My friend had had 5 abortions, .The last one in 2006. She has been on birth control from that time until 2010. Will this affect her having a baby now?

In brief: Not necessarily

Abortions generally do not cause infertility.
However, complications of abortions, such as uterine scarring may make it more difficult to conceive later. Fortunately, this risk is relatively low.

In brief: Fertility post AB

The number of abortions is less important than the physician that performed the procedure, and whether you had an post abortion complications.
In most cases this is a very safe procedure if performed by a competent md. In almost all cases using bcp;s does not decrease fertility. Exceptions are simultaneous infection or the onset of menopause.
