Customer Question
I'm aware this isn't related...
I'm aware this isn't related to HIV or AIDS, I didn't know where to post this question. My skin test for TB and blood test came positive, so my doctor is suspecting latent TB, and my chest Xray is clear.
We are trying to have a baby and planning to undergo fertility Tx. Will the treatment for latent TB have any negative effect on me while I'm undergoing fertility Tx? Whatelse should i know? I'm a 33yr old F.
Thanks

You should not worry on this count.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
