Can the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) help with Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)?
PCOD is a condition that is usually associated with infertility because the ovaries do not function properly and ovulate irregularly. Typically a woman with PCOD will have very long cycles and may experience long periods of irregular bleeding. Most of the time when a woman comes to the doctor for PCOD she will be placed on the birth control pill in a “Band-Aid” approach to regulate her cycle.
This does nothing to fix the underlying condition, will usually cause other problems, and once the birth control pill is stopped, the symptoms will reoccur. Left untreated, PCOD can have severe long-term health effects such as:
Increase risk of heart attack and heart disease
- Type II diabetes
- Endometrial cancer
- Breast cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
NaProTECHNOLOGY® works cooperatively with a woman’s menstrual cycle and fertility cycle to correct the underlying condition, thereby restoring her fertility and preserving her health.
