Why do women with Kartagener's syndrome suffer from infertility?

By Dra. Rut Gómez de Segura.
Last Update: 01/09/2020

Kartagener's syndrome is a genetic disease that affects the respiratory system. In addition, we also find impacts on the female reproductive system, and therefore on fertility.

Patients suffering from Kartagener's syndrome have a decreased motility of the fallopian tubes. This means that after ovulation, the tubes may not perform their function and may aspirate the egg and transport it to the endometrium.

If the woman's ovarian reserve is good, these patients will have a good prognosis of pregnancy with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment. By performing fertilization in the laboratory, we eliminate the problem of the tubes. The same is true for women whose fallopian tubes are blocked or dilated.
