Unlikely an issue: A sperm analysis should be able to answer your personal question about possible fertility.Mumps is more likely to cause testicular issues if you have it in your late teens or adulthood. That said, it is not common for it to cause infertility.You have 2, and if one functions well enough, it could do the deed.
