Afib can be a symptom of multiple medical problems that can affect sexual function.

Atrial fib should not affect erectile dysfunction in any direct way.
However, two classes of medications commonly used to control heart rate in atrial fib (beta blockers and calcium channel blockers) can cause ed, or more commonly worsen ED symptoms that already exist.
