In brief: Not necessarily

That depends on the reason why your parents had difficulty conceiving - some conditions that affect fertility can be passed along in families, like polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos.
Other things are not influenced by genetics, such as if you or your sister have blocked fallopian tubes. See a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist for testing and treatment.
