My boyfriend is on methadone and has been for a couple of years. We both want to try for a baby but I am worried he may be infertile as I have heard methadone makes a man infertile. Is this true? And if it is, will he only be infertile while he is on methadone? Will his fertility go back to normal when he comes off it?

I am an adult male that has been on methadone for over one year my wife is pregnant and quickly pregnant. I started using vitadone which helps sugar cravings subside and also helps the sterilrity issue but if he is on a high dose than he will probably continue to be sterile. im curently at 62 mg daily another thing the consistancy of this medication could be an issue as well. pot will also ruin the chance of getting pregnant as well. I hope this helps a little.

Sorry to hear your story and do wish you the best. Methadone indeed does cause male infertility regardless of what one persons personal experience may be. Short term use which is less than 2 years, in lower doses below 100 mgs a day can certainly allow for the possiblilty of a rare spontaneous pregnancy, but if the person has been using going over 2 years, I guarantee the methadone is effecting the male users fertility. Methadone effects the HPA axis of the brain-basically the hypothalamus and as you may know, all sex hormones necessary to sperm production are produced there. What this means is that methadone acts as a huge football team blocking the patrons from exiting the front door of the store to go to their homes! The hormones cannot get out because methadone is blocking their exodus! The brain of a methadone user is eventually unable to produce fsh, hcg, testosterone, neurotransmitters or any other hormone necessary for sperm production, sex and sense of wellbeing. I know, as I have a 7 year old son and he was born 1 year before having to take methadone. I was on 35 mgs for 5 years and decided to quit to have a baby naturally because it effected my hormones and sperm quality. Have been off a week now. If you need any information on herbs, supplements and other things that will help your boyfriend quit with little to no withdrawal, do let me know. I understand your post was a year ago, I only hope this helps and was not too late. Good luck!

Also, your friend will rebound and his fertility will improve in 4 to 8 weeks after quitting. Methadone does not cause permanent damage so hang in there.

beaunk7 if you could contact me or let me know more info about coming of methadone with little withdrawals that would be great. My bf has been on methadone for 2 years and they have him at 210mg. He wants to decrease but they keep increasing him because of his stomach issues. Not sure if I can leave my email on here or not but let me know cuz he really wants to get off it.

I know this is an old post but I'm just wondering if after you quit the methadone to try to have another baby if you had any success? My boyfriend and I have been trying but he was also having problems. He has been off methadone for about 2 mnths now.
