Why are tuberculosis tablets prescribed for fallopian tube block/pregnancy?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Philip Chenette
37 years experience in Fertility Medicine
TB and fertility: Tuberculosis is a known, but rare, cause of tubal blockage. Once diagnosed, a cure is unusual. Tb pills are used to stop progression, and prevent the illness from progressing elsewhere, but generally cannot solve the fertility problem. Ivf can be considered.
