possibly with treatment for TORCH infections, you will not cured of present infection and also recurrence can be prevented,
you have to maintain thyroid levels within normal as fluctuations in thyroid hormone levels can also cause miscarriage, normal TSH level should be less than 4.5mIU/L,
so with these precautions possibly you can have full term pregnancy next time,
you take folic acid tablets before conception and plan pregnancy preferably 2 months after completion of treatment.
take care.
