Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, tuberculosis is not a sexually transmitted disease. Mainly it involves the lungs. But in some cases like your wife, it occurs in the intestine. For this, infected cow’s milk is thought to be a cause.

So, there is no chance of getting infected by sexual act. You can do sex with your wife.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have another question.
