In brief: Possible
While having erectile dysfunction (ed) should not be considered "normal" at any age, it can affect men at different ages.
Ed is usually secondary to medical problems like cardiovascular disease and diabetes but can also occur after surgery for prostate diseases. If you are not aware of any medical conditions, you should be seen by a physcian, as ED may be the first sign of underlying problem.

Risks for ED are high cholesterol, hypertension medications, smoking, drug use, pelvic surgery, pelvic trauma, among others.
Even without risk factors is may be normal to have decreased penile rigidity at age 43 as compared to 18. The use of agents like viagra (sildenafil) can help if you are a candidate for their use.
