If you are interested in learning to use the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, follow the simple steps outlined below. You can also find information about costs of getting started with the System, including information about health insurance coverage for Anchor FertilityCare™ Center's services.
STEP 1. ATTEND AN INTRODUCTORY SESSION
STEP 2. GET MATERIALS, SCHEDULE FIRST FOLLOW-UP, START CHARTING
During the Introductory Session, you will have the opportunity to purchase client materials and schedule your first Follow-up Session. Also, after completing the Introductory Session you will be ready to start charting. Your first Follow-up will take place two weeks after the Introductory Session.
STEP 3. ATTEND FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS
It is during the Follow-up Sessions that the majority of instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System takes place and is tailored to your particular needs. Clients should attend eight Follow-up Sessions over the course of the first year of using the System (more may be necessary depending on your reproductive category). The first four Follow-ups are scheduled once every two weeks. This allows for close supervision as you learn to chart your biomarkers. After the first four sessions, Follow-ups are less frequent. After the first year of use, clients should meet with their teacher every 6-12 months to obtain supplies, review their charts, and ask questions that may surface while using the System.
Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System Follow-ups are always private one-on-one sessions so that the System may be personalized for the user. At each Follow-up we will work in detail on perfecting your observation and charting routine, discuss any questions or concerns you might be facing, and gradually advance your instructions. Close cooperation between the user and the teacher will allow you to quickly gain confidence and use the System successfully. You will not be able to teach yourself how to use the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System. Only attending Follow-ups will ensure an effective use of the System. Couples are encouraged to attend appointments together, however this is not required.
It is important to understand that once a couple has learned to use the System, they can use it for life, through any reproductive changes they will experience. Therefore, ongoing costs are very minimal. The first year investment in learning the System will serve you throughout your entire life and in any reproductive category.
Depending on your insurance provider, you may be able to be reimbursed for the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System services. At each Follow-up, Anchor FertilityCare™ Center will provide you with a receipt with appropriate medical codes that you may used to file a claim with your insurance provider.
