On methadone maintenance program. Prescribed with Axiron for testosterone replacement. Will methadone cause infertility?

My husband is in a methadone maintenance program. He wanted to not be dependent on legally prescribed pain pills. His GP prescribe Axiron testosterone replacement for his lack of energy and low libido. We have been trying to conceive for several months now. Is it possible that the methadone or Axiron are making him infertile?
