  • How long have you been trying? Are you charting your cycles?

  • When was the last time you were examined by an OBGYN? Go & see one and ask questions.

  • Perhaps a physician would be able to actually look inside your uterus and find out....

  • You should really ask this question to your doctor. The two incidents could be related or not it depends on other factors. Discuss with your doctor or a fertility specialist.

  • Many women who have had an abortion (more so if the Dr. was not experienced) have scar tissue and it causes problems with trying to conceive. It can happen for a d&c also so it is not just abortion. Some women also just scar more easily and so even small procedures can cause infertility.

  • I don't know the reason but agree that it could be scar tissue. I had an abortion and then 9 years later I got pregnant. The thing is that I had had a leep precedure right before I got pregnant. My mom and I discussed and she made the comment that maybe there was scar tissue that got removed and then amazingly I got pregnant right away. So be positive, it can happen, it did for me!
