Understanding the Genetics Behind Cystic Fibrosis

If you think you may be a carrier, talk with your doctor or a geneticist

Are you a carrier of the cystic fibrosis gene? Does the disease run in your family history? Do you have a child with cystic fibrosis and are planning for a second pregnancy? If any of these questions are relatable to you, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional who understands your family planning needs. A geneticist or cystic fibrosis specialist will have the best advice for you depending on your personal situation.
