The study of Creighton Model Effectiveness, Intentions, and Behaviors Assessment CEIBA was conducted to assess fertility motivations, intentions, fertility-related sexual behaviors, and their impact on effectiveness to avoid and to conceive among new users of the CrM. This paper reports enrollment baseline characteristics. Couples who were new or returning users of the CrM were eligible.
Couples who were initially trying to conceive or had a history of subfertility were excluded. They completed baseline questionnaires.
Women and men intended to have a mean of three and two additional children, respectively. The mean positive childbearing motivation score was 3.
Couples beginning use of the CrM to avoid pregnancy have high levels of motivation, desire, and intention for future childbearing. We will assess the impact of desires, intentions, and behaviors on the pregnancy rates among these couples. Methods of family planning based upon identifying the days of potential fertility in women, known as natural family planning NFP or fertility awareness-based methods FABMsare an important option for family planning 1 — 4.
These methods use various biomarkers to identify days in the menstrual cycle when intercourse is likely to result in pregnancy. Among their advantages are low cost, lack of side effects, and the education they can provide users about their own reproductive physiology and health 5 — 7. By definition, NFP refers to avoiding pregnancy through abstinence from genital contact 89while FABM allows for the use of barriers or withdrawal on fertile days—as well as abstinence—when pregnancy avoidance is intended 10 In addition to their use in avoiding Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska, FABM or NFP methods are unique among family planning methods in their additional ability to help couples try to time pregnancy 12 — Indeed, in population-based studies, potential interest in Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska methods has been greater for the purpose of conceiving than of avoiding conception 15 Many, perhaps most, long-term users of FABM or NFP methods will at different times use the method both to avoid pregnancy and to conceive, transitioning between these intentions 17 — Louis University, was further developed and implemented by Dr.
It is based on standardized observation and recording of vaginal discharge especially from cervical mucus and vaginal bleeding, interpretation of these biomarkers for fertility and health status, and teaching using a case management approach Additionally, a system of medical protocols called natural procreative technology NaProTechnology has been developed for supporting women with gynecologic problems and couples with infertility and integrated with the CrM The study of Creighton Model Effectiveness, Intentions, and Behaviors Assessment CEIBA was conducted to assess the spectrum of fertility motivations, intentions, and fertility-related sexual behaviors and quantify their impact on effectiveness in avoiding or achieving pregnancy among new users of the CrM with initial pregnancy avoidance intentions.
In this paper, we report on the recruitment for CEIBA, baseline demographic characteristics, and the childbearing motivations and intentions of women and men heterosexual couples who started use of the CrM with the initial intention of avoiding pregnancy.
We also describe the protocol for assessing follow-up intentions, behaviors, and pregnancy. Of the participating CrM centers, eight were directly connected to a Catholic institution, while the other nine were independent organizations, most with strong networking connections to local Catholic communities. All new or returning couples seeking instruction in the CrM were screened for study eligibility with a screening questionnaire.
The study began enrollment in September and closed enrollment in December Couples were recruited from among those normally presenting to the participating centers to learn the CrM. In addition, we recruited online through blog posts, websites, and a Facebook.
We attempted to screen all couples presenting to the participating FCPs for eligibility.

Initially, couples were eligible for this study if they were learning CrM for the first time with the stated intention of avoiding pregnancy. This change was made to maximize recruitment, while still maintaining a focus on couples who were beginning use of the CrM to avoid pregnancy.
An informed consent document was completed by participants, either on paper or online, and was ed by both partners. If completed on paper, it was ed by the FCP instructing the couple; if completed online, a study staff member called each partner to verify their consent and answer any questions. Couples were instructed in the CrM according to standard procedures. Briefly, couples attended an introductory session usually in a small group settingwhere the scientific underpinnings of the CrM were presented, reading materials were given, and instructions were given for the woman to begin making and interpreting daily vulvar observations.
Standard CrM records included the following Copies of each Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska these records were obtained and entered into an electronic study database. After consent, an entrance questionnaire was completed online, with a separate questionnaire for the woman and the man.
This questionnaire contained additional information about demographics and medical history, and questions about childbearing motivations, desires, and behaviors.
These include a series of questions which are averaged to form two scaled measures for positive childbearing motivation and negative childbearing motivation. There are also a series of questions about childbearing desires and childbearing intentions. These scales and associated questions have been ly used and validated in other studies 31 — At or near the beginning of each menstrual cycle, a brief cycle questionnaire was completed online, with a separate questionnaire for the woman and the man.
This questionnaire assessed intention regarding pregnancy for the coming cycle, and use of any other family planning or fertility tracking methods in the prior cycle, including condoms, withdrawal, urine LH kits, or basal body temperature. Upon exit from the study, the couple completed an online exit questionnaire. There were four versions of this questionnaire: for pregnancy or no pregnancy during the study, each separately for the woman and the man.
This questionnaire included items about factors around the use of CrM Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska the study, including repeating questions about use of other family planning or fertility tracking methods. For couples with a pregnancy, it had questions about the pregnancy.
The primary outcome for this study was a clinical pregnancy, as identified by the woman or man. There was active surveillance for pregnancy throughout the study follow-up in three ways: 1 the CrM user chart documented the onset of each menstrual flow and the length of each postovulatory phase i.
For each identified pregnancy, we reminded and encouraged study participants to contact the CrM FCPs to complete a standard CrM pregnancy evaluation, documented using the CrM pregnancy evaluation form Where circumstances did not allow the original CrM FCP to complete the pregnancy evaluation, we arranged for the study participant to receive a pregnancy evaluation with a different CrM FCP. The CrM pregnancy evaluation form is deed to be completed for every CrM pregnancy. It is a standard CrM procedure for some pregnancies to receive a second pregnancy evaluation by a different CrM FCP 35 ; in these cases, we collected both pregnancy evaluation forms.
Independently of the pregnancy evaluation form, when pregnancies occurred we sent an online pregnancy version of the study exit questionnaire to both the woman and the man, who completed it directly online, as described above. Couples began to contribute time into the study during the cycle in which they first recorded any sexual intercourse.

