Can I conceive after treating tuberculosis of uterus?

Q: I am a 30 years old woman, suffering from tuberculosis in uterus and one of my tubes is blocked. I am taking medicines for treating tuberculosis. Can I conceive after 6 months?

A:Once tuberculosis has been diagnosed in the uterus, the tubes are usually involved in all cases. One of your tubes is already blocked. The other one though open may not be functioning to transport the egg to the uterus. After completing 6 months of treatment, you need to undergo a uterine biopsy again to check the pathology report, AFB culture to see that you are responding to treatment. After a minimum of 9 months of treatment, you can undergo a hysterolaparoscopy by infertility expert. Accordingly the expert will be able to give you an idea regarding possible conception through IVF-ET (test tube baby). If you do not have TB anywhere else, your husband needs to have his semen tested to rule out genital TB in him (something that most people forget to do).
