How do I get started?

There is a bit of a learning curve when you start to chart, and we don't want you to go it alone.
Before you do anything else, attend one of our intro sessions in English or in Spanish. Public intro sessions are completely free and are the best way to find out what Creighton is all about.
Due to covid-19 all introductory sessions and followups are now virtual!
If the next public intro doesn't work for your schedule, please contact one of our practitioners about an individual session. From there, we can get you started charting and schedule follow up appointments!

Statistics for the Creighton Model

Avoiding or achieving, the odds are better here.

How does Creighton compare to Birth Control or IVF?

NaProTechnology is nearly 3 times more sucessful than IVF for assisting infertile couples and does not result in early abortions or frozen embryos.

NaPro's Prematurity Prevention Program has cut the rate of premature births from 12.1% to 7%. Preterm birth is associated with numberous medical side effects for the baby.

Modern reproductive technology works to overcome the mestrual and fertility cycle by either suppressing or destroying them. NaProTechnology works cooperatively with the menstrual and fertility cycles, respecting the dignity of women and marriage. Current reproductive medicine uses a "band-aid" approach of prescribing birth control for any gynelogical or reproductive health issue. NaProTechnology looks for the underlying causes of women's health issues, providing diagnosis and treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know it can be scary to try new things. Here are a few questions we are often asked.

How does this system even work? Everyone says the rhythm method is ineffective.


Creighton Model System is NOT the rhythm method. It uses a prospective accumulation of objective and standardized data on the menstrual and fertility cycles. This system is based on the observation and tracking of physical signs a woman has when she if fertile. The couple then uses this information to plan or avoid a pregnancy by knowing whether each day is fertile or infertile. The system has a 99.6% degree of effectiveness to avoid pregnancy and a very high degree of accuracy in achieving pregnancy.


I have irregular cycles. Will Creighton work for me?


Yes! Everybodys body is different, but irregular cycles are often a symptom of underlying medical issues. Birth control pills mask the symptoms, but Creighton gets to the heart of the issues, in a natural and healthy way.


Won't this ruin my sex life? What about spontaneity?


Couples using CrMS report an increase in communication and a growth in the Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Communicative, and Emotional (SPICE) dimensions of their sexuality and relationship. It is true that using CrMS to avoid pregnancy requires periodic abstinence. However, times of abstinence are present and normal in every marriage, with or without contraceptive use. Couples often must abstain due to illness, travel schedules, pregnancy etc. During these times, CrMS allows couples to become more generous, attentive, respectful and loving to one another. As the couple grows in confidence and proficiency with CrMS, ovulation becomes easier to predict, and there are more opportunities for spontaneity.


Can I download charting material from this site?


No. Creighton is a highly standardized system. We want to make sure that you are comfortable charting and doing it correctly. If you need new charts or stamps, contact your practitioner and they will be happy to get you new material.


Is there an app for charting?


Yes! Once you have completed five follow-up sessions with your practitioner you will have access to the official Creighton app. Paper charts are the easiest way to start charging consistently so we start there first.
