In brief: Maybe
There is a slightly increased risk for infertility in sisters, since they share dna, and have similar patterns of ovulation, uterine health, endometriosis and egg numbers.
Don't assume there is a problem, but seek help if you have problems conceiving. Consult with a specialist in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

In brief: No
No. Infertility is typically not genetic in nature.
You may not have the same trouble that your sister had.
