In brief: Yes!
I assume you're referring to erectile dysfunction or impotence or an inability to attain/sustain an erection adequate for intercourse.
If so, then yes, it becomes more common w/aging, especially if we smoke & drink alcohol to excess. Obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol/blood pressure & depression can cause ed. So can medications & low testosterone. It's time to get evaluated by your family doc.
