Shaping the future for women with CF

The Cystic Fibrosis Reproductive and Sexual Health Collaborative supports patient-centered conversations about issues that impact women with CF.

About Us

CFReSHC (Say it like “C-Fresh”)


Our collaborative engages women with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) as equal partners with clinicians and researchers to develop patient-driven research projects.


Patient-Partners (Women with CF) work with CF clinicians, researchers, and other advocates to improve sexual and reproductive health resources, healthcare, and knowledge for women with CF.

Why Women with CF?

As women with CF enter new life phases they have more questions than answers. CFRESHC examines the pertinent issues facing CF women such as: body image, family building, pregnancy, motherhood, infertility, hormone changes, incontinence, menopause and more.

A Partnership between Patients and Providers

Women with CF are entering uncharted territory, as they are living longer than ever before. Our unique collaborative of patients and doctors is working to educate clinicians about the variety of issues that affect adult females with CF.

The CF Reproductive and Sexual Health Guide

Written by patients and for the whole CF community to educate clinicians and patients about issues that affect adult females with CF and to facilitate conversations between health care providers and patients.
