Husband had mouth infection for months I miscarried 12/13 tried again late but neg pt could it be infection?

Unclear: It is unclear whether or not your husbands mouth infection had anything to do with your miscarriage.

If you never went to the drs after a miscarriage could you get an infection or an sti?

Yes: Most of the time everything will be fine however. I would venture to guess that most miscarriages end without a doctor's visit. However sometimes the miscarriage is incomplete and some tissue remains inside. This can lead to a serious infection. Miscarriages in and of themselves don't cause stis, but it's certainly possible to have one that is not diagnosed if you don't go to the doctor. ...Read more

If u conceived a year ago but had a natural miscarried without infection, been ttc 7 months after with no success, high chance of blocked tubes?

No: If there was no infection, there is no reason to think that there is an increased risk of blocked tubes.
