Is having recently been a virgin somehow related to fertility problems, or is this just another urban myth?

In brief: Myth

The presence of a hymen or absence of sexual intercourse(virginity) does rule out pregnancy on most occasions, unless sperm is deposited near the vagina.
Otherwise, fertility is a separate issue from virginity.
