Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Better to avoid pregnancy while being on these drugs.
As these drugs come under category C drugs in pregnancy according to FDA, these can harm the baby if taken in early pregnancy.
Side effects like hearing loss, neural tube defects, ophthalmic abnormalities etc can occur to the baby.
So better to plan a pregnancy after completion of the course.


Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

Hi,

Genital tuberculosis contributes to around 16 to 20% of infertility cases.
The chances of fertility will depend on the functioning of reproductive organs like, patency of the tubes, condition of the endometrium etc.
So if the XXXXXXX structures are normal and infection gets cured with treatment possibility of conception increases.
Though you are having only one functional tube the chance of fertility is still there.
With increasing age the ovarian reserve will decrease which can affect the fertility rate.
But by carefully tracking the ovulation and planning unprotected intercourse around that time the chances of fertility will increase.


Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
