In brief: Shouldn't but . . .
"too much" sex is pretty vague.
What's too much for one person might not be enough for someone else. Regardless, if one has sex w/multiple partners (again, number is open to debate) w/o protection, there's an increase risk for sexually transmitted infection/disease (sti/std) which can be complicated by pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) which could cause infertility. Btw, fertility decreases w/age.
