Maybe: Cystic fibrosis is a condition that may cause the blackage of the fallopian tubes and thus may inhibit normal fertility. CF however, has a wide variation in how it may impact each individual and may allow for normal conception. I have several patients that have conceived without any art. Ectopic pregnancy is a significant risk and genetic counseling is a must as this is an inhereted condition.
