IVF, tubular pregnancy, TB, AKT3 tablets

Hi , My wife is 37 years old and we are trying to have a second baby through IVF . Last two times she had tubular preganancy and our doctor is doubting she may have TB. But in culture check no Tb found. Still the doctor is insisting for AKT3 tablets and my wife is taking the same from last one month. Now we are going to do IVF next month and doctor is telling to countinue the AKT 3 also along with other medicines. Is this will affect the health of the baby ? We are really worried. Kindly advice. Our doctor is telling AKT 3 doesnt have any side effects.

TB isnt easy to diagnose, but strong clinical suspicion may help start some therapy. TB is important cause of infertility, if not treated properly, risk of TB even to baby may be much more than risk with antibiotics. The patient may need to continue on folic acid and pyridoxine supplements while on AKT3 and also keep a close watch on the list of side effects on a monthly basis. It does have side effects but they may not be in your case, to a significant seriousness to stop the medicines.
