Can laser ablation cause extra scar tissue in the womb?

Yes: Any type of ablation in the uterus essentially burns the inner lining of the uterus, and this is a type of scar. An embryo cannot implant properly on the burned area and can lead to a very high risk pregnancy.

What type of laser?: I assume you mean a laser ablation of the cervix? If so, yes, this can cause scar tissue on the womb but may be an effective therapy for cervical pathology.
