Because Creighton empowers women to truly understand their fertility and reproductive health, many women use their charts to assist them in monitoring their health. Through charting, not only can a woman confidently identify when her next menses will begin, but she can identify patterns in her cycles that may indicate an underlying issue. After identifying these patterns, women can receive NaPro interventions that address and treat issues such as PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, hormonal abnormalities, and more.
