In brief: Possibly
Both hypo and hyperthyroidism can cause erectile dysfunction (impotence).
The condition of low thyroid levels (hypothyroidism) is more likely to do so. Furthermore, untreated hypothyroidism can lead to high prolactin levels, that may additionally contribute to sexual dysfunction.
