In brief: Yes, sometimes
Trichomonas is an std caused by a single-celled parasite (it has 4 flagellae "tails" and can "swim").
In men, trichomonas infections have been reported to cause decreased sperm count and decreased sperm movement, leading to a greater risk of infertility. In women, trichomonas increases the risk of infertility by causing pelvic inflammatory disease in the fallopian tubes and connected areas.

In brief: Thanks for asking!
Trichomoniasis as such causes vaginal discharge, itching and irritation and sometimes painful urination.
People infected should be evaluated for syphilis, gonnorhea, chlamydia , and HIV which may contribute to infertility.
