Can taking prescription pain killers and opiates cause infertility?

Men yes, women maybe

Infertility
Men on short-term or long-term prescription or illegal opiates can have decreases in Luteinizing Hormone (LH) levels, lower testosterone levels, and lower sperm counts and/or reduced sperm quality (motility or morphology). We know less about effects on women. Long-acting opiates (pills or patches) can cause low hormones, absent periods (amenorrhea) or irregular cycles. See http://1.usa.gov/GzNxYS

Dr. Leila Wing answered:

is taking testosterone bad? Will in cause infertility?

Decreases fertility

Testosterone
Testosterone can decrease fertility by telling the brain to no longer produce testosterone. The testicles will shrink (atrophy) when replacement testosterone. There are only a few number of conditions which require treatment for low testosterone. Your doctor will ask you specific questions like medications (especially opiates), history of brain tumors, history of testicular disorders.

Many reasons

Infertility
Problems with the fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus and/or sperm are the major reasons. I see that you are 45 years old---age is probably a major factor. Go to this website to read about causes of infertility, the basic infertility evaluation, and treatment options as it won't all fit here http://www.rockymountainfertility.com . I would see a fertility doctor immediately.

what causes infertility or a weak uterous?

Many things

Infertility
Infertility can be caused by lack of ovulation, blocked tubes, abnormal formation of the uterus, poor timing of sex, abnormal sperm. The term "weak uterus" doesn't have any specific meaning. The cervix can be "weak" so that it can't hold in a pregnancy. The uterus can have abnormalities in the structure that block a pregnancy from implanting.
