Specialized Medical Consultants work to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of infertility using the science of NaProTECHNOLOGY and can achieve up to an 80% success rate, depending on the medical condition. They work in parallel with you and your FertilityCare Practitioner, who will guide you in navigating your charting of the Creighton Model FertilityCare System.
A couple would be classigied as experiencing infertility if they have had no pregnancies after 12 months, or have experienced multiple miscarriages. For couples who have been trying for less than 12 months, St. Marguerite Bourgeoys FertilityCare Toronto will still work with you to identify any fertility concerns through the charting of the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and send a referral to a Medical Consultant if any biomarkers are found.
The one year FertilityCare Program includes:
- A private introductory session on the Creighton Model FertilityCare System
- Charting starter kit including charts, stamps, and user manual
- 8 private follow-up sessions with a FertilityCare Practitioner to ensure accurate observations and charting
- Referral to a NaProTECHNOLOGY Medical Consultant, if required
Additional sessions with your Pracitioner beyond the first year are provided as needed.
What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal imbalance that causes the ovaries to malfunction and is the most common hormonal disorder in women. The classic signs are a long or irregular cycle.
What is endometriosis?
This is a condition where cells from within the uterus move and implant themselves in other locations. When the cells take up their new location they continue to be hormonally responsive. Some women experience no symptoms; others suffer severe menstrual cramps and painful intercourse. This condition is often associated with infertility.
What are pelvic adhesions?
Pelvic adhesions are a type of scar tissue, which can form as a result of a number of insults to the pelvic organs. Common causes of pelvic adhesions include endometriosis and pelvic infection. In addition to these, any surgery on the pelvic organs has an associated risk of adhesion formation. These adhesions can be the cause of severe pelvic pain, although most of the time women with this problem have no symptoms. It can also be related to infertility by obstructing the fallopian tubes or impairing their function.
What are uterine fibroids?
Uterine fibroids develop from the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus. These benign growths often appear during child-bearing years and can interfere with normal menstrual function creating a situation of excessively heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia). The fibroids can develop in positions that can affect the normal functioning of the uterus and fallopian tubes.
