In brief: Should not.
Recurrent epididymitis in males can cause infertility.
Womans urinary tract and genital tracts are separate and thus rec urring utis should not cause infertility.

In brief: Find the Cause
You need to figure out why you are having recurrent urinary tract infections.
You may have an abnormality in your urinary tract. Those can be associated with abnormalities of the reproductive system. If it is from anal contamination, you need to be careful. Those bacteria can scar your tubes and cause infertility.
