Can TB treatment lead to delay in conceiving ?

hi doc, i got married 6 months back. i m 30 and my wife is 23. she is in good health. for the last one year she had been a TB (lungs) patient but she took 8 months strict treatment for TB and now she has completed her treatment in march 2011. later we consulted the concerned doctor as we were planning for a baby and as expected, the doctor replied us to go for pregnancy . However during the treatment we were strictly advised to avoid pregnancy and to use condom. which we did. now my problem is that i have been having sex with my wife without condom in order to pregnant her for the last two months but she is not conceiving. to be frank, she has taken contraceptive pill (unwanted 72) on the wedding night and later on 11th day after. as a result she had unusual bleeding for nine days. but now every thing is normal and she has periods regularly. could it be the reason for not conceiving if so plz advice me or otherwise tell me what to do i want to have a baby.

welcome to healthcaremagic
2 months time is not much to be worried
if you are anxious both of consult gynecologist and get investigations done to know your wife's ovulaion and patent tubes and normal endometrium histology
you get your semen analysis and see that it is normal
be under doctor's treatment till you get result

Recent questions on Sexually transmitted disease

doctor1 MD

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!

I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?

Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
