Thanks for posting your query.
Lortab contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone. You are taking it for quite some time for pain. It does not affect sperm count or motility. You need not worry. You can continue taking these while you are going for artificial insemination. Please do not worry.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