Couples were not eligible to enter the study again after pregnancy, regardless of the outcome of the pregnancy. We used descriptive statistics to summarize characteristics and reproductive history of study participants at the entrance to the study and start of CrM useas well as measures of their childbearing motivations, desires, and intentions; similar methods were used to examine reasons for exclusion from the study for those not eligible.
Using the chi-square statistic, we compared demographic and reproductive characteristics of both women and men who were consented versus not consented for the study. We constructed multivariate linear regression models to examine predictors of of future children desired and of future children intended, for both women and men.
The of couples enrolled per month ranged from 0 to 30, with a median of 10 enrollments per month. The women were enrolled across all 17 sites. The minimum enrolled per sites was 2, the maximum was 60, and the median enrollment per site was There were demographic differences between couples who enrolled in the CEIBA study, and couples seen during the same time who were not enrolled. The mean age of women enrolled was Demographic and reproductive characteristics of women and men consented and not consented for the CEIBA study.
The missing response category is included for the chi-square calculation. Twenty-two women had ly used the CrM to avoid pregnancy, and 11 women had ly used the CrM to conceive. Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska, there were 27 of all consented women who had ly used the CrM in either way, representing 8.
These women were eligible and enrolled under the expanded criteria described above because they were returning to use of the CrM after a pregnancy or other time period of not using the CrM. The mean positive childbearing motivation score for both women and men was 3. Each combined score is each on a scale from 1 to 4, with 4 denoting the strongest level of motivation.

of future children desired was negatively correlated with age, negative childbearing motivations, of prior live births, and past use of any hormonal contraception, IUD, or emergency contraception. Marital status was not correlated.
Altogether, these variables ed for over half of the variance adjusted R 2 for of future children wanted for both women and men. As expected, the of future children intended was most strongly correlated with of future children wanted.
Positive correlations were also present with perception of of future children wanted by the spouse or partner, especially for men. There was a negative association for being married in comparison with mostly engaged couplesand of prior live births for men only. For men, there was a positive association with positive childbearing motivations, but no other association with childbearing motivations score for women and men. We recruited couples to a prospective study of the CrM for family planning. The majority was engaged or married, college graduates, Ladies seeking sex Marquette Nebraska Catholic.
All CrM centers serve women and couples of any faith or no faithbut the association with Catholic institutions means that the exposure and accessibility to the CrM is greater for Catholic couples. This is consistent with a study in Germany and Poland which found that, while interest in NFP was not associated with religious motivation, the actual use of NFP was associated with Catholic affiliation Consistent with eligibility criteria for the study, all couples were originally planning to avoid or space pregnancy, but the vast majority had high levels of childbearing motivation, desire, and childbearing intention for the near future.
It is instructive to compare the positive and negative childbearing motivation scores of the CEIBA couples with those of couples in California in a study In the California study, all the couples were married: half had no children and had been married for a mean of 3. The mean positive childbearing motivation score in the California study was 2. The mean negative childbearing motivation score was 2.
The mean total of children desired was 2. In comparison, our sample had higher positive childbearing motivation scores mean 3. This high level of childbearing motivations, desires, and intentions may represent a strong proceptive influence from high levels of involvement in Catholicism and perhaps other religions 36 ,
