Hi Sharon,

Thanks for posting your query.

You have had a healthy baby earlier. I do not think it is very difficult for you to conceive again.

Continue your treatment for Hypothyroidism as it is very important for you to become pregnant. Morphine per say does not cause infertility. It may cause a decrease in the sex drive. Please repeat his semen analysis.

Hope this helps. All the best.
