A positive TORCH test simply means the patient has positive antibody levels against that particular infection and is therefore protected against them.

Certain infections called TORCH ( which stands for TOxoplasmosis, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus and Herpes) , may be a cause for a single miscarriage, but are NOT a cause for repeated miscarriages. 

In fact a positive test is actually a good sign and suggests that the patient is protected against that infection because she has been exposed to that infection in the past. 

There is absolutely nothing to worry regarding this TORCH test and repeated miscarriages have no relation with this.

It would be better to look for other causes of miscarriages rather than getting worried about these positive IGg tests.
