In brief: Sometimes

Pd can cause ed sometimes for different reasons.
The mechanism which traps blood in the penis can be damaged by pd, or the curvature can make sex physically difficult if not impossible. Sometimes pd causes pain sufficient to inhibit satisfactory intercourse. However in many cases the ed if present can be helped with oral medications or self injection. More sever cases may require surgery.

Scar tissue forms in the tunica albuginea, the thick sheath of tissue surrounding the corpora cavernosa and causes pain, abnormal curvature, erectile dysfunction, indentation, loss of girth and shortening of the penis. There is no proven therapy that is effective.
