Just got back from a NaPro talk. :)

Yay! I just got back from a NaPro presentation right here in Phoenix.

Knowing all of my blogger friends really got me interested in all of it a few months ago, and then I found out that one of my friends here in town (a doctor and a mom at my kids' school) has been training with Dr. Hilgers and PPVI to become certified FertilityCare practitioner (hope I'm using the right term). She is now working to find a surgeon who can serve the Phoenix area. Our bishop is very much in favor of bringing NaPro here.

It was truly amazing to see the overview, philosophy and practices of NaPro Technology and sort of fill in the blanks from all that I have learned on the blogs. I'm getting a feeling for how you all chart, and all the blood series you get, u/s series, etc. Wow! Impressive! (Now I won't be so confused when I read the technical parts of your posts!)

We have zero Creighton teachers in the area, but they will soon be training two (again, thank you, Bishop Olmsted!).

If people knew about NaPro they would never go the IVF route, or use the Pill for painful periods, endo, etc.

Anyway, I have known about PPVI for many years (and I always had recommended it to anyone who had reproductive problems), but all you bloggers have really helped to educate me on the details, protocols and effectiveness. Most importantly, the beauty and logic of it!

I hope I can do my part to spread the word.

  9. So, after I had M I went back to the doc b/c of weird cycles. He told me that I needed to be on THE PILL for 3 months in order to "restore my fertility." (this isn't my regular ob, but he is in the same practice.) I told him I never wanted to be on the pill and to just write that in my chart. He just shrugged his shoulders and put me on prometrium like I asked. We got pregnant with JP the next cycle. if I had listened to him we wouldn't have JP. NaPro docs in your area would be awesome ;)

  11. Leila,

    That is so cool that you got to go to that talk! I wish they had a talk in my area as I'm just getting ready to step foot into the NaPro world! Can't wait to hear your story. I really enjoy reading your posts!

  12. This is so wonderful! My church actually trained my friend to practice b/c the only one in the area was...odd lol and they thought she would turn off the younger crowd. I love the support and it sounds like you have it in a big way. I am all too familiar with u/s and hormone series! btw, I thought I was following you and I wasn't-have no idea how that happened, but glad to be back!
