Most women with Kartagener's syndrome have normal ovarian cycles, although fertility problems are common. The fallopian tubes of women with Kartagener's syndrome lack cilia, making it difficult for the egg and sperm to meet. In addition, if the egg is fertilized, the embryo formed will not reach the uterus to be implanted. Therefore, women with Kartagener's syndrome have a high percentage of ectopic pregnancy.
