Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

AKT4 is a combination therapy that is used for treatment of tuberculosis, it would assist if there is evidence of tuberculosis infection within the reproductive organs.

Though your friend is a doctor, it may be best to follow the advice of your gynaecologist, you can consider asking her/him whether any such treatment is necessary.

In terms of the IVF, it is a safe procedure. It involves the use of hormones to induce mulitple egg production, these are removed and fertilised with the sperm. The fertilised eggs are kept for optimal growth ,then when thought stable will be placed inside the uterus.

I wish you the best and hope this helps
