FertilityCare Pregnancy Story shared by YT & G, a couple who benefitted from the
FertilityCare & NaproTechnology Programme (23rd July 2012)
We had our child with the help of NaproTechnology under the guidance of the FertilityCare
Team of Dr John Hui and Andy Wee. We were in our late thirties at the time and had been
NaproTechnology is scientifically and medically based; and had enabled us to understand and
overcome our own fertility issues to achieve natural conception where current mainstream
conventional medical practices had failed.
After trying to conceive for a few years, we consulted with a gynaecologist who indicated that
both of us were, for most part healthy. We were then recommended to do SO-IUI which failed
and was subsequently asked to consider IVF. The fact that we were seemingly healthy but
unable to conceive was a terribly disheartening and frustrating experience. We discussed on
undergoing IVF, but had our reservations largely due to our religious beliefs.
It was during these very trying periods of searching and reading up on the Catholic teachings on
IVF and trying to find ways to achieve natural conception (on the world wide web no less!) that
we stumbled upon NaproTechnology and FertilityCare. We desperately wanted to have a child
and were glad that there is a FertilityCare team in Singapore. We met up regularly with the
team. Andy taught us to chart our fertility cycles using the Creighton Model System (similar to
the Billings charting method except that it is much more detailed) and Dr John provided us with
I went through “the works” in the medical work-ups – going through post-ovulation blood tests,
ultrasound scans and laparoscopy. It was through the blood tests that we discovered that I have
luteal phase defect (which was not previously discovered). (It also explained the regular pre-
menstrual terrible headaches I had.) I was then prescribed with HCG injections at specific
intervals post ovulation which I learnt to administer on myself to address this issue. Through
the laproscopy surgery recommended by Dr John, I learnt that I have mild endometriosis,
adenomyosis and had two tubal cysts removed during surgery.
In the third month after the surgery, we found that we have successfully conceived a child.
Whilst very happy with the news, we were also very cautious as I was found to have very low
progesterone levels. Dr John had me do my blood tests fortnightly to monitor my progesterone
level and I had progesterone support during pregnancy until my third trimester.
NaproTechnology does not promise instantaneous and fast results or outcomes ( I went
through treatments for more than a year.) because time is required to allow ourselves and the
FertilityCare team (Dr. John and Andy) to track our biomarkers and understand the patterns of
our fertility cycles. Based on the results of our fertility cycle charts, Dr John then recommended
the necessary medical interventions. However, NaproTechnology treatments aim to optimize
our own natural fertility potential as a couple and through these treatments we have a better
understanding of our own bodily functions and the root causes of our infertility issues.
We are really thankful to God for the blessing of our child, conceived naturally through the help
of NaproTechnology; and the FertilityCare team of Dr John Hui and Andy Wee who not only
provided medical but also emotional support during the process of undergoing treatments.
To couples who are trying to conceive but had been unsuccessful, we would recommend
seeking medical interventions through NaproTechnology.
Malaria is an infectious disease that is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions. It infects between 300 and 500 million people every year and causes between one and three million deaths annually, mostly among young children in Sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria is not just a disease commonly associated with poverty, but is also a cause of poverty and a major hindrance to economic development. Ma
