Hi Hypothyroidism can itself be the cause of erection problems. Other causes that can be ruled out by laboratory means is male hormone level abnormalities, high cholesterol etc.
I would avice you have your male hormone levels measured- total testosterone, free testosterone, SHBG levels, LH, FSH and prolactin levels, fasting lipid profile, HBa1c. Have a strict control over thyroid levels by frequent testing atleast onece in 3 months initially.
You could take L-Arginine sachets once per day for whatever benefit it may pprovide. If problem persist contact an urologist for a trial prescription of viagra or cialis.
