Thanks for query,
As your one tube is open so there are full chance of having pregnancy.
As per instruction of your doctor you can try for pregnancy after 3 months and when pregnancy is there they may change some medicine of your AKT-4 schedule.
Ok and bye.

welcome to hcm

thanks for the query

in your case TB is early, so have good chance of spontaneous conception, once treatment is over.also your one yube is patent

its very important to diagnose whether or not the TB has involved the uterus (endometrium).so it is important to have a biopsy from the uterus

If the biopsy from uterus is positive for TB on histopathology, then ur chances of spontaneous conception are very less but, if histopathology is negative for TB but PCR is positive, then chances of spontaneous conception is good

so it all depends upon ur histopathology report

You have to undergo an endometrial biopsy for PCR Myc TB and histopathology after a minimum of total 4 to6 months of treatment to see whether or not it has become negative that will show response to treatment

according to my opinion its better not to conceive before treatment is complete

you can take opinion of another specialist about it

take care
