In brief: No

Streptococcal bacteria infections commonly cause strep throat, but do not make people sterile.
Even the group b streptococcus that can infect pregnant women and their newborns is not known to cause sterility.

In brief: Very unlikely.

Strep (all groups) does not tend to be invasive in the pelvic area.
It is very unlikely to reach the tubes and damage them, the way gc and chlamydia often do.
