Actually chances are higher for pregnancy soon after an abortion. There are many cases in which women didnt listen to their doctors and had sex soon after having an abortion and winding up pregnant all over again.
Also itis EXTREMELY rare for abortion to cause problems for future pregnancies(that is if the doctor's advice is followed and the abortion is done right). So far the research that says women have problems later when trying to have children tends to be with those that have serial abortions(many abortions).

That is only said because all surgeries have risks. If you do a surgical abortion with D&C there is a risk of them scarring the lining of the uterus preventing future pregnancies. This doesn't happen often, unless as already stated, you have numerous abortions. However, if you plan to have it done, please go to a reputable place. Make sure you ask a lot of questions about the procedure, the doctors, cleanliness, and post care.
