The male genital tract is the target of several bacterial and viral infections that can have deleterious consequences not only in the males themselves but also in their partners, and progeny. Infections of the male genital tract can lead to infertility and sexual dissemination of major bacterial or viral pathogens including emerging viruses. The management of bacteriospermia and male viral infection (HIV, hepatitis B and C, human papilloma virus, ZIKA and SARS-CoV-2) during medically assisted reproduction (MAR) will also be discussed not only in a clinical point of view but also considering the MAR procedures.
