NaPro Technology

NaPro Technology is a new women’s science that uses the Creighton Model of natural family planning in order to diagnose and treat disease.

A New Women’s Science

NaPro technology is a new women’s science that uses the Creighton Model of natural family planning in order to diagnose and treat disease. Charting via the Creighton Model is the fist step in identifying the underlying reason(s) for the woman’s illness. The NaPro Medical Consultant uses the charting to determine the work-up necessary in order to diagnose and treat. NaPro technology has been used to help women suffering from infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, polycystic ovarian syndrome and postpartum depression.

Dr. Hilgers and the Creighton Model

NaPro technology was discovered by Dr. Thomas Hilgers. While working at the St. Louis University and Creighton University Schools of Medicine, Hilgers and his coworkers developed the Creighton Model FertilityCare System. Thirty years of scientific research in the study of the normal and abnormal states of the menstrual and fertility cycles unraveled their mysteries.

In 2004, Dr. Hilgers published the definitive textbook on natural procreative technology, The Medical and Surgical Practice of NaProTECHNOLOGY. Dr. Hilgers is currently a senior medical consultant in obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive medicine and surgery at the Pope Paul VI Institute. He is a clinical professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, Nebraska.

Patient Testimony

Suzie, Natural Fertility Care Patient, Ascension Saint Agnes in Baltimore, Maryland. “I wish I had learned about NaProTechology years ago! My charts were never “typical.” I seemed to ovulate late and then soon after begin to menstruate. My husband and I started charting using the Creighton Method. Dr. Sorra confirmed my hormone imbalance through a series of blood tests and began treatment using shots of natural progesterone. My chart and my symptoms began to change within the very first cycle. The feelings of moodiness, irritability, anger, and depression that I had endured for years finally lifted. My insomnia stopped.

Now as I enter perimenopause and my cycle is changing again, I am much more aware of my body changes because of the Creighton Method. I believe NaProTechnology and progesterone support are helping me to smooth my transition into menopause symptom-free.”

Kristen, Natural Fertility Care Patient, Ascension Saint Agnes in Baltimore, Maryland. “After being told from well-known fertility clinics that doing fertility treatments wouldn’t be worth their time or my money, a friend introduced me to NaPro technology. I was skeptical but wanted to learn more about it so I contacted a teacher, Julie Tomko. While I was learning the system, I enjoyed discovering more about how my body worked and felt secure and uplifted by Julie. After meeting with Dr. Sorra and determining a course of action, I was pregnant the following cycle and now have a beautiful, healthy daughter! It pays to understand your body, to have faith in God’s design, and to have a physician that believes that anything is possible. Dr. Sorra and NaPro technology gave me the tools to read the signals my body was already saying, brought me closer to my husband, and best of all – gave me hope.”
