding of what is actually occurring in the woman’s cycle. When treatment is combined with NaProTECHNOLOGY, numerous medical conditions can be addressed.
Affiliated with the FertilityCare Center at St. Gianna Clinic to provide ongoing care is Dr. Melissa Weidert, an obstetrician and gynecologist who is fellowship trained in medical and surgical NaProTECHNOLOGY.
