Can People With Intestinal TB Be Pregnant?
I want to ask, when can TB patients be pregnant? have to wait how long after the treatment is finished can you get pregnant ???
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
In general, doctors will advise you to wait at least 2 months for a new therapy to start trying to get pregnant, although it would be better if you wait until treatment is finished before starting your pregnancy program. The medication given for tuberculosis therapy is safe enough to be given to pregnant women (except streptomycin), but that does not mean it does not have the potential to cause certain side effects. If you can indeed wait after you finish your TB treatment, you should wait first.
After 2 months of treatment, discuss with the doctor who treats you whether you are allowed to start a pregnant program or not. If indeed the doctor who treats you gives the go-ahead to get pregnant, from a month before planning a pregnancy start consuming folic acid to help prevent birth defects in the baby.
If you decide to wait for treatment to finish pregnant, then you can immediately plan for pregnancy as soon as you stop taking the drug.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
