Most men are sterile - most women can get pregnant. the question is do you want to carry a child while on all your medications? Can you stay healthy for 9 months?
I am 32 male with CF and would not think of bringing a life into this world with the possibility of having CF or even a carrier.... just my 2 cents.
While staying with my daughter in the hospital for her "tune-ups" I met many CF patients and had the opportunity to make quite a few friends. Some of these were women in their 20's and 30's that had children. I'm happy to say these kids did not have CF and enjoyed healthy lives. While some people question the decision to raise kids with their futures uncertain due to their own health, the women I met felt it gave them even more reason to continue their treatment plans more carefully. While it is a major decision that requires alot of thought, I feel the choice is up to you. Good luck with whatever you decide and keep us posted
I happened onto this site by accident and started reading the comments. In 1989 I had a very rare tumor successfully removed from my L5/S1. I was placed on CF ward for recovery because the hospital was full where I should have been placed. I met many wonderful people during this long stay. one day, a mom showed up in my room when I was finally on my feet and invited me to a pizza party. Her daughter turned 12 and was in for treatments just a few rooms down from mine. Many patients on that floor loaded in her room in jamies. It was an experience that I never forgot. I know that there are some women that just could care less about ever having children, but for those who desire children that desire can be more than life itself. I give you my highest hope that you will conceive and have beautiful children and that you may enjoy them for many years to come. Just because it doesn't make any sense to some people, doesn't make it wrong. Flamey
