thank you for your query.

TORCH is a group of perinatal infections which affect the fetus.
these infections if treated thoroughly once have lesser chance of repeating itself.
hence i would advise you to complete the anti-biotic regimen advised by the doctor and also screen for TORCH the next time you start trying to get pregnant.

thank you,
wishing you good health
