No: TB neck lymphadenitis won't cause infertility but if your tubes are also involved it can cause problems. You should be able to conceive and have healthy babies after finishing treatment. If you have any problems, you doctor should know about the TB. It is a simple test at that point to check for tubal damage. I had TB myself at 16 and have had no problems since. Hope you do as well!

Neck lymph node: TB infection or TB treatment drugs should not affect future fertility. Ask your doctor for specific side effects of your TB drugs.
