Write your answer hereHi,

Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Your doctor is wrong. You cannot go for IVF when your PCR for tuberculosis is positive. Please visit a physician and take complete course of TB.

After completion of treatment again repeat PCR for TB. Only if negative go for IVF.

IVF when TB PCR is positive generally results in negative. Hence loss of money and emotions.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
