Detailed Question:

Hello madam, 
I had an abortion that is almost 4-5 months back. That was a missed abortion as when I was 11 weeks I started spotting and when I diagnosed I was told that the scanner shows that the fetus growth stopped on 7th week and she cannot hear any heartbeat. May I know what causes such problems and how to avoid it in future? 
I had also some test of hormonal level and everything I found in me was normal. Is the male sperms are required to be tested as well?? My husband had a vercocele surgery when he was a some 11 year old. Does it cause problems in hormones? I also often noticed that if he has sex on daily basis his ejaculates lesser sperm. Please explain me if anything is required to be done for it. 
One more question is, soon after my pill abortion I had started bleeding and that lasted for almost 25 days. After that, after 12 days I again got my period and it retained for 10 days similarly its four months now and I'm getting period on proper time but it lasts for 12 days or so and I also feel some discomfort in my abdomen sometimes. Is it normal?

Yes, this looks quite normal. You can start planning for the next pregnancy and start Folic acid tablets. Meanwhile, you can get yourself tested with an Ultrasound and a thyroid function test. A missed abortion can be due to many reasons and though most women try to find a cause, there is usually no problem other than the fetus itself. Most abortions happen because the fetus is itself abnormal and hence not compatible with life either genetically or on a chromosomal level. Hence there is nothing you or your doctor can do about it. Make sure to start folate tablets to prevent any deformities and consult once with test reports before planning to conceive since your periods are quite prolonged.
