I recently was recently made aware that I had mercury

Customer Question
poisoning after having physical symptoms...
I recently was recently made aware that I had mercury poisoning after having physical symptoms. I had been taking a supplement from an unlicensed manufacturer, a tincture extract, and it had mercury in it. Today I ejaculated without any semen. I read that mercury can cause infertility. Does this mean I have infertility now? Or can I recover once the mercury has left my system?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
