Hello dear,

Thank you for your contact to health care magic.

I read and understand your concern.

I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.

There is no where mentioned in the report that you ate having positive TB report. All the words described by you is the general guidelines mentioned in the all PCR reports.

So in my advice you should review the report.

In case if it's positive for TB. Than even you should not worry. It is completely curable infection.

Only thing is you have to take the complete treatment. If you complete the treatment infection will go thereafter.

Your husband can be infected depending on your clinical condition. If your infection is severe than you can give infection to your husband.

I advice you should avoid sexual intercourse till you are cured. In other case you can do it with the condom.

Once you can treated all your problem will be solved except fibrosis. Fibrosis on the genital system can be released manually.

I will be happy to answer your further concern on

Thank you,
Dr Arun Tank
