NaProTechnology in Practice

Topics include:

  • Targeted hormone assessment of the menstrual cycle
  • Sonographic classification of human ovulation disorders
  • Evaluation and treatment of premenstrual syndrome, postpartum depression, ovarian cysts, and unusual bleeding
  • Applications in infertility evaluation & treatment (and its effectiveness), osteoporosis, cancer detection, follicular and luteal phase deficiencies, and thyroid system dysfunction
  • Effects of hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian dysfunction, endometriosis, poylcystic ovarian disease, pelvic adhesive disease, amenorrhea, and anovulation
  • Perinatal applications: progesterone use during pregnancy, preventing preterm birth, evaluating and treating recurrent spontaneous abortion
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Surgical techniques for endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, uterine leiomyomata, ovarian wedge resection, and tubal occlusions

 NaProTECHNOLOGY is “a new women’s health science... [that] work[s] cooperatively with a woman’s menstrual and fertility cycles...NaProTECHNOLOGY is the first system to network family planning [using the Creighton Model FertilityCareTM System] with reproductive and gynecologic health monitoring and maintenance. Its use has applications in family planning, the evaluation and treatment of infertility and other reproductive disorders, abnormal bleeding, abnormal hormone conditions of the menstrual cycle including premenstrual syndrome and recurrent ovarian cysts, the dating of the beginning of a pregnancy, and postpartum depression...While education [of patients] is one of its foundations, NaProTECHNOLOGY also relies on developments in medical technology...(targeted hormone surveys, expert ultrasound evaluation, and various surgical approaches that utilize laser technology, microsurgical applications and anti-adhesion strategies).
