FACTS is a group of physicians, healthcare professionals and educators working together to provide information about natural or fertility awareness based methods of family planning with the medical community.

Natural Procreative (NaPro) Technology works with the Creighton method of charting to analyze, diagnose, and treat cycle and hormonal irregularities, infertility, and miscarriage. NaPro Technology is a reproductive health science that works cooperatively with the procreative and gynecologic systems. When those systems function abnormally, NaPro identifies the underlying problems and cooperates with the cycle in tes treatments that correct the condition, maintain the natural human ecology, and sustain the procreative potential.
NaPro Technology was founded through Saint Paul VI Institute in 1985 by Thomas W. Hilgers, MD. It is recognized for its critcal achievements in the field of natural fertility regulation and reproductive medicine of scientific research and education; allied health professional education programs for couples and professionals; professional, caring, and morally acceptable patient services.
