how long does anemia take to be cured?

Depends: It depends on what kind of anemia you have , is it due to blood loss, iron deficiency, anemia of chronic disease, sickle cell anemia, is it due to bone marrow failure, vitamin B12 deficiency; some anemia will never be cured (sickle anemia) due to it's genetic origin; however if it is due to blood lost, it should be corrected immediately when you received a blood transfusion for example.
