In brief: What type of laser?

I assume you mean a laser ablation of the cervix? If so, yes, this can cause scar tissue on the womb but may be an effective therapy for cervical pathology.

In brief: Yes

Any type of ablation in the uterus essentially burns the inner lining of the uterus, and this is a type of scar. An embryo cannot implant properly on the burned area and can lead to a very high risk pregnancy.
