User :   I am 27yrs old and married for 2 years.I had a missed abortion in December 2009 as the heart did not develop.After that I never had periods. I always had taken Deviry 10 mg tablets for getting periods. From November 2010 I am undergoing Infertility treatments.
I have Hypothyridism and taking Thyronorm 25 mg and TSH is under control now.
Also, I have PCOS and I am on Glycomet 500, Ecospirin 150mg,evion forte 600 mg,Trental 400 mg,folsafe 5 mg,F-gam.Other than this, recently doctor asked me to take Progynova 2mg (2-2-2).My endomitrium thickness is not going over 8 mm and it is hazzy.Doctor gave me Deviry 10 mg tablet for 10 days alongwith progynova and said I will get my periods after it.He said he thinks I might have Tuberculosis as endomitrium is hazzy and since the thickness isn't increasing.He asked me to get a biopsy done by taking a little something from my Uterus on the 6th day of my next periods.If I have TB, is there any chance I can have a successful pregnancy and child? How long does the treatment for TB take?

Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   TB PCR that is right
User :   ok and wat could be the success rate
Doctor :   and Histology and TB culture
Doctor :   It is very good test
Doctor :   After the treatment pregnancy rate is is good
Doctor :   I do not know the numbers
User :   oh gud to know that
Doctor :   But confirmation of TB must be achieved
Doctor :   because it gives a clue why u r not gettinging pregant and why ur not getting cycles
Doctor :   But the success rate of pregancy is pretty good after 9 months of TB medicines
User :   can there be any other reason why the endomitrium is not getting thicker than 8 mm? and it is also hazzy in appearance
Doctor :   May be the ovary is not realseing egg
Doctor :   and thus second phase of cycles(progesterone phase is lacking)
Doctor :   2. may be due to TB
User :   ok.
User :   Thanks Doctor
