Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Mumps adversely affects male fertility. Orchitis (Infection of testis) is a common complication in adult males, occurring in about 20% of patients who contract infection with the Mumps virus. Those who develop the complication of Orchitis can suffer damage to the sperm producing cells of the testis - resulting in reduction of sperm production. Before coming to any conclusions get your semen analysis done. It will guide to further management. Take care.
