There is no literature regarding the contraception practices in female CF patients. A chart review identified 69 women with CF of whom two thirds were using contraception. Eleven different forms of contraception were being used with the oral contraceptive pill the preferred method. Despite theoretical concerns regarding efficacy and toxicity, the choices of contraception are similar to those of the general U.S. population.
