Yes.
1 Because the glandulartube in genital system and urinary system are liking with each other, bacteria or other pathogen could pass the urethra and enter the testis or epididymis.2 Prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, and inflammation in the deferent dusts could spread to testis and epididymis and causes a orchitis and epididymitis. And as a result, epididymitis often occur with prostatitis, vesculitis and urethritis.3 Some urine could go back to ejaculatory duct and causes a infection in epididymis. Bacuteria could also infect epididymis or the testis with urine through the lymphatic vessel.
