In brief: TB and fertility
Tubal blockage from tuberculosis is easily treated with ivf.
Endometrial injury in more severe forms might require a gestational carrier. The primary tuberculosis infection should be treated prior to pregnancy. Assessment of the fallopian tubes and the uterine endometrial lining can measure potential for fertility after ivf.
