In brief: Maybe -Temporarily

Sperm production is decreased in the testes by long periods of increased testicular temperatures.
However there can be some fall in the sperm count without a drop in fertility. A day of decreased sperm production would not cause permanent infertitily but it "might" cause a temporary drop in fertility.
