Creighton Model vs. Artificial Contraception

“Isn’t this just a more natural method of birth control?”

This is probably the question that is most commonly asked when women and couples start to learn more about the Creighton Model™. The answer is an emphatic “NO”! Here are three reasons why:

  • Rather than suppressing your fertility (as would be the case with artificial contraceptives), the Creighton Model™ embraces your body’s natural fertility and gives you the skills to correctly identify your fertile and infertile windows.
  • Rather than placing the fertility of the couple on just one person, the Creighton Model is a shared system. The woman observes, the man supports, and the couple uses the method together. It therefore respects the dignity of both individuals in the decision-making process. 

While numerous studies have documented the risks associated with artificial contraception, there are no adverse side effects to a natural method of family planning like Creighton. Learn more about the documented risks of contraceptives.
