Naprotechnology, assisted reproductive techniques


The current pace of life, poor nutrition, late age for having children, pollution or certain pathologies are some of the factors that can cause it. affect fertility. For this reason, it is increasingly common to use assisted breeding techniques.

technology from assisted reproduction or artificial fertilization A set of biomedical techniques or methods that facilitate or can replace the natural process of fertilization is defined. It helps the egg to be fertilized.[banner-DFP_1]

Although the two most common techniques are intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF)technology has meant that over the years new methods have emerged that are less aggressive for women, as well as less expensive, as is the case with napro technology.

Naprotechnology is a non-invasive scientific approach that looks for causes of infertility and enhances a couple’s natural ability to reproduce.

This is a scientific approach non-invasive, which looks for causes of infertility and enhances a couple’s natural ability to reproduce. In other words, this methodology is successful in identifying the causes of infertility in women 99.5% of the case.

It Natural Procreation Technology (“NaPro Technology”, translated into English) was born over 30 years ago in the United States by gynecologists and obstetricians thomas hilfers. Despite its long history in countries such as Canada, Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland (where the technique is integrated into public health systems), this innovative method only arrived in Spain a few years ago.[banner-DFP_4]

Data are systematically transferred to charts which offer clinicians valuable and objective information when deciding which complementary study is required in each case.

Naprotechnology uses biomarkers from model-creighton to recognize health and disease. The basis of this model is the system gynecological health monitoring through recording a range of biomarkers throughout a woman’s fertility cycle, such as the duration and characteristics of cervical mucus, length of the menstrual cycle, menstrual pain, abdominal pain or even menstrual type.

This data is systematically transferred to chart which offers the doctor valuable and objective information when deciding which complementary study is needed in each case to find out the probable cause of infertility and what day of the woman’s cycle it is most appropriate to do the test.

This new form of fertilization also uses a complete diagnostic study in men to identify all the factors that affect their fertility and to be able to prescribe effective treatment. Once a complete diagnosis of everything that affects male and female fertility is reached, a personalized therapy plan.

It can be said that Naprotechnology identifies problems, cooperates with the menstrual cycle and fertility, improves conditions, respects human ecology and improves procreative potential.


There are several techniques that have been instilled over the years more than this one. new technology, and in a certain way more known and used by the population. However, all of these methods were created and adapted as technology changes over time. These are the most frequently used procedures:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF): is the union of a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm in a laboratory dish. In vitro means outside the body. Fertilization means that the sperm has attached and entered the egg. To perform this procedure it is necessary stimulating hormone to patients in a controlled manner and obtain the eggs, which are then fertilized in vitro in the laboratory, where they are cultured for several days. One of the embryos is transferred back into the uterine cavity and cryopreservation the rest for future use.
  • Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): involves placing sperm directly into the uterus while it is being ovulate, which helps the sperm to get closer to the egg. This reduces the time and distance the sperm has to travel, making it easier to fertilize an egg. This is a simple, low-tech procedure and can be less expensive than other types of fertility treatment.
  • Intracytoplasmic Injection (ICSI): it’s about choosing sperm for their morphology and mobility, and their microinjection within the oocyte cytoplasm. Before depositing the sperm in the egg, a small amount of its cytoplasm is aspirated to activate the oocyte. Sperm may come from an ejaculate sample or from testicular biopsy. Men should provide a semen sample or perform a testicular biopsy, if necessary, to extract and select the best sperm to use for oocyte fertilization.
  • Egg donation: via method test-tube baby, eggs donated by other women are used instead of the patient’s own eggs. However, women who receive embryos must undergo treatment to prepare the endometrium for embryo transfer.
  • Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD): it’s a preventive technique used on purpose detect abnormalities in genetic material from the embryo. Thanks to PGD, it is possible to avoid the transfer of embryos with genetic or chromosomal changes and, in this way, increase the chances have healthy children.

Because we all need health…
