Thanks for the query.

Yes, non-tuberculous mycobacteria can also cause infertility by affecting the endometrium and tubes etc.
So, you have take treatment for it.
The treatment options usually involve macrolid antibiotics, ethambutol, rifampicin etc.
The schedule of the drugs and duration of treatment will depend on the severity of the disease.
So you consult your doctor and take treatment for it.
After treatment, you have to undergo hysterosalpingography once to check the patency of the tubes, then you can plan for pregnancy.
