Thanks for your query.
The patient is suffering from recurrent pregnancy loss and a bad obstetric history.
there could be various reasons for this.
Ideally the aborted fetus should have been sent for a detailed evaluation.
Commonest cause of such abortions are genetic causes.
AUtoimmune disorders are another reason.
Hormonal imbalances and intrauterine infections should be ruled out.
You should consult a Genetic counsellor and have detailed evaluation as suggested by the Counsellor.
Please do not plan further pregnancy without the testing.
take regular folic acid supplements.
Take care.
