Retractile testis: No, it should not affect your fertility

Not likely: This elevation of the testicle is a normal reaction during the male sexual response. While a too high a temperature can affect fertility it is more a constant thing (tight underwear, undescended testicle(s), or varicoele that affect fertility.
