Natural Fertility Regulation

We Promote Wellness

Our philosophy is that of promoting wellness for women.  Consistent with this we are especially interested in educating women on their fertility.  We are delighted to help women discover their monthly signs of fertility.  Learning to observe and interpret these signs is the key.  Once these signs are recognized women can confidently manage their fertility according to their needs.

Natural Fertility Regulation

We are familiar with all the methods of Natural Fertility Regulation.  In the Sympto-Thermal methods we have worked with teachers from the Couple to Couple League and Northwest Family Services.  We are also versed on the methods developed at the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University, including the Standard Day Method and the Two Day Method.

The Creighton Model

The Creighton Model, developed by Thomas Hilgers, M.D. is another proven method of fertility regulation.  The effectiveness of this method has been published in peer reviewed journals.  Dr. Hilgers is founder of the Pope VI Institute for Reproductive Studies, located in Omaha, NE. Dr. Hilgers’ landmark textbook, The Principles and Practice of NaProTechnology, is based on research conducted at the Institute.  Through education in Omaha Dr. Hickner became a Certified Medical Consultant in The Creighton Model and is familiar with NaProTechnology.

Billings Ovulation Method

We are enthused about teaching the Billings Ovulation Method.  This method has worldwide appeal, having been researched, taught, and practiced all over the world.  This method is approved by the World Health Organization.  Studies on The Billings Method are published from trials in China, India, Australia, and South America.  The scientific foundations of the Billings Method have been established.  Most remarkably, in three or four appointments, a woman can learn the Billings Method and use this to manage her fertility for a lifetime.  This method of natural fertility regulation requires no hormones or devices by either the woman or her partner.  One only needs to learn the monthly signs fertility.  Look under Upcoming Events on this website for scheduled introductory sessions or make appointment to discuss your fertility needs.
