In brief: Possibly

Hyperthyroidism that is untreated can be associated with many symptoms, both physical and psychological.
When one feels poorly, it is not surprising that one has a low libido.

There has been evidence published to indicate that up to 15% of men with hyperthyroidism may have erectile dysfunction which corrects when the hyperthyroid condition is appropriately managed.
