In brief: Doubtful
Basically 'no' as long as ejaculation occurs inside the vagina.
If ejaculation is so premature to prevent entering the woman's vagina, then this may be important. Conventional wisdom and many folkstories hold that pregnancy can happen from ejaculation 'outside, ' there is no scientific evidence to support this. If true, it likely happens at a very much lower rate.

In brief: Usually not
Premature ejaculation should not affect the man's fertility, as long as he doesn't ejaculate until inside the woman's vagina.
If he has very, very premature ejaculation, and never makes it into the vagina, then fertility will decrease. Premature ejaculation is treatable, so one can be evaluated by a primary care doctor to begin treatment.
