FertilityCare Center of the Upper Ohio Valley, Inc. - Offering wholeness, hope, and healing for women and couples
The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) is more than just a method of Natural Family Planning. It is a true fertility care system which can be used throughout a woman's entire procreative life!
The CrMS is a standardized modification of the Billings Ovulation Method and is the basis of NaProTechnology®, the new women's health science.
The CrMS relies upon the standardized observation and charting of biological markers that are essential to a woman's health and fertility. These "biomarkers" tell the couple when they are naturally fertile and infertile. The couple can then use this knowledge either to achieve or to avoid pregnancy. These biomarkers can also indicate abnormalities in a woman's health.
