Results: Univariate logistic regression analysis results showed that there was a statistically significant difference in educational levelcareer distribution and smoking between the case group and the control group (p<0.05)After controlling confounding factors in the multivariate logistic regression model, suffering from mumps or varicocele or orchitis (OR=1.228, p<0.001) in the past and smoking (OR=1.159, p=0.010) was associated with male infertility.
