NaProTechnology: A Medical Breakthrough in Infertility Treatment

By David Picella

NaProTechnology is a new reproductive science uses the physician's medical and surgical energies in a way that works cooperatively with a woman's natural reproductive function. Created at the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in Omaha, Nebraska, it is touted as a revolutionary breakthrough for helping couples who desire to achieve a pregnancy naturally. This article is a review of information from a new DVD called New Hope For Infertility With NaProTechnology, that does an excellent job of presenting some simple facts about the differences between NaProTechnology and the Artificial Reproductive Techniques (ART) that are currently in widespread (e.g., In Vitro Fertilization [IVF]) use. NaProTechnology is not just an alternative for couples who object to ART for moral reasons, but rather, it should be considered the rational choice anyone who is in serious need of medical and possibly even surgical attention for a real medical problem affecting reproduction.

Best of all, because the focus of NaProTechnology is diagnosis and treatment, it avoids the need for conception to occur by any means other than the natural way It goes without saying that once a medical problem has been diagnosed and treated, this has important health benefits that can be realized during the pregnancy and well beyond. For the same reasons, women who get pregnant as a result of NaProTechnology are frequently able get pregnant again.

Here is a summary of what is presented:

Artificial Reproductive Technology: (a) ignores the underlying causes of infertility; (b) is associated with a multiple pregnancy rate of 35.4% (CDC Data); (c) is more than twice as likely to result in a child with a major birth defect: 9% versus 4.2% (New England Journal of Medicine); (d) recent studies suggest that ART may also be associated with higher rates of low birth weight infants, cancer, and even developmental issues; (e) ART sometimes requires "selective reduction, which involves selectively "reducing (i.e., killing) additional babies in the womb when there are too many.

NaProTechnology and The Creighton Model System The Creighton Model System is a standardized gynecologic charting system that is an integral part of NaProTechnology. Without the Creighton Model System, the physician who practices NaProTechnology would have inadequate information for the diagnosis and treatment of reproductive problems. Usually, a couple would start this program by learning how to chart the menstrual cycle according to the Creighton Model system. A medical consultation with a physician who is trained in NaProTechnology can be conducted at the same time. Frequently, the evaluation of infertility will include a targeted hormone evaluation of the menstrual cycle and an ultrasound series to evaluate ovarian function (this cannot be done without the Creighton Model System). A surgical evaluation is sometimes needed as part of a complete investigation.

The bottom line is that these techniques result in a "functional and/or "structural diagnosis that can then be addressed medically or surgically and the end result is natural conception.

Unfortunately, because of ART, we are led to believe that there is a "quick fix for infertility. In reality, ART, doesn't address the cause of infertility at all and does nothing to correct medical problems that might also affect the outcome of a pregnancy. Even worse, the conceptual, perinatal, and developmental implications and dangers associated with conception in a laboratory, it seems, are only now becoming appreciated.

According the Pope Paul VI Institute, NaProTechnology success rates are 1.5 to 3 times better than IVF (23.5% versus 38.4%-81.8%).
