Hi there,
After a heart attack few men may have problems in erection. It is most commonly due to anxiety and the emotional stress associated with having a heart attack. It can also be a side effect of beta-blockers. There are vascular problems in heart attack and as a man’s erection  results from blood flowing into the penis this can be due to vascular problems. If your doctor is prescribing calcium channel blockers or beta blockers they can make sex easier on your heart. It is suggested to discuss your concerns with your attending doctor. Treatment will depend on the exact cause of your condition. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
