LINCOLN (SNR) – In observance of National FertilityCare and NaproTECHNOLOGY week March 18-24, the FertilityCare Center of the Diocese of Lincoln invites everyone to learn about FerilityCare and NaproTECHNOLOGY.
“Every woman has the right to know how her menstrual and fertility cycles function in order to understand the way her body works,” said Jennifer Svagera, B.S., F.C.P., NFP coordinator for the diocese. “Unfortunately, most women have not been provided with this information.”
The CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System (CrMS) is based upon the knowledge and understanding of the naturally-occurring phases of a woman’s fertility and infertility. CrMS relies upon the standardized observation and charting of biological markers that are essential to a woman’s gynecological and reproductive health. Now, a woman can know her cycles and use this information for the maintenance of her health.
Further, couples can use this knowledge to plan their family and build their future together.
Unlike contraceptives, CrMS treats fertility as a normal and healthy process.
“The challenge to live in harmony with one’s fertility is often one of the most exciting and meaningful aspects in the use of this system,” Svagera said. “It is a system that is firmly based in a respect for human life, human dignity, and the integrity of marriage. It is the couples who use this system and their families that benefit from this experience.
“It is a true method of family planning,” she continued “… 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.
NaProTECHNOLOGY identifies problems and cooperates with the menstrual and fertility cycles that correct conditions, maintain human ecology, and sustain procreative potential. It has many applications, including 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 and beginning of pregnancy, and postpartum depression.
