This article reviews the current studies published on the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in semen and the potential effect of COVID-19 on male fertility. The aim was to provide insight into different possible mechanisms of involvement of the male reproductive system by SARS-CoV-2 infection and to evaluate the studies investigating the presence of virus in semen. It is concluded that the likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 transmission through semen is low and that COVID-19 may negatively affect semen parameters, but that the impairment is probably short-termed.
