Dear Anon
If you took your TB medication and your sputum is clear, you are healed and not infective and there is no reason why you should not be able to have kids. You can go for regular yearly check ups to ensure that it does not come back. (If you also have HIV the HIV virus may be transmitted to the baby). Some people get TB in the womb, this may then be difficult to concieve as it may affect the tubes, this is however very rare.
