BLUNTED KIDNEY: It is likely they are discribing a renal scar from infection and not intercourse. This will not likely resolve but a typical healthy person has lots of reserve function to make up for this loss. It typically has nothing to do with the ability get pregnant in the future.

Kidney contusion?: I assume you mean the kidney is bruised? If a renal contusion has occurred, it would be reportable in the literature. Or, are you describing a renal anomaly that could be congenital. It is more important to know if your kidney function is normal (measured by egfr) and do you have hypertension. Unless you have advanced kidney disease, this should have no bearing on your fertility.
