hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.IGM antibodies when high indicate new infection by an organism.These can cross over via placenta and harm fetus hence with such high titres it was advised for you not to conceive.Wait till levels come down .Use barrier methods and also ask about non hormonal pills since hormonal pills are ineffective with some anti-tb drugs.Take care.

Dear Doctor,
I am a male, 30 years old and married 2 years ago. Recently doctor diagnosed azoospermia. I used to take corticosteroids (prednisone) for skin infection since 2 years. Even about 45 days back also I took that medicine. Medicine is one of the reasons for azoospermia? There was no suspect in VDRL, HbsAg, HIV, TSH, TB antibodies IgM, complete blood profile tests and are normal. No one my family having azoospermic condition. One doctor is advicing to go for TESA. Is TESA necessary without fidning the right cause of Azoospermia. Is Azoospermia curable by medicine? Do you prescribe any doctor in Hyderabad, India?
Thank you for understanding my problem

Regards,
Pras
