In brief: No
Factors that cause infertility affect ovulation, sperm parameters or tubal patency.
Vulvovaginal candidiasis is not a cause for infertility.

In brief: No, unless ...
Most women have had candida "yeast infections" but they don't affect fertility.
Rarely, an underlying medical condition can cause frequent infections - diabetes, or autoimmune disorders needing steroid treatment. Autoimmune disorders may be associated with recurrent miscarriage or infertility. Diabetes does not cause infertility but if poorly controlled increases miscariage and birth defect rates.

In brief: Maybe
Sperm like a slightly alkaline pH and vaginal yeast infections can alter this pH to the highly acidic side.
