In brief: It doesn't (so far)

Avastin (bevacizumab) is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits blood vessel growth.
It can impair fertility in women, but i don't find any studies that show reduction in male fertility. For the fda prescribing information with all side effects, go here: http://www.Gene.Com/gene/products/information/pdf/avastin-prescribing.Pdf.

In brief: Not sure

Cholesterol-lowering agents can reduce the ability to build new membranes and sperm need lots of new membranes.
Having said this, a definitive relationship between cholesterol lowering agents and male infertility has not been described.
