Our Beginning

Researching at these two universities, Dr Hilgers and his co-workers developed the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and new women’s health science, NaProTechnology (Natural Procreative Technology). Today we have over 40 years of solid, modern, medical research backing Creighton Model System and NaProTechnology. Training programs for Creighton Model Fertility Care Practitioners are going on in 5 continents and Pope Paul VI Institute provides training for NaPro Medical Consultants.Dr Thomas Hilgers is a Director of Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction in Omaha, USA, Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Creighton University School of Medicine. He is board certified In Gynecologic Laser Surgery.

In 2004, Dr. Hilgers published the medical textbook on natural procreative technology, “The Medical and Surgical Practice of NaProTECHNOLOGY”.

About us

fertilitycare centres of Africa (FCCAF)

FertilityCare Centres of Africa (FCCAF) is a non-governmental organization registered in 2012 in Nigeria as a response to the growing demand for the reproductive healthcare that fully respects life, improves marriages and provides for responsible parenthood.

FCCAF provides Creighton Model Fertility Care System, a unique model of advanced procreative health. Our Fertility Care Practitioners teach couples the fertility awareness. These couples use the knowledge to achieve or to postpone pregnancy. The program is also available to single women and couples preparing for marriage who like to know more about their fertility cycles and their gynecological health.

Our Napro Medical Consultants incorporate Creighton Model and NaproTechnology into their medical practices which helps them to identifies root causes of couple's infertility and treat them co-operatively with woman's menstrual cycle.

One of our Fertility Care Practitioners

completed her training as Educator and was recently granted certification as a Fertility Care Educator by the Commission on Certification of the American Academy of Fertility Care Professionals. That makes her to become the first African and first Nigerian Fertility Care Educator.

Creighton model

Creighton fertility Care System

It is “an authentic language of a woman’s health and fertility”. The Creighton Model is based upon couple’s knowledge and understanding of their naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility. Creighton Model is a standardized system of observation of the fertility signs (menstrual flow, cervical mucus flow, dry days).These signs, biological markers are charted by women for gynecological health maintenance and by couples to achieve or to avoid pregnancy. The woman’s observation is charted at the end of each day. At any given time a couple is in position to know their fertile and infertile days in each menstrual cycle. Through this understanding, the couple is able to make decisions (choices) regarding the achievement or avoidance of pregnancy. There is nothing more precise that Creighton Model in identifying time of fertility in woman’s menstrual cycle. Creighton Model provides women the added benefit of being able to monitor and maintain their procreative and gynecologic health over a lifetime. The biomarkers also identify abnormalities in a woman’s health. With the few minutes of daily observation a woman has incredible insight into the function of her body. Creighton Model is truly the only family planning system which has networked family planning with gynecologic and procreative healthcare and health maintenance. Creighton Model charts are becoming the best gynecological health records a woman can keep. Creighton Model Fertility Care System is a foundation of NaProTechnology (Natural Procreative Technology).

Effectiveness of the System

When use to achieve pregnancy in couples with normal fertility the effectiveness is: By the 1st cycle 76% By the 6th cycle 98% In couples with infertility effectiveness to achieve pregnancy with the use of Creighton Model alone is 20 - 40% over a period of 6-12 months. When used to avoid pregnancy: method effectiveness (perfect use) is 99.5% use effectiveness (typical use) is 96.8%

Naprotechnology

Napro fertility Care System

Creighton Model Fertility Care System is a foundation of NaProTechnology. NaProTechnology is an abbreviation of the term "Natural Procreative Technology". It is a new women's health science that monitors and maintains woman's reproductive and gynecological health. NaProTechnology is a fruit of nearly 35 years of scientific medical research.

NaProTechnology uses Creighton Model to extracts the medical information on abnormalities in the menstrual and fertility cycle of the woman as well as help the doctor to carry the necessary investigations at the most appropriate time in the cycle. When the cycle functions abnormally, NaProTECHNOLOGY identifies problems and treat them cooperatively with the cycle. This approach to the treatment does not disturb woman’s ecology and her procreative potentials. Creighton Model charting helps the physician and the patient to monitor effectiveness of the treatment.

With NaProTECHNOLOGY women now have an opportunity to know and understand the causes of the symptoms from which they may suffer. They become collaborators with physician in their healthcare maintenance. NaProTechnology is morally acceptable to people of all faiths.

NaProTechnology provides solution to

Infertility, Menstrual cramps, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), Ovarian cysts, Irregular or abnormal bleeding, Polycystic ovarian disease, Repetitive miscarriages, Hormonal abnormalities, Post partum depression, Chronic discharges, Prematurity prevention.

Effectiveness of Creighton Model combined
