In brief: Unlikely

A rare but well-recognized complication of hernia surgery is trauma to the tube that carries sperm, the vas deferens (that's the tube that is clipped when performing a vasectomy).
In order to have fertility problems, a person would have had the misfortune of trauma to both sides--possible but unlikely.

In brief: NO

Hernias do not affect having children.
Your children may be born with a hernia, but there is no increased risk that your children will be born with a hernia.
