Review: could Warfarin cause Impotence?

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Unable to reach orgasm state therefore no ejaculation, and erection starts to go, though that part can be rectified to a degree. This has been getting steadily worse over the last few months.
From this study (4 months ago):
From the periodic testing, the medicines taken, on the whole, achieve their purpose. However the cumulative side effects seem to result in sleepiness (to the point where normal functioning is not possible), and 'chemical castration' preventing satisfactory sexual intercourse even with Cialis (not taken daily, only on demand).
From this study (5 months ago):
shortage of breath flatulence
