Can mumps cause infertility due to testicular factor?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/07/2022

Mumps, commonly called mumps, is a contagious disease caused by a viral infection. Mumps can result in meningitis, inflammation of the pancreas and inflammation of the testicles, which can lead to male infertility.

Inflammation of the testicles causes them to atrophy, so that sperm production is impaired. Therefore, the male reproductive capacity is diminished.
