Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

There is complete cure for Tuberculosis.., but TB PCR is positive suggestive of still there is TB bacilli present iin the body..., whether active or inactive the report will shoe positive,... hence you need to continue the Anti Tuberculosis treatment for still more 3 to 6 months,.. not to worry , consult the Tb chest diseases doctor and take opinion for further treatment.. only after complete treatment it is good to conceive..
Hope I have answered your question..
