Format: Hardcover
Dr. Thomas Hilgers maintains that "Each of...three major developments in the field of reproductive medicine - the release of the birth control pill, the legalization of abortion, and the introduction of in vitro fertilization - has had a major impact on the practice of obstetrics and gynecology and the health care of women" (p. 4). He goes on to powerfully describe the devastating impacts brought about by each of these developments. Counter-culturally, Hilgers maintains that fertility awareness can be taught for postponing or achieving pregnancy. He advocates instruction to wives and husbands "to determine, in effect, when the biological valve is open (a time of fertility) and when it is closed (a time of infertility)....These observations are easy to do and require very little time" (p.52); his revolutionary NaPro Technology is an outgrowth of this approach.

The second and third sections of The NaPro Technology Revolution provide a review of the human reproductive system and explanations of the Creighton Model charting system & NaPro Technology, respectively. The fourth section consists of chapters devoted to Effects of Stress, Recurrent Ovarian Cysts, Premenstrual Syndrome, Postpartum Depression, Infertility: What Progress Over 50 Years, NaPro Technology & Infertility, Recurrent Miscarriage, Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Disease, Absence of Menstrual Periods, Male Infertility, Menstrual Cramps & Pelvic Pain, Chronic Vaginal Discharges, Unusual Bleeding, and Prevention of Preterm Birth. The closing section consists of chapters devoted to Costs & Insurance Reform and New Insights from Current Research.

Don't expect to see any praise coming from the pharmaceutical industry for Hilger's magnificent work.

Dr. Hilgers has often stated publicly that there are many who have an opinion of NaProTECHNOLOGY, but none of them actually have the faintest idea what it is. With the release of this book, lack of understanding can no longer be an excuse! Within its 460 pages, this long anticipated book creates a clear, concise and comprehensive overview of the Creighton Model FertilityCare system and NaProTechnology (NPT). Written specifically for the lay person, it includes guides for the physician and other health care providers with explanations of treatment protocols and further references online.

In the introductory chapter, Hilgers promises the female reader that, if she has ever been dissatisfied, frustrated or even abandoned by her health care provider, she is not alone. He then begins to outline the current approach to reproductive health care, health care he explains is neither reproductive nor healthy. From here, he launches into an explanation of this new approach to women's health care, with chapters entitled "Dissent and Discovery", "Women Healed" and "Two Approaches to Reproductive Medicine".

As most women have a lack of understanding of basic reproductive functioning, Dr. Hilgers devotes the first few chapters on female anatomy, physiology and hormone cycles. He addresses the "myths, ignorance and insults" that have been placed before this work over the many years of its development and lambastes the state of modern reproductive medicine. While explaining the NaProTracking of the fertility cycle, Hilgers is careful to give a full explanation without taking away the need for instruction with a FertilityCare Practitioner.

I have read a lot of work in this area and this is the most comprehensive and thoroughly researched view of the fertility cycle out there! Thank you Dr. Hilgers for making this available to the lay public as well as those in the medical field. I am especially impressed with the scope of the work as it relates to couples esperiencing infertility problems. Spread the word people...this is revolutionary!

Format: Hardcover
I am a practicing Catholic who has been dealing with infertility following the birth of my first child. I was very interested in finding out about NaPro technology as my husband and I are considering going to the Pope VI institute. My review is of the book, and of the way the information is presented, not of NaPro technology. I have to say this book is not everything I was looking for. I was looking for a book that would help me understand potential problems with my cycle. I definitely found a lot of information in this book that was not presented in any other books. However, in terms of how the information is presented, I find that "Taking Charge of your Fertility" and "Fertility Cycles and Nutrition" do a better job at presenting basic information in a clear understandable manner. I felt this book was too dense with medical explanations, but at the end of the day that level of detail does not always help me identify the problem. In other words, in my opinion, it fails to meet the target audience at their level. Also, I was surprised to see that the method does not use basal temperature. The other two books I mentioned have helped me identify problems based on what my temperature charts look like. I am open to learning the Creighton method, but it is not designed to be self taught which poses another obstacle. While I think this book is worth a read, I just want to point out that it is not a "self-help" book. I would suggest to women having problems to first read the other two books I mentioned and apply the suggestions in them. I have come up with a course of action for myself and my husband based on "Fertility Cycles and Nutrition" which I will follow for some months after which I will consider NaPro technology.
