Hello,
I understand your concern.
I am Dr. Arun Tank, infectious diseases specialist, answering your query.

In my opinion you should undergo USG abdomen, and culture, sensitivity from the menstrual bleeding. GeneXpert is also desicisve investigation tool.

GeneXpert not only diagnose, but also gives resistant pattern to you.

If it detects TB, you are not clear from the TB and if the resistant pattern is also detected you need to take the further treatment , keeping in mind the resistant pattern.

Please take the complete treatment to diagnose and treat.withdrawal of treatment can create resistant bacteria which cause difficulty in further treatment.


I will be happy to answer your further concern, you can ask me on bit.ly/DrArun.
Thank you.
