Hello pristhan,
Normally Tuberculosis of uterus will also be associated with TB of other genital organs.
TB of female genital organs itself has a very high possibility of infertility.
If TB uterus causes Asherman syndrome, it causes numerous adhesions inside the uterine cavity so the womb will not be suitable to hold fetus even when embryo is formed (probability of fertilization is very low).
I am afraid, your doctor his absolutely right in saying that your only option is surrogacy. You need to convince yourself for surrogacy or adoption.
Hope I am of some help to you
