In brief: Not usually

An abortion itself does not increase the chance of pregnancy.
Since pregnancy only occurs in those able to get pregnanct, abortion, like miscarriage, selects out the fertile segment of the population. In this way the apparent pregnancy rate is increased compared to the population at large. Among the risks of elective termination is infection or scarring, both of which can cause infertility.
