Thanks for writing to us.
The TB_PCR test is done to detect any genital tuberculosis. It is not related to the surgery for ectopic pregnancy that she had earlier. In case of such genital infections, blocked tubes are likely cause of infertility.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
