Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

its good, that you know about your condition well... you need to get treated for all the infections first... then ou must go for check up and get your IgG and IgM levels of CMV,Rubella, Torch, and any other STD... once the levels will decrease then you must again repeat and confirm that no infection must be there, then you can get conceived,.. All the above treatment may take about 6 months .,, you need to be patient and achieve it..
Hope I have answered your question..
