Why Tuberculosis Leads to Infertility?

Endometrial Tuberculosis is  difficult to diagnose. Woman who are infected with Endometrial TB, it is often asymptomatic or presents with non-specific symptoms. The manifestation of the disease is usually different in women of reproductive age and postmenopausal women. Most common symptoms in young women are menstrual disturbance, or pelvic pain. The menstrual cycle may be normal and undisturbed in some cases of Genital tuberculosis. Amenorrhoea (absence of periods or scanty flow) from genital tuberculosis occurs due to complete destruction of the basal endometrial layer. Symptoms which commonly occur in a postmenopausal woman are irregular bleeding, pyometra, or leucorrhoea (white discharge)
Extensive involvement of the endometrium leads to formation of ulcerative, granular, or fungating lesions. with time depending upon the extent of damage the endometrial cavity may be obliterated with intrauterine adhesions
