Question: Can you be in a relationship with cystic fibrosis?

Mucus, digestion issues, ports, hospital admissions, chronic coughing, and pills and treatments all have their necessary place in a relationship with someone who has CF. It can make dating hard and intimidating at first. Revealing and coping with CF for a couple can be overwhelming and difficult as well.

Can people with cystic fibrosis be in a relationship?

People with cystic fibrosis should never meet each other, as they carry bacteria within their lungs that could be harmful to each other.

Can someone with cystic fibrosis have a baby?

Women with CF have thicker cervical mucus and can have ovulation issues due to poor nutrition. However, the majority of women with CF are fertile and can become pregnant if appropriate contraception is not used.
