Not directly: Abortion does not cause infertility directly. However, one of the methods for abortion is a suction currettage, which has the risk of causing scarring or adhesions in the uterine cavity, which may contribute to infertility. This risk however, is low.

No: Absolutely no relation between these two things. We don't know why fibroids form in some women but not others, but there's no relationship between having a medical or surgical abortion and the formation of fibroids.
