If your anemia is the common iron deficiency anemia that many menstruating females get , then your urinary tract infections are probably unrelated to your anemia.

It may- but generally that is not a major factor in recurrent UTIs . It may be part of another condition which might do so. So pl have it investigated. Good luck
