Can a spermatocele make you sterile?

Can a spermatocele make you sterile?

Very unlikely...: While spermatocele contains sperms, the cause for its formation is still unclear; but, one thing for sure is somehow it's connected with convoluted tubules of peididymis so sperms exist there.

Tubal damage: The main impact (and it can be extremely significant) of chlamydia on female fertility is tubal damage. This includes adhesions ('scar') around the tubes and/or ovaries, thickening of the tubal walls and disruption of the cilia that line them, to partial or complete blockage.
