I have looked into NaproTech a little (we are having problems but don’t fall into the “official” category of infertile until we’ve been trying for a year. Even though I don’t ovulate. Joy).

We ARE Catholic though and IVF wouldn’t be a good fit for us.

Naprotechnology is basically a somewhat “granola” approach to infertility that focuses on treating the casue of the problem rather than the symptom (the symptom being that you can’t get or stay pregnant). There’s something going wrong in your body or your husband’s body that is underlying that. So rather than jump to the high-tech, expensive fix like IVF they really go through trying to find out what is going on.

If you consult their stats, they do have higher success rates than “standard” infertility treatments but it’s not a silver bullet. It doesn’t work for everyone.

Also, if you DID want other treatment options you would probably have to switch to a different provider because Catholic hospitals don’t do straight up IVF. They can do IUI and many other procedures similar to IVF but they won’t make embryos in the lab.

So annoying that they keep trying to push Creighton on you – honestly I do nooooot want to learn Crieghton either so this might be an obstacle for me, too if Napro=Creighton. I am not very clear on whether they are identical though or if in certain circumstances it’s not necessary.

Creighton is mucus charting it does not include temperature charting.  I am not sure what TCOYF has you chart.  The NaPro is how a medical provider can analyze your cycle and see what types of things are wrong and what things ca be done to correct any issues you may have.  

Maybe you should look around for another IF center.

Their system seems pretty legit and seems to find IF issues and offers natural remedies and then medical intervention. 

Tomorrow definitely address your issue with IVF and see if they will be able to continue with you through the entire process.  I don’t know if you would want to switch up after working with them if IVF is needed and they are not willing to provide the service.
