The Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrMS) is an effective, natural method of family planning for both achieving and avoiding pregnancy. By using the system, a woman learns how to understand her body and its cycles by observing biological signs (“biomarkers”) from her own body. Together the couple grows in knowledge and understanding of their naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility. Using this information the couple is then able to make decisions regarding the achievement or avoidance of pregnancy. 

Because it focuses on biomarkers from the woman’s own body, the system works well for women in all stages of their reproductive lives, including those with regular or irregular cycles, those who are breastfeeding, stopping hormonal contraception or experiencing peri-menopausal changes.  As a prospective system, the CrMS identifies days of fertility and infertility as they occur regardless of the regularity of a woman’s cycle.

By tailoring instructions to your needs, the system is highly effective for both avoiding and achieving pregnancy. The information obtained from monitoring a woman’s biomarkers also allows for a greater understanding of her reproductive health.  When used to avoid pregnancy the CrMS has a method effectiveness (perfect use) of 99.5% and a use effectiveness (typical use) of 96.8% effective to avoid pregnancy (Journal of Reporductive Medicine, June 1998).

THE PROCESS

Learning the Creighton Model System involves attending a 90-minute Introductory Session and a series of follow-up teaching sessions.  The reason for this structured teaching schedule is so that the system may be tailored for use by each individual or couple, allowing for the best possible personalized instruction.  Attending the series of follow-up teaching sessions with a trained FertilityCare Practitioner, is essential for maximum effectiveness so that the woman/couple may quickly develop confidence and proficiency in their use of the system for their intentions.
