The Creighton Model System
The Creighton Model FertilityCare System is a scientifically developed and standardized system to assist women and couples in understanding their fertility cycles, with medical support for abnormalities. This system gives a woman highly reliable information about:
- When she is ovulating
- When she is able to conceive and when she is infertile during her cycle
- Whether her reproductive system is functioning normally
- Early warnings of reproductive or gynecologic health problems
The Creighton Model System empowers a woman with the knowledge to enhance her health and the health of her family. It is a cost-effective medical tool to help evaluate and treat infertility and gynecologic health problems. It is also highly effective for avoiding pregnancy without medical side effects. Women of all reproductive categories can benefit from its use.
As a system of family planning, the CrMS can be used to both achieve and avoid pregnancy. As published in the June 1998 issue of the Journal of Reproductive Medicine, when using the system to avoid pregnancy, it has a method effectiveness (perfect use) rate of 99.5% and a use effectiveness (typical use) rate of 96.8%. On the other hand, when used to achieve pregnancy in couples of normal fertility, the effectiveness is 76% in the first cycle of use and 98% by the sixth cycle.
