Less Likley : Even for men- problems with fertility occur if mumps occurs later in life (typically).
Dr. Kenneth Crabb

Probably not: I am not aware of a case on infertility in women from mumps.
Dr. Thomas Lyons
Gynecology 44 years experience
Not Likely: Mumps is not known to cause fertility problems in women.
Dr. Sathish Adigopula

Yes, possible: Oopheritis (swelling of ovaries) caused by mumps and may cause infertility.
