Natural Family Planning
Interested in learning about how to start NFP? (Click here)
Welcome to the world of FertilityCare Creighton Model fertility awareness. Some know it as Natural Family Planning, or NFP. You have questions and concerns. You may have been thinking of them for a while. Your doctor may have directed you to learn to chart your fertility signs daily with the Creighton Model.
Call your insurance to make sure diagnosis code Z30.02 is covered under the doctors at Tepeyac. Z30.02 should read “instruction in natural family planning”. Ask how many sessions are covered, and the amount of your copay, if any.
Please make sure you are fully registered as a Tepeyac patient. To do this, call 703.273.9400. Make sure your current insurance information is on file.
After you have completed the above, email me at metroDCfertilitycareRN@gmail.com to arrange an appointment and delivery of paper materials you’ll use as a daily note taking chart. Include your patient number, your date of birth, your name on file with Tepeyac, and why you are seeking info for the Creighton Model.
We can then have a phone consult I will submit to the doctors who sign off on our appt. as an actual appointment is done.

Through modern technology and charting, fertile times are easily identified and proven to be 96-98% effective in multiple world-wide studies. Tepeyac’s physicians and Certified Nurse Midwife will provide instruction, training, and ongoing support in several methods of Natural Family Planning to achieve or delay conception.
NaProTECHNOLOGY® (NaPro) and Sympto-thermal methods are over 96% use-effective at delaying pregnancy (the pill is 91% use-effective).
Women with regular or irregular cycles successfully can use NFP and NaPro to avoid or delay pregnancy when a couple discerns a serious reason to do so. PMS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, endometriosis, and other health problems can be identified and treated through NFP’s fertility monitoring.
NFP and NaPro can help achieve pregnancy for women struggling with infertility by identifying hormone deficiencies and precise fertile windows. Tepeyac OB/GYN offers several methods of NFP, including the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, the Billings Ovulation Method™, the Marquette Model, and the Sympto-Thermal Method.
