Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I went through the history that you mentioned and also the reports that you have attached.
Herpes 1 and 2 IGG is positive and CMV infection is also positive.
The above infections might have contributed to the abortion. I would recommend you to first get yourself treated before you can plan for pregnancy. There is high chance of abortion if you try pregnancy right now. Secondly even if pregnancy stays there will be a risk of the child having mental retardation, which will be very bad.
Treat yourself first and pregnancy can still wait.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
