Monkeypox (MPX) is an emerging zoonotic virus of the genus Orthopoxvirus that can occasionally be transmitted to humans. With globalization and high-speed spread around the world, MPX has distributed across continents, has risen to the top of the world concerns. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, recent outbreaks of the virus have raised concerns about serious comorbidities, and risks to the fertility of those affected. The virus can be transmitted through contact with an infected animal, virus-contaminated surfaces, or an infected person through body fluids (including vertical transmission), wounds, respiratory droplets, respiratory secretions, skin lesions, or significantly through semen and vaginal fluid. Understanding the pathophysiology will help determine the mechanism of action of monkeypox virus. Many questions about monkeypox remain unanswered. A deeper understanding of these issues will help develop preventive and therapeutic approaches to viral infertility and sexually transmitted infections. But since contamination of semen with other viruses can have adverse effects on male fertility, until all aspects of the disease are known, it is recommended to take precautions during sexual activity to reduce the risk of contracting monkeypox.
