In brief: It could

Like any medical stress, diptheria could interfere with male and female fertility.
Good treatment, good nutrition, and good medical care will minimize the risks.

In brief: Unlikely

Diphtheria is an extremely rare disease in the age of vaccinations.
If you have been vaccinated, it is unlikely you have diphtheria. If you have a sore throat that is severe, i would suggest seeing a physician urgently. Diptheria infection typically occurs in the throat, and only very rarely involves the female genital organs.
