So, you've had a B12 shot B12 supplementation of some sort and your're having erection problems. As far as I know, Vtamin B12 is generally safe when taken orally or as a shot as long as properly done. The only think I know that has been reported as a side effect would diarrhea (which a number of things could do that, itching, possible allergic response and blood clots. Now, I sure there other side effects perhaps not reported but I don't see a problem with erections. Something else has probably effected that not the B12 medication. B12 does a lot of things but it is most noted for its involvement with make red blood cells. Your loss of erection could be emotional/psychological and/or physical but chances are you're problem will clear up shortly. Men have erections problems from time to time and that's normal.
Vitamin B12 is LIKELY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth or when the prescription-only, injectable product is used correctly. In some people, vitamin B12 might cause diarrhea, blood clots, itching, serious allergic reactions, and other side effects.
