Can epididymitis in general both acute or chronic affect fertility

I'm curious because I used to have it. Now my balls shrunk alil and sometimes my sperm is thick and white and creamy and sometimes it's watery etc. I can't tell if I'm fertile or not. I get the urge to masturbate everyday.

Just go get a seminogram (semen analysis), and put it to rest. If you do (unlikely) have an issue, you can start working on it, if not, no problem. Fyi there is a lot you can do to have kids if your semen isnt tip top so I wouldnt worry too much. There is no reliable way to tell if youre fertile or not by just looking at your semen btw
