Are you struggling with a reproductive issue - endometriosis, PCOS, hormone imbalance, miscarriage or infertility?  Have you heard about NaPro and wondered how a NaPro doctor can help you and how your experience with them might be different?  

Think of a NaPro doctor as your partner in restoring and maintaining optimal reproductive health and fertility.

What makes a NaPro doctor your partner?  You work as a team to get to identify and treat root cause reproductive issues.  NaPro doctors rely on you to share critical information through:

  • Your Creighton Model Chart
  • Other signs and symptoms (menstrual pain, PMS, low libido, fatigue, etc.)

What do NaPro doctors restore?  A number of things, including, but not limited to:

  • Hormone balance
  • Ovulation
  • Health of uterine lining

How do NaPro doctors maintain health & function?  They are committed to "first, do no harm."  What is unique about their approach?

  • They avoid contraceptives, which can cause hormone imbalance or put the integrity of the reproductive organs at risk of puncture 
  • They do not administer synthetic hormones, but rather bio identical 
  • They are cautious with medications, starting with extra low dosages and closely monitoring their effectiveness and impact on overall fertility
  • They encourage you to be proactive and continue to chart; you are actively involved in monitoring your reproductive health 

How does a NaPro doctor's evaluation seek to optimize function?  NaPro doctors ask different questions than typical doctors.  For example:

  • Is the woman ovulating (non-NaPro) vs. Is ovulation normal?  Or is there a defect in ovulation? (NaPro)
  • Is progesterone high enough on chart day 21? (non-NaPro)  vs.  Does progesterone remain at an optimal level throughout the post peak (or luteal phase)?  Is there adequate time for successful implantation before the progesterone drops off? (NaPro)
  • Are there obvious signs of endometriosis? (non-NaPro) vs.  Can we fully evaluate the presence or absences of and endometriosis?  If found, can we remove it in the most effective manner while reducing the chances of scare tissue? (NaPro)
