thanks for your query.
I will briefly outline a work up which you can then follow, in consultation with a reputed Infertility specialist.

1. Thorough evaluation of previous abortion. Ideally, the abortus tissue should have been sent for chromosomal analysis. You should be evaluated for genetic defects alongwith your partner, hormonal deficiencies, uterine anomalies, autoimmune causes, infections etc - as these lead to abortions.
2. Basic laboratory workup - complete blood count, viral markers, hormones like LH, FSH, TSH .
3. Tests for ovarian reserve - pelvic ultrasound with antral follicular count, AMH, follicular study documenting ovulation.
4. Semen analysis of your partner
5. Fallopian tube testing, ideally in the form of a hystero laparoscopy.

Based on the abnormalities detected on this workup, you should go for natural cycles/ ovulation inducing agents/ or ART ( assisted reproductive technologies ) in the form of IUI or IVF.

Take folic acid supplements, maintain a healthy, active lifestyle, maintain a healthy BMI, and do not yield to stress/ anxiety.
