There are some reports that methdone affects sperm motility, but that doesn't mean you can't get pregnant, just may be harder.  Plus it should not affect a baby.

Has he asked his doctor and/or counselor about this?  Is there any pamphlet with the meds?  If not, he could may want a sperm analysis.  If you are young, specialist won't see you until at least 1 year of trying but I'm sure he could get the analysis now.
