Our expert says:
If you take your iron tablets as you should, your iron levels will rise by 1 each month (it should be >12), so it may take you 5 months to get it up to normal level. Did they try to find the reason for the anemia? Could be due to bleeding in the bowel, or malabsorbtion of iron (in which case tablets won't really work and you may need injections or drip or even blood transfusion) Anemia in itself won't cause erection dysfunction but can cause severe tiredness which may lead to sexual problems. Other causes of erectile dysfunction could be medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, certain medications, emotional causes (marriage problems etc).
