sorry to hear that dear. tc

torch is a group of infectious agents that can pass from mother to unborn baby. it may result in repeated abortions or if baby survives is associated with specific congenital anomalies in the baby.
if your doctor suspects it, you need to get tested for it. kindly talk to your gynecologist and seek counseling for it.

Get yourself vaccinated for torch much before the pregnancy.

Take a gap of at least 1 year before your next pregnancy and take your folic acid and haemoglobin, calcium check well in advance.

The TORCH panel of tests is to check for a range of infections which can affect the unborn child and one of the results is a miscarriage. It is recommended for every woman who has a miscarriage in the first trimester to ensure that it is cleared before she attempts to get pregnant again.
