While the disease does not cause infertility in women, treatments for the disease can cause problems for some women.Some of the medications female CFers need to take daily can interfere with the levels of bacteria and acidity in the vagina, making them more susceptible to thrush. About 98 percent of all male CF patients are infertile due to a blockage or total absence of the sperm canal.Always seek the advice of your physician or another qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

Female CF patients have a thicker cervical mucus caused by the defective functioning of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) function.
The thicker mucus can make it more difficult for sperm to penetrate the cervix, increasing the amount of time needed for a woman to get pregnant.
Their stories are told alongside the facts to help put it all in context.
You might find it helpful, for example, to hear from a mum with CF who has twins, or to read about what fertility treatment was like for one dad.In addition, women with CF are also more likely to suffer stress incontinence and have irregular menstruation related to poor nutrition. This defect is called congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD).
