Thanks for your query.
Since you are already into 11th week without any heart beat, its better to go for surgical evacuation of uterus. There is no point in waiting for more time.
After D&C get a detailed evaluation like thyroid profile, TORCH infection, blood sugar, karyotyping of both you and your husband.
However, even after 2 consecutive abortions, chances of successful pregnancy is 80%. So be tension free .
Hope this helps.
