Hi thanks for your question.
No TB OF uterus is neighther contageous nor sexually transmitted diseases.TB is contageous only when it is pulmonary tuberculosis that is TB of lungs and that too when it is an open case which means that the bacteria are present in the sputum of patient and he /she is sheding the bacteria with cough. Patients of open TB are rendered non contageous just by 15 days of treatment.
Hope this answers your question.
