    Evening. Have you had a voluntary termination of pregnancy before? What method was used? If you did a D&C in the past, there could be a complication whereby your uterus could have healed with the walls sticking together thereby reducing the cavity of the uterus. This will cause reduction in menstrual flow and ultimately cause infertility. An imbalance in your hormone too can be responsible for this so you will need to do a hormonal assay to know if that is the cause. Have a good night rest
