Cincinnati, OH – April 2013 – Couples trying to conceive can learn more about infertility
solutions consistent with Catholic moral teaching at an upcoming event, “A Catholic Approach to
Infertility.” The conference occurs Saturday, June 8, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Immaculate Heart of
Mary Parish on Beechmont Avenue.
“We hope this conference will help couples who are struggling with infertility,” said Jason
Mattingly, M.D., family medicine physician and CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System medical
consultant (a natural method of family planning). “Often they are not sure what solutions are available,
particularly within the Catholic faith.”
The conference will feature keynote speaker Patrick Yeung Jr., M.D., an Ob/Gyn, medical
consultant for the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System and founder/director of the St. Louis
University Center for Endometriosis.
“Dr. Yeung has the unique ability to share his extensive medical knowledge on infertility and
endometriosis, as well as his personal experiences dealing with these issues,” said Dr. Mattingly.
Local practitioners of NaProTECHNOLOGY and the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™
System, such as Dr. Mattingly, will speak at the event.
Local couples who have successfully used this method will share their experiences.
The conference will highlight the infertility treatment approach developed by Thomas Hilgers, M.D., which includes the reproductive science of NaProTECHNOLOGY and the tracking method of the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System. NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology) is a new women’s health science that monitors and maintains a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health. It provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.
The CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) relies upon the standardized observation and charting of biological markers that are essential to a woman’s health and fertility. These “biomarkers” tell the couple when they are naturally fertile and infertile, allowing the couple to use the
system either to achieve or to avoid pregnancy. These biomarkers also telegraph abnormalities in a woman’s health.
