In brief: Varies

Maybe yes, maybe no, case are individual.
Some fertility disorders including ovulatory/endocrine problems, uterine fibroids, and endometriosis may have a pattern in families. Problems like tubal abnormalities don't. Sometimes understanding the underlying cause of difficulty allows a better prediction of difficulties in family members.
