Welcome to HCM.
Iron deficiency will not affect your chances of conceiving.there will be no effect on your baby.but for conceiving his semen analysis should be normal.
After conceiving your iron level will affect on your baby so start haemetinics after conceving under your gynecologist's guidance.

There no need to worry because of the iron deficiency in your husband can not make any trouble to conceive or your future child too.
Husband will give you only sperms; and there is not any relation between iron and Sperms.
