Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrMS)
The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) is a mucus-only method. It relies upon standardized observation and charting of biological markers (or “biomarkers”) that are essential to a woman’s health and fertility. The biomarkers are indicators of natural fertile and infertile times, and thus couples can use the system either to achieve or to avoid pregnancy. Biomarkers can also indicate abnormalities in a woman’s health.
The CrMS is also the basis for the new women’s health science, NaProTECHNOLOGY (natural procreative technology). Using a woman’s charts, CrMS Medical Consultants, who are trained in NaProTECHNOLOGY, can monitor and maintain a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health with medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.
Registering for Classes: CrMS is taught by professionally trained Practitioners. Classes are scheduled on a one-on-one basis. For a listing of our mid-Missouri CrMS Practitioners, visit our NFP Providers page. For a nationwide listing, visit www.fertilitycare.org.
Class Fee: Learning the Creighton Model System requires attending an Introductory Session and a minimum of 8 follow-up sessions over a year’s time. Class fees vary by practitioner, but average $40/class. The fee covers all essential learning and charting materials. The introductory session may take up to an hour and a half. Postpartum and premenopause classes are also available.
Free Introductory Class: Local Creighton practitioners are willing to offer their introductory class free of charge for those who would like to learn more about NFP without the cost and commitment of an entire course. Those who would like to take advantage of this unique opportunity should contact the Creighton practitioner.
