Natural Procreative Technology (NaProTech©)

Medical breakthrough in fertility treatment


Natural Procreative Technology (NaProTech) uses a woman’s biological markers to identify both healthy and diseased aspects of a woman’s reproductive physiology.  Developed at Creighton University in Omaha by a team of reproductive specialists, NaProTech cooperates with a woman’s menstrual and fertility cycles to restore the body’s natural ability to conceive.

Unlike other methods of assisted reproduction – which can mask or ignore underlying health issues - NaProTech uses information about a woman’s health to identify the cause, or factors contributing to, fertility difficulties. With the knowledge gained and the problem identified, appropriate action can be taken to correct the situation.

Clinical studies show NaProTech to have a success rate of up to 80-85%.
