Hi Welcome to healthcare Magic

There are many causes for the recurrent abortions... TORCH infections (Toxoplasmosis, Rubella,chlamydia, Herpes) are coomon in first trimester, uterine abnormalities in second trimester... Thyroid disorders (hyperthyroidism) is now emerging one.. hence before becoming pregnant you needed to clinically evaluated and corrected.. only then you can have safe confinement..
