Yes: Monomucleosis, like any medical stress, can cause infertility in men and women. The effects are generally short-term and reversible.

Unlikely: Only if you are too tired to have sex....But seriously there should be no long term impact on fertility from having mono. In the short run certainly you could feel pretty bad....
