Hi brillbride, I'd be interested to see if there are any responses to this. My DH had mumps last year and at the time we asked the doc if there would be any infertility problems resulting. He checked with the labs in Beaumont and they said that it's a myth that mumps causes problems. On the other hand I have read one of Robert Winston's books and he said you should get your partner checked out if he has had mumps (this book was over 20 years old so I'm sure there's lots of research been done since). We've been TCC for 16 months now, onto 17th month, DH is getting SA done this week so we'll find out if there are any problems there.. All the best, Mrs P

Hi girls, I'm the youngest of three, after my mums second my dad got mumps and the doctor told them to thank god they had their son! (nice -roll eye smilie needed) and that my dad was basically now infertile. Anyway a couple of years later I came along causing a major surprise! Anyway hope that helps :wv
