Brief Answer:
It should be fine

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking.

Tuberculosis is a chronic infection needing 6-9 months of treatment,If you have already completed the course you can plan the pregnancy any time.I do not think so that postponing it is warranted.

Only word of caution is you need to check your liver profile as long term treatment can worsen it and pregnancy because of cholestatic nature can also have adverse effect on liver.Just be sure that liver is recovered well enough.

Thanks, Please let me know if you need more information.
