Thanks for writing in.
You seem to be suffering from tuberculosis which has affected your reproductive organs ( like the uterus, fallopian tubes ). This is usually treated with anti-tubercular drugs like isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrizinamide and ethambutol. The treatment is given for 6-12 months (depending upon the response) and treatment must be taken regularly without fail. However, I would like to inform you that if this bacterium has infected your fallopian tubes, then the damage is irreversible and your only option is In vitro fertilization. However, treatment must be started and completed to prevent the disease from progressing.
I wish you the very best.

Hi you will have to undergo treatment for koch, will have to take med. for 9 mths.
whether you will conceive or not.that is dependent upon your fallopian tubes .
Fallopians are damaged and conception is not possible .you can try IVF after your treatment.
