Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic,

You have not provided us details of how exactly the doctor diagnosed as Uterine TB. I would presume that she diagnosed based on clinical features & Ultrasound scan/hysteroscopy(if it was done), or she has done a PCR/ZN stain of the blood sample. As it would take 4 to 12 weeks for culture report to come (which is a conclusive evidence for TB disease), it is not advisable to wait for it and then start AKT4. Hence what your doctor has done is right.
The duration of AKT4 ranges from 9 to 12months, which will be decided by the treating doctor.
These drugs have a list of side effects which you must be aware of.
