Generally: not, however it should be TREATED and such treatment is generally simple and effective...get a referral to a UROLOGIST and discuss the "whole" problem....there may be a different cause for your erectile difficulties. Hope this is helpful! Dr Z

Depends on surgery: Many men have all sorts of surgeries, and afterwards have no problems with erections. Your question does not mention the type of surgery, but some prostate surgeries do have impotence as a side effect. Please send in another question to healthtap, with some details so that our medical experts can better help you. Thanks!

Lots of choices: If you are a man having premature ejaculation then there are lots of option such as medication (ssri), techniques (sensate focus) and many more. Your profile says you are a woman. If your partner is having problems maintaining an erection that hormone evaluation and ed medication (viagra (sildenafil) and others) can be very helpful.
