I wish I knew, sister Zazi, but I'm not familiar with the possible TB treatments and their possible impact on pregnancy. I would think that if she has finished the treament, and is clear of TB, there shouldn't be any problem with a pregnancy starting now --- but you'd best ask my colleague Cyberdoc about this, or maybe also Gynaedoc
