Thanks for your query,
Sinsle ovary usually does not cause much problem in fertility.Endometrial TB can lead to implantation failure and miscarriage. It causes a mild endometritis or inflammation of the endometrial cavity. It needs to be treated first. Chances of pregnancy are there but less.Better to avoid pregnancy while being on these drugs. Because these drugs come under category C drugs in pregnancy according to FDA. So there may be some harm to babies like hearing loss, neural tube defects, eye defects etc. So better plan a pregnancy after completion of the AKT 4 course. IVF procedures may be needed in some cases.

Good Luck..
Hope i helped you..
