Whether having an abortion makes it harder for a woman to conceive, I do not know. However, there are other physical and emotional repercussions to consider before one decides on whether an abortion is the most viable decision. Usually after an abortion it is normal for a woman to feel weak and tired. Cramps, sickness and possible bleeding are also common. Hormone levels drop, there is a soreness of the breasts and feelings of depression are also likely to take place. However these are merely the tip of the iceberg. "It now seems that the size of the hidden problem is greater than previously thought," commented The Sunday Times. "Half the unmarried women who have abortions for therapeutic reasons end up needing psychiatric help. Couples who decide to have a pregnancy terminated can face acute grief reactions? and that they find the grief "difficult to cope with." To view an abortion as an operation of convenience is misguided. Before deciding on having an abortion I would suggest reading some of the printed topics on the subject here. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/s/r1/lp-e?q=abortion&p=par
No, it won't make it any more difficult for you to conceive but there is a chance of having complications that can make it hard or even impossible to conceive. I'd vote on letting the baby live, but it's your choice.
It doesn't always make it hard. BUT it can if there are any complications, such as infections and/or scarring. That could make it hard. But I do know a few girls that have had one (I don't judge anybody) and went on to have kid(s) perfectly fine.
It can only affect future pregnancies in the same manner other things "might". A pregnancy can make it difficult to conceive, medical treatments can make it difficult to conceive, etc. chances are slim to none if you had no complications. Please don't let anyone guilt trip you.
