There is no evidence that Covid infection or vaccination has any adverse effect on fertility. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!

Her case was relatively mild and re assess any symptoms for the next several weeks. More studies are needed, but there is unlikely to be any affect on fertility among mild patients.
