Creighton Model FertilityCare™ for the Premenopausal Years

Prior to menopause, whether they are married or single, women can have a great need for the woman-specific biofeedback the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ (CrMS) can offer them as they undergo the transition.

There are two phases in the childbearing years with the greatest variability, the early onset of the female cycle in the adolescent years and later in the final years of the cycles, called perimenopause or premenopausal years. Providing more and better information about CrMS services for families in the premenopausal years is important for protecting women’s health and relieving those who struggle in the transition from unnecessary suffering. It is particularly vital for women that may experience illness due to more extreme hormonal fluctuations.

The term premenopause refers to the years preceding the cessation of the woman’s menstrual flow, usually after the age of forty. However, at times menopause has a premature onset. The social and physical transitions and challenges during the premenopausal years can include:

  1. children reaching adulthood and leaving home

  2. an adult family member’s dissatisfaction with present employment or a loss of flexibility in making changes because of age or retirement considerations

  3. increasing responsibilities for aging parents

  4. menstrual cycles that may be shorter or more irregular in nature.

Sometimes personal family planning issues take on a new dimension at this time of life. Therefore, families need to know that all the advantages of FertilityCare™ also apply in the premenopausal years.

One woman who first began using FertilityCare™ with her husband during their premenopausal years described their experience as follows: “We hope to achieve a pregnancy before menopause occurs. In the meantime, CrMS allows us to confidently avoid a pregnancy until my high blood pressure might be resolved.” The couple is very satisfied as they use FertilityCare™ because it is flexible, effective, and is free from any side effects. Most importantly, it meets their needs even while their priorities are changing. Women who experience menopause earlier than is typical can receive treatment to prevent osteoporosis. Likewise, those that have more extreme symptoms or endocrine (hormone) related illness can use the vital signs in their cycles to cope better with their condition and get appropriate diagnosis and care for relief.
