2 doctors agree

In brief: Possibly

It is rare but a D&C can cause infertility.
There is a small chance of developing a uterotubal infection after such a procedure. Also a syndrome called asherman can occur where scarring in the uterine cavity can occur in preventing implantation of the embryo.

Agree and emphasize Dr Chin's point that this is very rare

If the D&C had complications it will increase the probability of the uterine scarring. If you had an infection, trauma, repeat D&C, uterine damage, needed to be hospitalized, etc. If yes to any of the above have your doctor evaluate the uterine cavity priot to trying again.
