Sorry for your loss. No, it shouldn't. I may be a bad example b/c I don't think I am very fertile and most of my life I have been irregular. However, I had a miscarriage in 2000 and also a D&C. With a different man (my husband) I had a baby at age 37 with him. Thinking she was a fluke and didn't think it would happen again, WRONG. I am now 39 and 10 weeks pregnant with another one. (My last...ah hem...due to age factor.) So, never assume. As long as your doctor (which I'm sure is totally experienced and capable) was careful and did a decent job on the D&C, you should be FINE. It can happen but it is quite a rare occurrence for damage to be caused during that procedure. Just be sure to abstain from intercourse until your doctor gives you the ok after having the D&C. Having sex too early, before your body has recovered CAN cause problems. Best to you. Hope this helps.
