Welcome to

Males past puberty who develop mumps have a 30 percent risk of orchitis.The condition rarely can lead to infertility.The chances of infertility is about 30 percent if condition is bilateral.

You can take mild analgesics if u have associated pain.

Typically two separate semen analyses will be required to know about your spermatogenesis.

A specialist in male infertility will be able to guide you and give a valuable information.

Thanks for the service.

Wish u a good health.
