A member asked:

Affected by tuberculosis before and had medicines fot tht and cured. will that cause birth defects in baby conceiving aftr 10 years?dont have tb now

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Tuberculosis: Very unlikely to affect your baby. The one thing you should be aware of is that tuberculosis may be treated effectively to remove symptoms of active disease, but that you may still have foci of inactive tubercle bacilli left in your body that have the potential, although unlikely, to reactivate later in life. Good luck and have a great baby.
