Hello and welcome to HCM,
Iron deficiency can lead to tiredness, lack of concentration, irritability etc.
Decrease in libido can also occur.
Iron deficiency anemia is treated with iron supplements and is monitored by routine blood examination.
It takes 3 months for the iron levels and iron stores to completely replenish.
However, iron deficiency is not the only cause for loss of libido.
Thus, if the symptoms are too prolonged you can consult a sexologist for clinical assessment and counselling if required.

Thanks and take care
