Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
every drugs has side effect
codein should be use for limited period only
but as you might have taken in small amount ,it will have no major side effect
as far as semen is concern ,i dont think it will damage it
but better to semen analysis
if there is any damage ,it will recover once you stop it
dont take it from today
I hope I have answered your question
