I wouldn't think so, but I've always been told not to have sex while being treated for a UTI because you want to keep the are as clean as possible. But I can't imagine it would harm the sperm or limit your chances of conceiving.

Can a urinary tract infection interfere with getting pregnant?

First, the infection itself shouldn't interfere with conception unless you're in such poor health with it that you can't have sexual intercourse! If you already have a urinary infection and are taking antibiotics, there's a theoretical possiblility of interference, but I wouldn't count on it. In general, the answer is "NO". Be aware, however, of the distinction between VENEREAL DISEASE and UTI or URINARY TRACT INFECTION. Some venereal infections can damage reproductive organs if untreated, leading to reproductive difficulties.

What will happen if a urinary tract infection is left untreated for over a year?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) occurs anywhere in the urinary tract between the urethra (the outlet "pipe") and either or both of the kidneys. If it's confined to the urethra it's called urethritis. If it's in the bladder it's cystitis. If it travels up the ureter to the kidney it can develop into pyelonephritis, which is inflammation of the upper urinary tract. Acute pyelonephritis usually results from bladder infection (cystitis). It is usually treated with antibiotics and painkillers. Untreated and repeated UTIs may result in chronic pyelonephritis, which can eventually cause permanent kidney damage. A bad urinary tract infection left for over a year would undoubtedly cause some damage, if not to the kidneys then to the bladder. At the very least you would need to keep the urinary tract flushed out with copious amounts of non-caffeinated liquid.

Can too many urinary tract infections cause infertility?

In males, it seems possible since the sperm cells pass through the urinary tract. As they are cells can be infected by bacterial or other micro-pathogens to become sterile and ineffective in fertility of the ovum. A more likely cause for infertility would be organ damage, and the testes are quite a ways from the areas that tend to get infected. In females the urinary tract is distinctly separate and in no way can effect fertility unless bacterial infection enters the female reproductive tract to infect the ovum or cause internal damage. It won't affect fertility in females as the urinary tract has nothing to do with the genital tract.
