Thanks for writing in.

As you are taking anti TB drug for last 2 months, you can have sexual intercourse now.
Once treatment is started chances of transmission of the disease is less likely.

Untreated cases are more prone to give infection. Continue the treatment as advised by your physician.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health.
