Thanks for your query.

Among above investigations you have mentioned, you have positive mantoux test (Tuberculosis).But leucocyte count is not so high.

Following are my advice and comments:

1) Mantoux test positive indicates tuberculosis (TB). Genital tract TB is a worst infection which causes infertility. Mantoux detects TB in your body but not exactly which part of body.

2) Generally 2 out of 10 women suffering from TB are infertile. More than 50 % of women with infertility have TB.

3) When your gynecologist wants to do a histopathological exmination, she might wanted to check for tuberculosis which is correct method.

4) Please request your gynecologist to do following investigations with your D&C sample: 1. Histopathology 2. PCR(Polymerase chain reaction) for TB mRNA 3) Culture of endometrial tissue for TB.

5) If your examination turns out to be positive for TB you may have to take 6 month treatmment for TB which is necessary and important.

I hope I answered your questions. I will be available for any followup queries you have. If no more queries, please accept my answer and close this discussion.

Hi, thanks for writing.

Your husband actually need not take any medications as everything is normal. The motility is not significantly low. I don’t recommend taking any medication. Especially antibiotic should not be taken for one month. I see no necessity to take medications.

Hope I answered all your questions. If you do not have any more queries, please close this discussion.
