Cystic Fibrosis

An extremely high percentage of men with cystic fibrosis (CF) have what is known as congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) which causes infertility. There are procedures now available which can help some men become biological fathers: you should initially speak to your GP and ask to be referred to a specialist who will carry out the appropriate tests to determine the best way to proceed.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has a huge amount of information on this condition, including a downloadable booklet on fertility issues for those with the condition.
