Infertility: A "D&E " is a complicated procedure which can cause debris to lodge in the fallopian tubes , thereby preventing fertilization because the sperm cannot fertilize the egg secondary to "blocked tubes". Assuming that you are ovulating regularly, and the partner has a normal sperm count, see your healthcare provider and ask about an x-ray of your tubes (hysterosalpingogram), which can open both tubes.
