Dear Madhavi

Since your endometrial biopsy is negative for AFB, being mantoux positive will not have much effect on conception. IVF procedure can be done safely while you are on anti Tb drugs. Even if you conceive, these drugs will not harm the baby as long as you are not taking streptomycin.
Hope for the best.
