Our expert says:
Orchitis is a very common cause of destruction of spermatogenesis and therefore it is likely that one’s ability to conceive may be diminished. The best way to try and assess if the mumps has damages spermatogenesis is for your husband to go for a full semen analysis. If the semen analysis is normal then in his particular case it has not interfered with his ability to try and conceive.
