Influence Of TB Osteomyelitis On Male Fertility?
Afternoon, I want to ask … my husband has TB osteomyelitis … and whether it affects me or not to get pregnant … thank you, please input
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis and can attack the lungs, brain, bones, and glands in the body. While osteomyelitis itself is an inflammatory condition of the bones due to bacteria. Management of this condition usually requires patients to routinely take the drug for at least 6 months without stopping.
Among several risk factors for a person to get tuberculosis are:
Being in the same environment as tuberculosis seniors and children People with decreased immunity, such as people with HIV / AIDS or currently undergoing chemotherapy Being in a slum environment with less circulation and sunlight
Regarding your question, having tuberculosis, or TB osteomyelitis in your husband's case, will not affect male fertility. In other words, you can and may get pregnant even if your husband has TB. But what you need to pay attention to is whether you also contracted TB by your husband or not. Because if so, that means you also have to take drugs and TB in pregnancy will undergo different treatments because the type of drug and the dose must be adjusted so as not to harm the fetus and the womb.
Therefore, our advice is that you should consult about your plans to have a baby with a doctor who has been treating your husband or a pulmonary specialist, so that at least you can check whether you are actually in TB or not, and whether your husband's condition is still vulnerable. to catch TB from time to time to you.
Meanwhile, your husband should wear a mask while at home, make sure that the house has good circulation and the sunlight is shining on the room. Open all the curtains and windows, then live a healthy lifestyle to further support your immune system by eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, avoiding cigarette smoke and stress, and taking regular breaks and exercising regularly. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
