Mostly No: Unless the abortion was traumatic which resulted in damage to your reproductive organs, there should be no problems in terms of you getting pregnant. If you are concerned that there might be damage to your reproductive organs, please contact your ob/gyn and get checked out.

Multiple abortions: You should be able to get pregnant again without difficulty if both abs were done properly--people can get pregnant after multiple deliveries, after all. However, it is important to use contraception and not get pregnant until you want to continue to term.
