Women Healed
 

The following quotes are taken from the book In Their Own Words: Women Healed. Published in 2004, this book includes testimonies of women (and their husbands) whose lives have been enriched by the medical care, education and research efforts of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction. It is edited by Jean Blair Packard with Physician Comments by Thomas W. Hilgers, MD.

"The Creighton Model is not a hard method to learn...As each month passed, I gained more and more confidence. It was so awesome to be completely in tune with my body. I knew when I was ovulating and best of all, I knew when my next cycle was going to start, despite being irregular. But most importantly, we were doing this together. It wasn't all on my shoulders alone. Tom took on an active role, and I am sure that he knows more about the ins and outs of the female reproductive system than most women do!"

"Charting with Creighton Model has given me a sense of empowerment. I can tell what my body is doing and when I expect menses to occur. I also have experienced relief from PMS, cramps, and many other horrible symptoms. The charting method is easy and applicable in many ways to my health. By applying the methods researched by Dr. Hilgers and the Pope Paul VI Institute, I have experienced relief and a sense of control of my body for the very first time."

"For most of my life I have had to struggle with premenstrual syndrome. I thought this was normal and everyone went through this. For me, the symptoms were primarily irritablility, fatigue, feeling down and crying easily...Once it started, I would feel good until next month. I started noticing this happening about the same time each month and began thinking something must be different about my system. My hormones must be dropping lower than normal. Then my sister told me that a friend had told her that Dr. Thomas Hilgers at the Pope Paul VI Institute treats women with low progesterone. I learned to chart my cycles with the Creighton Model FertilityCare System. Then with the use of that charting, the blood tests showed that on a particular day of my cycle, my progesterone dropped lower than normal and stayed low until the end of the cycle. I was started on progesterone injection shots. I receive these shots on Peak +3, 5, 7, 9 and llth day of my cycle. I have been receiving these shots for almost two years now and I am amazed at the difference in how I feel. I am much calmer and the fatigue and depression symptoms have significantly decreased. There are some months when I feel so good I do not realize my cycle is about to start. I only know by my chart. In additon, Dr. Hilgers also looked at other aspects of my health. I found out my thyroid and beta-endorphins were low. I have been receiving treatment for these, and I feel like a different person. I am able to handle the stresses of life so much better."

This system has taught me so much about God's unique design of the human body and its functions. This program should be encouraged for all couples preparing for marriage."

"Our Creighton Model teacher picked up on my fertility chart that I was low on progesterone. She checked out that I was pregnant on about day 32 of my cycle, referred me to the doctor to start progesterone right away and I've always felt that I could have miscarried, if it wasn't for her efficiency and dedication. Thank you so much. Michael is now four years old and our angel."
