Dr. Craig Turczynski is trained as a Reproductive Physiologist. His unique career path has led him to become an expert in fertility awareness methods and restorative reproductive medicine, especially andrology, a branch of science related to men’s fertility. Dr Turczynski is not a physician, but a Ph.D trained clinical scientist and a Billings Ovulation Method® certified instructor. He is especially passionate about working with couples that are experiencing infertility and seeking an alternative to IVF or other assisted reproductive technologies. Dr. Turczynski consults nationally on semen analysis and male infertility evaluation from a Catholic perspective.
After completing his doctorate and post-doctorate training, Craig directed the in-vitro fertilization, andrology, and hormone assay laboratories at Louisiana State University Medical Center-Shreveport where he also served as Assistant Professor of ObGyn and Embryologist.
After seeing the harm that assisted reproductive technology frequently caused to patients, Dr. Turczynski left the field of IVF. His observations led him to believe that the aggressive use of this technology was not what was best for patients with infertility. He now passionately believes in the wisdom of Catholic teaching regarding human reproduction. Clearly following natural law is what is best for us, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Armed with this new knowledge and passion Craig sought additional training including the Creighton Model and then became a certified teacher and trainer of the Billings Ovulation Method®. He also pursued a certification in healthcare ethics from the National Catholic Bioethics Center and a fellowship in restorative reproductive medicine from Dr Phil Boyle, founder of NeoFertility in Dublin, Ireland.
