Long-Term Fertility Improvement Through the NaPro Approach
With most things, it’s far wiser to fix the root of the problem than apply a short-term solution. Infertility is no different.
Emily and Corey had been trying to conceive for three years before they learned about the NaProTECHNOLOGY approach to treating infertility. She learned to chart her cycles using the Creighton Model hoping it would lead to some insights. When she still wasn’t pregnant a year later, she was referred to Dr. Gavin Puthoff.
Prior to this, Emily and Corey had avoided seeing specialists. “We felt like we would have just gotten directed to IVF, and that wasn’t an option for us,” she says. “Still, we wanted answers, especially since I thought there must be something wrong with my body.”
Based on Emily’s history of painful periods and infertility, Dr. Puthoff suspected she had endometriosis and recommended a laparoscopic surgery, which he performed in early 2016. During the procedure, he confirmed the diagnosis and completely removed Emily’s endometriosis as well as a large tubal cyst, reconstructing the affected fallopian tube.
Although Emily was nervous leading up to the procedure, she says it was more than worth it to finally have a real answer. “When I heard everything he found, I felt a big sense of relief,” she says. “I finally had confirmation that there was something going on with my body to prevent pregnancy.”
A couple months later, Emily and Corey had a big reason to celebrate: After years of struggling, they had finally achieved pregnancy. Now they have two kids, Jada and Beau, with a third one on the way. Since her 2016 surgery, Emily hasn’t needed any additional fertility treatments. By fixing the underlying cause of her infertility, Dr. Puthoff was able to improve her fertility for the long-term.
Emily has a message to share for other women going through infertility: “There’s always hope. We were feeling like it was never going to happen for us, but God directed us right where we needed to be. I felt like Dr. Puthoff genuinely cared about finding a solution for us – this is something he is called to do.”
