I had 4 abortions no complications at 6weeks. One at 9 now i have had 3 miscarriages are my abortions to blame for this :( HELP! ?

No: I'm sorry for your loss. While your numbers are not exactly clear to me (4 abortions @ 6-9wks followed by 3 miscarriages? for 7 pregnancies total?), there are few correctable/preventable or known causes of repeat miscarriages.

I had 4 induced abortions. No complications, menstrual is normal have had 3 miscarriages after. Did i mess up my endometrial lining? & is that fixable

I had 4 induced abortions. No complications, menstrual is normal have had 3 miscarriages after. Did i mess up my endometrial lining? & is that fixable

No: It isn't the endometrium that is the source of the repeated miscarriages. It is either a genetic issue or cervical incompetence. The cervix may be opening too soon in the 2nd trimester and may need to have a suture placed(cerclage).Genetic issues can be tested at the time of the miscarriage with the products of conception or later with blood testing (TORCH titer). ...Read more

My wife had miscarriage at 11th week, no complications.  Now its been 1 month, can we start trying to conceive again or wait more? If yes, how long?
