Since you have had genetic testing also, it is not a cause for worry. The reason for your repeated abortions should be ascertained first. If hormones are deficient, they may be supplemented. Genetic defects should also be ruled out. If you are normally ovulating now, it is not too late to conceive. Even if you are not ovulating, you can be induced and monitored for ovulation and conception. Consult an infertility specialist and get investigated. Wish you good luck.
