Hello and welcome to HCM,
Keloid is not an autoimmune disorder.
It is overgrowth of connective tissue after trauma, injury, or during healing of some injury site.
Most common site of keloid is ear lobule after ear piercing.
The management of keloid is surgical removal, however, keloids are known to recur.
Keloid is not associated with any disorder that interferes with conception.
You need to consult your gynecologist if you are facing any problem in conception.

Thanks and take care
