My husband and I are trying to start a family. His daughter from his previous marriage has CF. He has the common gene. His ex was tested for the gene and it came back negative but obviously she had some form of the mutation they just couldn't detect. I was tested and mine came back negative as well. Having seen the struggles that come with being a carrier of CF I really do not ever want our child to have to go through that. My question is...Is it worth just taking the risk and hoping that our baby does not have cf or is it smarter to look into IVF and other forms to avoid the possibility of that. Any opinions or advice is much appreciated!

Hi Ashley & welcome to the forum. I happened to see your post & wanted to say hello. I wish I had a crystal ball & could say everything will be fine. I understand your fears & will say I cannot blame you a bit for being so worried about the what if. How does your husband feel about everything you have posted above? Is he willing to take a chance, how does he feel about IVF? I am sorry I don't have answers for you but I would really give this some heavy thought.

Take care.
