You are suffering from recurrent miscarriage. Here you can do some additional investigation like TORCH profile, anti phospholipid syndrome, test for chromosomal abnormality and cervical incompetence.
As your period cycle is irregular, then you should have to regularize period by correction of progesterone deficiency. Therefore,you need to take Utovlan (norethisterone) from D1 to D21 and after that 1 week off. In this time, you get your period. It should be continued 3-6 cycles.
Avoid stress, take healthy diet with Vit-E & Folic acid supplements, control body wt, proper sleeping and maintain genital hygiene properly.
Be well and take care
