Does epididmitis orchitis cause sexual problems? Erectical dysfunction etc?

Low sperm count: Possibly but not likely. Oligospermia (low sperm count). Can be due to previous testis infection or epididymal scarring from previous infection and inflammation, however most men who have had epididymitis or even orchitis do not subsequently find themselves sub fertile or infertile. See a urologist and have a semen analysis. Ed is definitely not related.
