Partner suffering with TB, had blood in the mouth post intercourse. Contraction chances? partner has been found to be suffering with TB. We just had intercourse once and during that i found that she s is getting blood in her mouth. After forcing she told me that she is suffering with TB.

There are no symptoms showing up till now and it has been a week now. Please suggest me as soon as possible. Thanks
