In brief: Possibly

Yes, it is possible.
Laparoscopy or ultrasound may help to identify if this is the cause.

In brief: No

It is possible but it is certainly not common.
Unfortunately those few women who do experience scar tissue problems may find that those problems can be persistent and frustrating.
