Mumps disease is generally self-limited, but it may be moderately debilitating. Naturally acquired mumps infection, including the estimated 30% of infections that are subclinical, confers long-lasting immunity. Among the reported mumps-associated complications, strong epidemiologic and laboratory evidence for an association with meningoencephalitis, deafness, and orchitis has been reported

The most common symptoms of the respondents are high fever, vomiting, dizziness and feeling of ill. Out of the 50 respondent 70 % use dye as a treatment to mumps and 24% use vinegar. It is more recommended for as early as infant the baby must receive vaccination.

Mumps can cause infertility to men if the mumps virus descends to the reproductive organ of the person affected by it. In particular the testis of the male, because if mumps become an orchitis or an inflammation of the testis , the production of the sperm can be affected. Spermatogenesis or the generation of the sperm can be affected which can lead to secession of sperm production.


This study to investigate the common motion about the possible link to mumps into infertility.
