Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am glad to know that your wife is conceiving without any problem. However if you are PCR positive and you know if the TB is not drug resistant then there is a high chance that you will be cured of the disease. However your carrier status may persist. I advise you to consult a good infectious disease physician who can start you on antitubercular medications as soon as possible. I would not think that if your wife is not TB positive there is no risk to the baby or your wife. In the meantime it might be good to stay away from your pregnant wife till you are not infectious after a certain period of time of starting to take the antitubercular medications.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
