Brief Answer:
Normal reports

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your questions and understand your concerns.
The reports of Antiphospholipid antibodies and TORCH are completely normal. They have no role in the miscarriages your wife had.
You both can plan pregnancy 6 weeks after the last abortion. She should take folic acid5 mg a day daily as taking it in preconceptional and periconceptional period decreases the risk of congenital anomalies and abortion in the fetus.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you both good health.
