1. Most Female CF Patients Have No Problems Conceiving
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, cystic fibrosis affects the reproductive system but most women have no difficulties getting pregnant.
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.
Typically, pregnant moms with CF have healthy pregnancies and their babies are born just fine. In about 85 percent of pregnancies, mothers conceived within a year after stopping contraceptives.
