Will I have trouble getting pregnant after having a leep to remove the entire top layer of my cervical tissue from CIN 3? Will scar tissue be a factor

In brief: Depends, likely no
As a reproductive specialist, I have seen all forms of leep surgery.
Some procedures have been aggressive and removed a large portion of cervix that might affect cervical mucous production and thus pregnancy. Other's appear to have total healing. Your doctor should be able to look at your cervix and give you a good idea. Insemination could possibly be necessary in the first case. Most do well!

In brief: Rarely
Sometimes the cervical canal can scar and form a barrier. You'll know this if you have considerable menstrual pain & no bleeding.
Your gyn can check this easily. I worry more about a short cervix in pregnancy with risks of incompetent cervix & early delivery. Both rare & can be easily found with exam & ultrasounds respectively.
