How can I get started?
All couples will first attend an Introductory Session. It is an hour-long presentation that is designed to give couples enough information to decide if CrMS is right for them. Then, if interested in learning and using CrMS, couples will have the opportunity to receive their materials and schedule a follow-up session.
Follow-up sessions are held individually with couples. This is where the actual learning of the system takes place and where CrMS is tailored to the individual needs and goals of the couple. Classes are offered in both La Crosse and Onalaska. Registration is required. For more information, session rates, or to register, call 608-392-4624.
Charting with CrMS is the essential first step in accessing NaProTechnology services. Once charting has begun and the cycle has been reviewed by the practitioner, a referral can be made to Dr, Jessica Sosso in the Center for Women's Health.
