Find cause: Communication is the key in any marriage. If he does not get strong erections at any time (not just when you are together), look for an organic cause. Hemochromatosis and prolactinoma are two common causes that get missed by general physicians. If he's having trouble mostly when you're together, vary what you do and be open to all kinds of exploring. Your physician can help.

Erectile dysfunction: He needs a thorough history and physical examination by urologist . The doc would do some tests and would advise the appropriate therapy. If every thing turns out normal, then psychiatrist evaluation is next.

Many possibilities: You didn't mention age, medical history, medications or lifestyle. But in general, erectile dysfunction is more common as we age, possibly due to ravages of time & poor lifestyle, eg smoking, excess alcohol, etc. Obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, etc can all cause ed. So can medications used to treat many conditions. Low testosterone might have a role. Go see md.

Find the cause: I trust his physician has worked him up. Hemochromatosis and prolactinoma are important causes in a young man that often get missed by primary care physicians. If he gets strong erections when he's asleep or fantasizing, then couples therapy is a plan. When you are intimate, find new ways to pleasure one another that do not involve intercourse; this often does the trick.

ED: First of all, this issue is a very sensitive one and should be discussed in a gentle and non critical fashion. The length of time that erectile dysfunction has been present is important. Other medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and medications can affect ED. Stress, anxiety, low testosterone are other factors. Not all ED is physical or organic.

Take him to his doc: Men suffering from erectile dysfunction need to do some introspection. Stress, whether from performance anxiety, work, money, family, friends & most importantly, relationship w/partner, is most common cause, followed by tobacco use, excess alcohol, etc. Obesity & chronic medical conditions don't help either, especially diabetes, high cholesterol & blood pressure. Bottom line, take him to his doc.
