Fertility Awareness Methods

Creighton (In collaboration with the Twin Cities Fertility Care Center)
Twin Cities FertilityCare™ Center utilizes the Creighton Model FertilityCare System™ to provide women and couples with a comprehensive and affirming understanding of their fertility. Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrMS) is a comprehensive method for tracking a woman’s fertility by teaching her to objectively describe her cervical fluid or mucus observations throughout her cycle. Working in tandem with allied health professionals, our FertilityCare practitioners utilize NaproTechnology to provide cooperative solutions for a variety of reproductive and gynecological issues from the first menses through menopause.

FEMM stands for Fertility Education and Medical Management. FEMM provides education for women about their bodies and hormonal health, a free app to track their health and fertility, and medical support when required. FEMM uses cervical mucus monitoring along with urinary test strips to measure the presence or absence of luteinizing hormone (LH) in order to calculate the end-of-cycle fertility.
