In brief: Talk to your doctor!

Erectile dysfunction can be a manifestation of depression that resolves w/treatment.
However, ssri class of antidepressants is also associated w/delayed orgasm, even to point of anorgasmia. While this is different from ed, it is still problematic. Some studies suggest that ed associated w/depression can be treated w/viagra & its competitors. Talk to your doc about your options, incl changing meds.
