Tubercle bacillus from the kidney go through the prostete, seminal vesicle and then enter the epididymis. Once the patient is infected with tubercle bacillus in the epididymis, his symptoms can be very obvious. As a result, the disease can be discovered in low stage. If one patients is diagnosed with tuberculous epididymitis, tuber bacillus can be found in both prostate and seminal vesicle. As prostate, seminal vesicle and the epididymis are very important organs in the genital system, as long as they are infected with tubercle bacillus, their would malfunction. The produce and growth of sperm gets poor, and the activity of sperm gets lower. Meanwhile, because of the lesion and blockage in the epididymis, sperm cannot enter seminal vesicle or ejaculatory duct. That's how tuberculous epididymitis causes infertility.
