If untreated yes: this a bacterial infection. Appropriate antibiotic treatment recommended along with what is known as a test of cure culture after treatment completed to ensure infection gone. Can affect sperm motility if not properly treated which can lead to fertility problems in the future. Please be sure you see doctor, get appropriate antibiotic treatment. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R

He is absolutely correct, but the current opinion is you ARE LIKELY protected from future infection with Zika. However, while this virus has been known about a long time, research is still ongoing and time will answer your question. Also, even virus like chicken pox which we become immune to you can over time lose immunity.
